Since 1979, six unique challenges have surfaced with enough regularity to place them on our Merger and Acquisition radar screen. The challenges and solutions are listed below.

Challenge One – Understanding the M&A Client

Solution – We Provide:

  • An informed, experienced and professional intermediary.
  • A full understanding of the client company, including the potential for growth or multiplication (franchising opportunity).
  • An accurate response to acquisition criteria; i.e.; price, location, size, type, etc.
  • A sense of urgency; aggressively searching for the best solution to the M & A client’s needs.

Challenge Two – No Surprises

  • Our standard of providing an accurate and precise target business profile is the best insurance policy when it comes to satisfying the M & A client.
