to Selling a Business
Selling a business can be a daunting task even
for the most experienced owner and investor. Yet, this task is
critical to achieving personal and return on investment goals.
Our thorough approach to evaluating and marketing mid-cap businesses
has enabled our clients across all industries to sell their businesses
for the highest value. We assist our clients throughout the entire
selling process. First, we prepare a business valuation to establish
the company's range of value to determine whether or not selling
your business at this time will achieve your objectives. Our team
of M&A specialists, researchers and dealmakers helps our clients
prepare for the future through a variety of services such as:
your company's financial statements and developing projections
that demonstrate the company's true market potential.
professional opinion of your company's market value which establishes
a baseline for evaluating offers.
assessment of where your business stands in the current market
and how to find the best buyer.
on growth strategies, exit strategies and deal structures that
can increase sale price and after-tax proceeds.
Once an exit plan has been developed, the business
is ready to be introduced to the market. BTI Group uses a systematic
and proven approach to bring companies to the market effectively.
