"Propane Resources provided me with a detailed feasibility study that allowed me to make an informed investment decision. Though the project was not pursued, I am comfortable with investigative data. They were able to identify variables that I originally had not considered. I appreciated the report and most importantly, the follow up discussion with the team." - Carlton Revere, Revere Gas, Inc.

  Motor Propane"Selling our family business after having served our neighborhood propane customers for nearly 30 years was much more involved and stressful than when we first started our business" says Motor Propane co-owner Julie Schaus. "We are grateful we had the guidance and professional expertise of the entire Propane Resources team to help us through this process. Tamera Kovacs was the catalyst, she helped us to achieve our goal of closing the sale of our business within six months' time." - Greg & Julie Schaus, Motor Propane
Kaw Valley Propane"Propane Resources provided our company with a thorough description of the entire sale process. They met every deadline and delivered on all of our expectations. Any questions we had during the process were answered immediately. Tamera and Cooper confidentially and professionally handled all of the details of the transaction and provided any assistance we requested." - Jerry Manning, Kaw Valley Propane  
  Thermogas, Inc"When it came time to sell the family business founded by our father, we knew we had one chance to get it right, maximizing the value we would get for our business. We had worked with Propane Resources over the years and it was a natural decision to have them represent us in such an important business decision and transaction. They helped us work through our family dynamics and get the right deal. Looking back on the experience, I can say, running a propane business does not prepare you for everything required in selling your business. The Propane Resources team was there to help us through every step. - Cynthia Brewer, Thermagas, Inc.
Kaw Valley Propane"Our company had a valuation prepared by Propane Resources in February 2008. We learned much about the criteria used to value propane companies and implemented ideas to improve our company value. When it was time to sell our company in December 2014 the valuation was very much improved. Tamera and her staff at Propane Resources represented us and helped us through the offering, discussions with potential buyers, acceptance of an offer, due diligence, and closing. Their representation brought increased value to the transaction and made our transition smooth and relatively easy. Thanks Propane Resources for a job well done." - E. Gray Deans, CPA, Chief Financial Officer, F. Ray Moore Oil Company, Inc.  
  "Thanks so much for all your efforts in making this sale happen. You added much to the comfort level of the Owners throughout this process. That made such an impact." Campbell Oil - NC

financing, your first step should be obtaining a fair market valuation.

Propane Resources' professionals have completed more than 300 professional, confidential valuations for propane companies. Just call us at 913-262-1545 and ask to speak with Tamera Kovacs.

Kaw Valley Propane"In 2013, our company, Conger LP Gas, Inc., had the opportunity to make an acquisition that was a unique opportunity. I contacted Tamera at Propane Resources for advice on how to proceed and we were very pleased with the results. not only did Tamera provide us with a very detailed evaluation that was extremely helpful in securing the financing we needed to complete the deal, both she and the team at Propane Resources provided several options that helped to seal the deal with the seller. Without hesitation, I have recommended other propane companies to contact Tamera and her team because of their professional approach, knowledge of the propane industry, and prompt completion of the project." - Dan Richardson, Conger LP Gas, Inc.  
  Motor Propane"This past summer 2014, we requested Propane Resources perform a fair market valuation and spend a few days at our location reviewing the business and operations. We wanted to identify opportunities for improvement and were looking for them to see the things we were either too close to see or what we perhaps “refused” to see. We have begun implementing many of their suggestions and we’ve already realized they were right on target with their observations. We are excited to realize the long term benefits from the changes we are implementing." - Barry Boehlke, Boehlke Bottled Gas
"There is not a better company to work with when you need a valuation of your propane company. I hired Propane Resources to value my three retail propane companies for financial/legal purposes. The advantage they gave me was being able to work with their whole team during this process. This was not just one person giving you his opinion, but rather a whole team of both propane industry experienced and valuation/accounting experienced personnel. From the onset, through the conclusion, I received excellent and very credible representation." Tom Dudley, Ohio
