M&A Transaction Advisory Services
While most of our M&A projects are full-scope business sale engagements, Exit Strategies also helps clients with:
Strategic Acquisitions / Outsourced Corporate Development
We can develop and implement your merger or acquisition strategy and accelerate transactions. We can conduct industry research, identify and contact target companies, evaluate responsive targets, make offers and negotiate, provide business valuations, organize due diligence, arrange financing, manage the project, facilitate closings and advise on post-closing business integration.
Management Buy Outs
Exit Strategies 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 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.
Independent Business Valuation
You may be selling the business on your own, or countering an offer and the buyer asks, “How did you come up with that price?” You could just say, “I multiplied my bottom line by X.” How will they respond? Will they respond? Or, how might they respond to the answer, “Independent business valuation experts Exit Strategies appraised my business. Here’s their report!”
À la carte Transaction Advisory Services
You may need help with specific aspects of a sale, merger or acquisition transaction. À la carte services include a third-party business valuation as part of due diligence, creating an offering memorandum, conducting research, marketing, making buyer introductions, candidate screening, obtaining acquisition financing, negotiating and deal structuring, managing the due diligence process, and general project management. Exit Strategies does not provide accounting, tax or legal advice.
Distressed Business Sales
When a company is cash-strapped or whenever an immediate sale is required, Exit Strategies can run a strategic sale process that maximizes selling price and cash to the shareholders in a known and accelerated time frame—typically 90-120 days. We move quickly to compile and summarize essential information, calm stakeholders, locate and contact strategic buyers, run an auction, and orchestrate the due diligence and closing process.
Exit Strategies can find the right debt and/or equity partner to finance your merger or acquisition.
Call us for a confidential discussion about your sale, merger or acquisition transaction circumstances. If we can help, we’ll propose a service and compensation program that works best for you.
