Our sell-side advisory services support middle-market business owners as they evaluate a sale of their business or assets to private equity or strategic acquirers. We are experts in preparing and positioning companies for this process, often resulting in closing prices above initial projections. With each sell-side assignment, we spend a substantial amount of time upfront analyzing our client’s business. Through this work, we gain intimate knowledge that allows us optimally to position the business for sale and with the goal of exceeding our clients’ expectations.
Our services include evaluating and recommending financial and strategic alternatives with respect to a sale, advising on the appropriate process, valuation, and timing, and preparing collateral materials. Bruderman also assists with alternative liquidation strategies, including leveraged and unleveraged ESOP plans. Most importantly, we collaborate with our clients to identify, contact, and select the most qualified buyers while also assisting in negotiating and closing the sale.
