M&A Advisory

Our goal is to find the optimal buyer for you and your company. Because of this, we take the time to create buyer lists that are well-researched. We look for strategic, financial, family offices, and individual buyers that are the best fit for your business and will offer the optimal deal for you.

This isn’t a “one size fits all” approach that far too many M&A Advisory firms use. We take the time to get to know you, your financial goals/needs, and your company to find the buyers that make the most sense.

Buyer Analysis

Closing a transaction requires negotiation skills to make sure the details that ultimately affect you, the seller, are addressed. Our deal team is not only are familiar with all the hurdles that can arise during negotiations, but their years of experience also allow them to overcome them. Our M&A professionals are your powerful allies during the most crucial stages of business negotiations. Our clients often tell us that without our negotiation skills and helping them to understand what the buyers are after; their transactions would most likely not have closed.

Buyer Negotiations

No two deals are the same just as no two deal structures are the same. Every client we work with is unique, having personal, financial, and business goals that require the structuring of their deals to match their needs. We are diligent to first learn and understand the needs of our clients and their businesses. We then work hard to negotiate the optimal deal that provides not only the valuation required but deal structures that protect the client and their business over the longer term.

Due Diligence

A typical due diligence checklist can consist of 100 or more detailed questions covering every aspect of your business from sales and marketing to HR, IT, operations, and accounting. This is where most deals can fall apart, especially if the documentation is not accurate, and readily available, to provide buyers. Before entering this critical phase, our deal team works hard to get the client and his/her team ready for the types of questions that will often arise.

Exiting a company via an acquisition/merger event is a huge undertaking for most business owners. Far too many put off planning to sell their business because the task can be very daunting. Our M&A professionals have experience working with business owners through this often emotional and stressful process. We work closely with our clients to ensure that the exit plans pursued are optimal for them.
