Selling Your Business- Customized For You

​Selling your business is a big decision.  We always start with the ‘why’.  The ‘why’ helps us to focus on the outcome you want and to tailor our work for your industry, your business, and most importantly – you.

​We work with lower middle market companies with EBITDA greater than $1M annually. With our proprietary, PrepCheck, DealPlaybook, and DealGPS we’ll guide you through your options.

Our transaction sizes range from $5M-$100M.  If you’ve already been approached to sell, don’t move forward without speaking to us first.

each journey begins with one step

Exit Planning – Building Transferable Value

Most owners assume they will eventually sell their business. But how many businesses for sale actually sell?  The statistics aren’t pretty. How will you differentiate from the 350,000 other businesses that will be for sale over the next 10 years?

By building a transferable business now.  

Exit Planning is about understanding where additional value can be derived in your business while simultaneously de-risking what is likely your largest investment.

Together we can align your personal, business, and financial goals into an actionable plan to put you in control.
