Bellevue, WA: Berntson Porter Corporate Advisory Advises the Owners of Yorkston Oil Co. on a Sale to Christensen, Inc.

Berntson Porter Corporate Advisory, LLC (“BPCA”), an M&A advisor serving middle market clients in the Pacific Northwest, today announced it acted as the exclusive financial advisor to the owners of Yorkston Oil Co. (“Yorkston”), based in Bellingham, WA, in a sale to Christensen, Inc. (“Christensen”), based in Richland, WA.

Yorkston, a third-generation family-owned business, distributes gasoline, diesel, and lubricants to independent stations and commercial accounts in the region. The Company also owns, operates, and supplies convenience stores, gas stations, and Commercial Fuel Network sites in Northwestern Washington State.

Christensen, also family-owned, distributes fuels, lubricants, and propane from seven locations in Washington and Oregon. The acquisition of Yorkston was appealing to Christensen in that it gave them a stronger presence in Skagit and Whatcom counties.

This is the eleventh completed transaction that BPCA has advised on since the firm’s formation in 2017, and the second in 2021. Other completed M&A transactions include companies in the manufacturing, industrial services, professional services, construction, technology, and distribution sectors.
