______________________________________________________________________________________________________ WHY SHOULD YOU USE THE SERVICES OF AN M&A ADVISOR?
During the course of any business life cycle, business owners can be faced with several compelling reasons that may lead them to consider the sale of their business. These can be categorized as:
√ Growth challenges – requiring additional business resources
√ Financial – the desire to access some of the retained business equity
√ Exit – the desire to exit the business for retirement or personal reasons
Whether it’s the need to leverage another company’s strengths in financial, human capital, marketing or managerial resources for growth, or perhaps the desire to access some of your firm’s retained equity, or simply the desire to exit the business, all require careful planning and consideration.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________ WHAT ARE SOME KEY CONSIDERATIONS FOR SELLERS?
As you consider the sale of any business, you must first develop a realistic understanding of a company’s market value within the given industry and marketplace. And you must also find out – discreetly – who are the potential and appropriate buyers or sellers within a given industry?
All this intelligence demands knowledgeable, professional and confidential expertise. As such, you need expert strategic and tactical assistance at this critical time so that the activities surrounding the sale of your business – or purchase of an existing business – won’t interfere with your day-to-day operations.
MergeQuest provides exactly that kind of expertise when you need it most. MergeQuest has a proven record of selling and buying businesses, while guiding and empowering business owners throughout the M&A process and bringing the transaction to satisfactory closure for all concerned parties. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ HOW DOES MERGEQUEST WORK?
Based on its over 30 years of M&A management experience, MergeQuest has developed a 10-step "Acquisition to Success" program which is designed to minimize the time and effort to identify and locate your best potential buyers or sellers.
After an in-depth exploration of your company’s financial and operational profile, as well as your specific personal and business goals, we will develop a program that will be tailored to your individual needs and objectives. It is our primary goal to develop a strategy that will fit your specific profile and criteria. This process will eliminate wasting time, effort and resources, and the exploration of incompatible prospects. Instead, together with you, we will help sharpen your focus on an approach and targets that offer the best chance for a successful transaction and appropriate fit.
