M&A Transaction Advisory Services
Most clients come to Exit Strategies Group for a full-service business sale engagement, but we also helps clients with:
Strategic Acquisitions / Outsourced Corporate Development
We can accelerate your strategy to grow by acquisition. Most private companies don’t need a full time corporate development staff — they can cost-effectively outsource this work to Exit Strategies Group on a project basis. See our Buy-Side Services page.
Management Buy Outs
Exit Strategies Group guides owners and management through the entire MBO process. Services include business valuation, feasibility analysis, negotiations, structuring deals that align shareholder and management incentives, sourcing capital, and general project management.
Exit Strategies Group can help you diversify your assets, achieve partial liquidity and facilitate corporate growth by selling a majority or minority interest in your business, while you stay involved and participate in the increased value of retained shares until you are ready to exit completely. See Recapitalization Strategy.
Independent Business Valuation
Owners selling or buying a business on their own often need valuation support. An independent business valuation from Exit Strategies Group can give you a new basis for negotiations, validate a price, persuade other shareholders to go along, or save you from making a big mistake.
Exit Strategies Group can introduce or find the right debt and/or equity partner to fund your sale, merger or acquisition.
Limited Transaction Consulting
You may want help with other limited aspects of a transaction. Our other á la carte services include creating an offering memorandum, conducting market research, candidate screening, letter of intent negotiation and deal structuring support, due diligence and project management support. Exit Strategies Group does not provide accounting, tax or legal advice.
Distressed Business Sales
When an immediate sale is required for financial or other reasons, Exit Strategies Group can run a strategic sale process that maximizes price and cash to the shareholders in a specified accelerated time frame—typically 90-120 days. We move quickly to compile essential information, secure stakeholder support, notify strategic buyers, obtain offers, strike a deal and orchestrate due diligence and closing—a process we perfected during the Great Recession.
Call us for a confidential discussion about your sale, merger or acquisition transaction needs. If we can help, we’ll propose a service and compensation program that makes sense for you.
