Press release:

The Retirement Advantage, Inc. (TRA) Searches for TPA Acquisition

Issued by: The Retirement Advantage [TRA]

Date: Oct. 4, 2016

As an industry-leading provider of third party administration (TPA) services nationwide, The Retirement Advantage, Inc. (TRA) is actively searching for TPA business owners interested in succession planning opportunities.
Matt Schoneman, president of TRA, is seeking to acquire TPA firms that:
•     May have recently lost their momentum
•     Are underperforming in some way
•     Are in need of a CEO, such as corporate divestitures or family-held businesses with no successors

“We are an experienced cash buyer with a successful history when it comes to procuring and integrating firms into TRA. Our acquisitions include 14 deals over the past 15 years,” asserts Schoneman. “Generally, we seek companies that fit within our core strategy, strengthen existing competencies, generate quality revenues, extend market position and build economies of scale.”

Schoneman understands acquiring businesses is first and foremost a “people business.” He explains, “TRA works to create business opportunities that deliver real value to real people. We realize this is a life-changing event for business owners, their families and employees. What’s more, we understand the psychology of the deal, the emotions and implications that come with it.”

TRA offers TPA owners the chance to explore transiting ownership quickly for cash while also seamlessly transitioning the business. To discuss acquisition opportunities, email or call 920.831.3263.
