Robert H. Perry & Associates, Incorporated (RHPA) was founded by Robert H. Perry in 1977. Prior to starting the firm, Mr. Perry was a partner in a Certified Public Accounting firm where he advised corporate clients in areas of taxation, auditing, and general managerial matters. RHPA was originally formed as an intermediary boutique firm managing the sale of companies in the general middle market sector.
Our experience in managing the sale of private security companies began in 1981, when we managed the sale of a privately-held contract security company to a New York Stock Exchange conglomerate. Through our involvement in this sale, we realized that the contract security industry was beginning a consolidation period that would (and has) lasted for many years.
The owners of these companies who wanted to sell needed a professional firm to represent them: one that was without conflict of interest with the buyer population, one that could advise on the expected price before putting the company on the market, and one that had the experience to manage the unique selling process and confidentiality aspects for contract security companies.
“We became the only firm that could offer these services to the contract security industry.”
In 2004, at the request of several international multi-services security conglomerates, we extended our transaction management expertise to the security systems integration and central station alarm sector and created a new division to serve owners of companies in these industries.
Our Firm Today
Today, our firm exclusively represents sellers of contract security (guarding), security systems integration, and central station alarm companies. We only represent sellers, which eliminates any conflicts of interest in our transaction engagements. Through our proven methods and commitment to our seller/clients, we can successfully represent sellers located in North and South America, Europe, and the Middle East.
