Your goal

I’m ready to sell my business and it seems like there’s a lot to consider. This business has been my life so there are also emotions involved. I want to stay as objective as I can; and I know it’s the right time…. but where to start? What do I need to do to prepare myself and my team? How do I determine a fair value of my business? What type of interest can I expect from prospective buyers?

How we can help

When your business is your life (or at least a huge part of it), we understand that it’s a big event when you decide to hand over the reins of your operation to someone new. Selling a business isn’t an overnight process, in some cases, it can actually take years to implement fully. Given the scope of the task, you’ll need trusted advisors who are in it with you for the long haul; ones who can anticipate and understand the emotional challenges and financial hurdles ahead.

We’ve been helping owners successfully sell their businesses for decades. The trust our clients place in us is rooted in the genuine, caring and personalized approach we apply to every unique situation.

We’ll help you identify potential buyers, prepare the information memorandum, make initial contact on your behalf, and execute the selection process.  We also perform reverse/seller due diligence to help you prepare for a sale. Our process prevents unanticipated surprises during buyer due diligence. When it comes time to negotiate, we handle it in a way that ensures you get maximum value and the best terms possible.

Your business is personal. Work with seasoned advisors who have seen it all before, and will have your best interests at heart.
