Press Release

Closed Transaction Announcement
Bravaldo Capital Advisors
Has been acquired by:

Bravaldo Capital Advisors, Inc. (“BCA”) is pleased to announce that its client QCFS Management Group, Inc. (“QCFS”), a Pensacola, Florida based provider of aerial and underground fiber and cable installation and maintenance services, completed a successful sale to Accelerated Communications and Construction, LLC (“ACC”), a Gulf Breeze, Florida based company that provides similar services. BCA served as exclusive advisors to QCFS and provided vital transaction advice through closing.

Fred Shehadi, Co-owner and Operations Manager for QCFS, stated, “We have worked with BCA for many years to consider when exit timing was right in the marketplace to achieve a desired valuation and outcome. There were many challenges to overcome when we finally decided to sell, but BCA had our backs and kept the process moving. Our goal was not simply to maximize valuation; we also wanted to find a buyer that would take care of our employees. Ultimately BCA guided us to a successful closing with our preferred choice of buyer.”

Don Bravaldo, President of Bravaldo Capital Advisors, added, “Fred and David Shehadi and their team have built an exceptional business serving demanding telecom customers that should continue to grow for years to come. It was our pleasure to help them find the right partner that will continue the QCFS mission of providing exceptional service and quality workmanship for increasingly critical media and communications infrastructure systems. I am proud that our team could play an important role in helping the Shehadi family implement their desired business exit and start a new chapter in life.”
