Resources For Sellers

Selling your business may be one of the most important things you do in your lifetime and may seem like a daunting task. It’s essential to have an accurate value placed on your company to find the right seller. In addition, you’ll want a partner who can stay on top of the complex legal and accounting issues, negotiate on your behalf, and arrange a timely closing. Visit our seller library for resources on finding selling your business at the best possible price.

Resources for Buyers

Building a business through acquisitions requires in-depth knowledge, formulation of strategic plans, identification of potential targets, conduction of due diligence, and negotiation of acceptable terms. The best “deal” for an acquisition is not measured in multiples but rather what the purchase will be worth in five to seven years. Visit our buyside library for resources on identifying and structuring acquisitions.

Obtaining Financing

Obtaining financing is an important step in growing or purchasing a business. There are many options available to sort through. Visit our financing library for resources on how to obtain financing, whether through a bank, private equity, venture capital, or angel investing.
