Expertise In Buying A Local Business
We are qualified to work with both Financial and Strategic Buyers. We can bring vital components to the table that other professionals, such as CPA’s, attorney’s, investment bankers and property focused realtors, are unable to bring that will increase the odds of a sale and maximize the amount of money you walk away with in your pocket.
We utilize other professionals as part of our team, and are equipped to lead the team having experience to handle all aspects of a business sale.
We specialize in the sale of businesses. We have the knowledge, experience and connections needed for a successful sale worldwide.
For a faster sale, we prepare a professional business value estimate to determine your company’s fair market value and ensure that it is priced appropriately.
We prepare a complete and thorough Offering Package that gives a qualified buyer in-depth information about your business. We provide detailed information that a registered, qualified buyer wants to know to help them make an informed decision. Spending more time and attention preparing for the sale results in a smoother sale process.
We design a custommarketing plan to promote your business to likely buyers. We directly market your business through our global networks and on multiple websites which means that you have a powerful network of brokers working with us to find the perfect buyer.
We understand the importance of maintaining confidentiality, so information about your business is shared with potential buyers in stages only as their level of interest heightens. We disclose no confidential information without signed Confidentiality Agreements, and work toward full disclosure with either an Offer to Purchase or a Letter of Intent.
That’s not all; we use our banking contacts to assist the buyer to arrange financing. This includes traditional financing or SBA small business loans. By doing this, we can also help to minimize the amount of seller financing, if any.
