Southern Foods Inc.

“BKD Corporate Finance was a valuable advisor as we executed the sale of our company to Reinhart. BKD has been my long-time accounting firm and when…Partner Jerry Henderson recommended that we tap into the expertise of the Corporate Finance team…I listened. I am glad I did. Tony Schneider and his colleagues gave exceptional guidance throughout the process and was a solid and appreciated liaison as we negotiated the terms of our sale. I firmly believe this transaction was done…on the right terms and conditions and I am excited about the prospects of Southern Foods being a meaningful contributor to Reinhart’s continued success. BKD Corporate Finance was a key contributor to this successful closing.”
