Mergers and Acquisitions

There are over twelve million privately held businesses in the USA and Canada. Most of them are too small for us to bother with. A small fraction are too big for us and are the exclusive domain of the largest investment banks in the country. That leaves over 700,000 companies that fit our parameters. 

Our typical client is someone who has built a successful company and now wants to sell all or part of it and either slow doen or completely retire. At any given time, over half of the owners at companies on the list below are willing to entertain an offer or actively pursuing an exit. With over 700,000 companies in this pool, there is an inexhaustible supply of business.
