M&A Sell-Side Transition Planning

Whether your goal is to fund retirement, monetize an investment, or redeploy capital in a higher-growth area, you have a lot to consider when considering a sale. However, time might not be on your side, which is why you need to take the right steps to eliminate risks that could delay or detail a sale. Our experienced transaction services professionals can guide you through the unfamiliar territory of planning, preparation, and pre-transaction optimization to help you maximize value and ensure success.

Business Preparedness and Sell-Side Due Diligence

Through our multi-phased approach, we maximize value by aligning your goals with appropriate buyer types and highlight key drivers those buyers find most important. We identify potential financial or tax issues that could be resolved prior to buyer diligence or recommend ways to position issues in the best possible manner. We present you and your advisors with an objective view of potential deal breakers or purchase price adjustments.
