Once you find a buyer for your business, you want the transaction to close as quickly as possible. You never want to be the reason for any delay.
In our many years of experience in acquiring companies, we faced extreme frustration working with business owners through the arduous due diligence process.
They were rarely prepared for the scrutiny and there were times it took so long for a company to get its documentation together, we ended up walking away.
Someone interested in acquiring your business is probably looking at other opportunities. The better prepared you are the better your chance of being the one selected.
We can help you to be prepared for the process, particularly due diligence which is where most deals fall apart.
We could give numerous examples! In fact, in our workshops we examine many applicable case studies and anecdotes.
Here's one example that ended up being good for us, but not for the seller:
In summer 2001, we were positioned to acquire a company, but closing was delayed due to the seller not getting documents back to us in a timely manner.
Then 9-11 came. The closing was pushed back by several months, during which time the seller's business plummeted.
When the acquisition finally closed, it was at a lower price and with terms less favorable to the seller.
Our team has extensive first-hand personal experience in acquiring companies. We have personally conducted due diligence on numerous companies - both those we ended up acquiring as well as the ones that did not close.
We have acquired companies when operating both private and publicly held corporations, for both strategic and financial purposes.
Our experience extends over a broad spectrum of industries. We have done asset-only acquisitions as well as stock purchase deals on businesses with revenues ranging from less than $1,000,000 to $25 million.
Any and all information provided to us is kept strictly confidential. With our remote workshop we can work within your schedule to allow you to be discrete.

Since there are numerous factors that can come into play when selling a business, it would be impossible for us to provide any guarantee.
However, there is no doubt that you will be better prepared to sell your company, or have your company better positioned to potentially obtain financing if it doesn't sell.
