Through the Entire Sales Process

The process starts with a valuation. We have years of experience and use software to perform a detailed analysis of your business and provide you with a accurate valuation.

If you decide to move forward the next step is to complete a formal listing agreement that details the terms of our engagement.

We conduct an interview designed to highlight key selling points of your business. Then our team gets to work on the CIM (Confidential Information Memorandum). The CIM is designed to showcase your business and provide detailed information that buyer's will need to make an informed decision. We get a lot of complements on our CIM's.

Once the CIM is approved we are ready to list. Our marketing is optimized to target real buyers that are actively searching for a business. An NDA is required before any business specific information is shared. We take steps to ensure confidentiality.

Once serious buyers are identified we will coordinate introductions and tours. We are mindful of your time and careful about confidentiality.

When offers come in we thoroughly review and present them in a timely manner. We will keep you informed and advise you on all of your options so you can make the best possible decisions.

We will facilitate a professional negotiation, ensuring both the buyer and seller are aligned when we come to terms.

We will help coordinate an efficient, transparent, and orderly due diligence.

The buyer typically presents the purchase agreement 2-4 weeks after coming to terms on the LOI. We make a point to always read and provide feedback on the purchase agreement. It is essential that a qualified attorney reviews all legally binding agreements.

We help prepare and coordinate with all parties to make sure the closing goes smoothly. This is where the hard work pays off and the attention shifts to transitioning the buyer to continue operating the business successfully. This is the finish line!


Do You Have A Plan?

It All Starts With A Valuation

Do you know what your business is worth?

Even if you don’t currently plan on selling, running a business with a VALUE CREATION MINDSET allows you to focus your time and money on initiatives that will have a major impact on both the valuation and marketability of the business when it is time for an exit. A business that commands a higher value is inherently a more robust and efficient business. We can provide a current valuation and then advise you on specific actions that can be taken to increase your company’s value. We have helped business owners add significant value to their businesses, resulting in faster transactions and higher sales prices.
