One of the biggest financial decisions you will make as a successful business owner is selling your company. Unfortunately, once the transaction is complete, redos and take backs are out of the question, which is why it’s best to do it right — the first time. The process of selling your company requires much time and effort, and utilizing the proper tools and resources will yield optimal results. The best way to capitalize on this opportunity is by hiring an M&A firm, or mergers and acquisitions, to handle all the nitty-gritty work.
At Ashley Capital Group, our team of advisors assists successful business owners who wish to sell their company. Getting professional assistance to help you through this difficult sales process will not only help maximize the valuation of your company, but will also provide guidance and structure throughout the duration of the deal.
What are Mergers & Acquisitions?
M&A firms specialize in business transactions. Mergers are when two companies become one, while acquisitions are when one company takes over another.
Here are 3 reasons to hire us to help navigate the sale of your beloved company:
Maximize Return on Investment
More often than not, business owners looking to sell their company will turn to friends, relatives, and acquaintances for assistance in finding a potential buyer. While getting a couple offers sounds great, you’re limiting your company and not taking advantage of the expansive list of buyers that M&A firms have access to. In addition, you are not exposing your company to the possibility of a higher return. Maximizing your return on investment is reason enough to use a professional M&A firm.
The Safety Net
Your business venture led to a successful and profitable company that is now on the market for sale. Your expertise lies in entrepreneurship; however, the complexities of selling a company involve many avenues that can be too much for one person. Key components of an M&A transaction involves accountants and lawyers. During the due diligence process, buyers might try to renegotiate the purchase price. Rather than starting back at square one, an M&A firm will contact prospective buyers that had previously shown interest in the company, saving you a significant amount of time and money.
Your Focus Should be on Your Business
Your business might be your largest financial asset; therefore, allowing an experienced advisor to manage the M&A transaction will take the majority of the responsibility off your hands. The M&A advisor will be a liaison between you and the buyer, allowing you to direct time towards maintaining the success of your business. While your business is on the market, it is essential to continue to produce revenue by hiring amiable and inventive employees and implementing growth strategies. A decrease in revenue can significantly reduce the purchase price, or even result in a failed transaction. Hiring an M&A advisor will allow you to focus on your business and increase the chance of a higher ROI. Sales is a competitive industry that requires confidence, resilience, and hunger — all of which the advisors here at Ashley Capital Group have. Our M&A firm will curate a successful and profitable exit strategy for middle market business owners.
