As a business owner interested in selling for maximum return, you should consider a Private Equity (PE) transaction. PE firms have made a very serious push into the M&A space over the last few years. This could be to your advantage.
A few reasons we love PE deals:
1. Higher valuation multiples than strategic buyers
2. PE partners assess and close transactions more quickly than a traditional buyer
3. They have deep pockets and invest in growing your Company via organic and acquisitive means
4. You can close on much larger acquisitions allowing scale to be more readily achieved
5. PE firms prefer your team to continue to operate the business on a day-to-day basis
6. You will have a sophisticated strategic partner with skill sets not typically found internally
7. Company name and culture will be maintained
Please reach out to us if you would like further information on PE deals.
