One of the most important things in this business is fit. If there isn't a good fit between us, we will still find a way to help you even if it means we don't make a dime.
It is very difficult to sell a business. To get a successful outcome your advisors need to go all out through the entire process and especially when the going gets tough, because it will.
Before you ever engage us, we will make sure you understand the marketplace, the value of your company, its strengths & weaknesses in a sale and what to expect in the process.
Our practice is focused on delivering results for business owners who meet a specific set of requirements:
We start with understanding your financial goals, goals for the ongoing operation of your company, and what you want for your employees. We do a complimentary sellability assessment and valuation so that you can better understand the price that the company may sell for and the reasons behind it.
We have a very specific sale process that we use to confidentially put your company on the market with the aim of attracting multiple offers in the same timeframe. We are tenacious when it comes to running this process, getting buyers to a "yes" or a "no", and keeping everything on track once you have accepted an offer.
Through our association with the International Business Brokers Association, we have access to strategic and financial buyers in all fifty states.
Selling a business also involves the use of other professionals. We have a strong network of accountants to make sure your books are bullet-proof, M&A attorneys to make sure you are not taken advantage of by the other side, and wealth managers who specialize in working with owners who have just had major liquidity events.
