Company Sales & Divestitures

If you decide to sell your company, it’s critical to have an experienced advisor assist you. We specialize in guiding companies through complex financial and strategic sales issues, from first contact to closing. 

Our disciplined approach includes:

  • Analysis of the company and its industry
  • In-depth financial evaluation to identify the company’s value drivers
  • Carefully planned marketing designed to generate multiple buyers while maintaining confidentiality
  • Expertise in structuring and negotiating transactions
  • Assistance with due diligence and the closing process

Debt & Equity Recapitalization

A recapitalization transaction can be attractive to owners who wish to sell an equity stake in their business while retaining some ownership and operating control or those who seek additional capital to accelerate growth.

This helps an owner:

  • Sell a majority or minority stake to a financial partner and retain an equity stake
  • Identify improvements or changes to potentially increase market value
  • Diversify personal wealth by investing proceeds of the sale while continuing to lead and grow the company
  • Mitigate exposure to financial risks and liabilities of ownership
  • Benefit from the company’s growth and profitability
  • Gain a strong, experienced financial partner to help chart and finance the strategic path for your business
