Investment Bankers to the Middle Market

Selling a Business

During the life of nearly every business owner, there comes a point when one contemplates selling all or part of the company. For some owners, the decision to sell a business and transfer the risks and responsibilities to someone else is the clear choice. For others, the decision to sell may not be so cut and dry. It may make more sense to seek a financial partner who really understands the industry and the business opportunities a recapitalization would bring. It may be time to sell only a division, subsidiary or product line in order to improve the long term prospects for a company. 

For most business owners a sale, merger, or recapitalization is unfamiliar territory and going it alone may not be the smartest choice.

For over fifty years, we've been helping business owners maximize their company's value. Our commitment to remaining independent from direct lending sources or investment capital affiliates ensures that we deliver unbiased guidance and helps to increase competition among potential buyers.
