Helping Business Owners Realize Value
To paraphrase a humorous remark about exercise attributed to Mark Twain, when you feel like selling your company, lie down until the urge passes.
We’re half-joking, of course, but only half. If you’re a middle market business owner, selling your company can be one of the most important decisions of your career. Before we encourage any of our clients to pull the trigger, we work with them to evaluate the following issues in a structured process:
Sometimes, an immediate sale is not the best approach for achieving our client’s objectives. In these cases, we work with a business owner over time to prepare for a sales process that could occur 12 to 36 months later. Using our industry knowledge and skills as business owners and operators ourselves, we help clients restructure their management teams to address weaknesses, reduce costs to improve earnings, and streamline balance sheets to generate additional cash proceeds for our clients before a sale occurs.
