Our Services

Selling A Business

If you are thinking about selling your business, we can help you. Our initial consultation involves a discussion on the process of selling a business from your perspective and a buyers perspective, your specific goals and objectives, and the timing of selling a business.

We further progress into an assessment of the market potential of your business, a detailed range of value appraisal of your business, a market trends analysis, and a review of value creation opportunities that we could leverage prior to the sale.

Once we engage, prepare the marketing documents and launch a well crafted marketing campaign, we then solicit offers and negotiate a price and transaction structure that works for both parties, manage the due diligence process, finalize the contracts and closing documents, and complete the post closing and transition activities.

Valuing A Business

As part of our initial consultation, we provide a preliminary range of value business appraisal that gives a business owner a good prospective of the value of their business.

For those privately-held business owners who require a certified valuation, we offer limited and full independent, third-party business appraisals. We provide appraisal services for business valuations, buy-sell agreements, estate planning, exit/succession planning, allocation of purchase price, loan valuations, minority buyouts, partnership dissolution, recapitalizations and more.

Advising Owners

Many of our clients are not prepared or staffed with the resources to effectively create value in their businesses prior to the sale or to prepare an effective exit strategy. We prefer getting involved early in the process with our clients, offering strategic advice and professional resources, and helping them establish and achieve their goals. We maintain a network of professional advisors who provide our clients with business development strategies, sales and marketing programs, strategic and tactical exit and succession planning, wealth management needs analysis, deferred compensation plans, and sound M&A legal advice.

There are often many opportunities to increase the value of a business prior to a sale. As part of our initial business assessment, we look for hidden values and opportunities that enhance and create value, and can be sustained and transferred to the buyer. Getting involved early in the process gives us the best opportunity to find, create and increase the value of a business.

Every business owner will eventually leave their company, and doing so effectively and profitably depends on the specific exit planning actions taken before you leave.
