Tap into proven exit strategies that have worked for companies worth $1M, $10M, $75M, and even north of $100M. This is the most important transaction of your life - don't leave it to chance.
Our team calculates your company's valuation using multiple methods, cherry-picking the best approach to use for your exit. This includes Discounted Cash Flow (DCF), Revenue & Profit Multipliers, Net Present Value, and others. This is a free service to qualified companies because we believe you should never have to pay for a valuation.
M&A firms and brokers only focus on selling your company, which is only part of the equation. From the start we look at tax implications, structural engineering, and financial approaches to maximize the most important part of the transaction - the after-tax number that you, the owner, gets upon the sale of the business. Many business owners leave millions of dollars on the table by skipping this critical step - don't be one of them.
We conduct a global search for strategic buyers for all exit events. While other firms simply rely on their rolodex of contacts, we understand your business is unique and that it deserves a thorough global vetting of potential buyers coupled with a tireless attention to all the important details. Our goal is to find between 50 and 150 potential buyers in our search and narrow that list down to serious buyers.
The most important part of the transaction is how masterfully it's negotiated. Our team has taught classes on corporate negotiations, sales negotiations, and contract negotiations for companies like Computer Sciences Corporation and Accenture. We understand how to position your company for the best possible exit - whether it's a $1M transaction or a $100M transaction. This process alone can improve a valuation by 10% to 40%.
Our team understands the typical - and often random - objections that can surface during the sale of a business. Often times owners can address questions during the due diligence process and unknowingly hurt their valuation. We help owners proactively navigate these land mines and make the due diligence process smooth.
We have a proprietary process for creating a bidding war for businesses in specific industries that are in demand. This technique alone can boost the sale price by 30% to 50%, if not more. Leveraging this very powerful technique can add millions to an owner's pocket.
We create a custom-tailored campaign to sell your business to a global network of strategic buyers. Most brokers or M&A firms rely on a stale list of contacts to find financial buyers of companies. This technique only works 12% of the time. We use unique, powerful techniques to sell your business for its peak value and negotiate the deal, from start to finish.
