Valued Representation when Acquiring an Enterprise Valued at Over
$1 million

The perception of the business public is that Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) are practiced by investment bankers serving multibillion dollar public companies. Most M&A transactions involve smaller privately held enterprises. The majority of U.S. transactions are less than $50 million; fact most are under $20 million. Most M&A transactions involve privately held companies, which dominate the business population, and are estimated to be over 98 percent of all businesses in the United States.

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service receives tax returns from four basic categories: individuals, sole proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations. Adding together every category except individuals (in other words, all the business entities, however defined) gives us approximately 25 million entities generating business income. The most dominant type of company is the sole proprietorship, followed by corporations (of which only 15,000 are publicly traded) and partnerships. Even if we subtract half the sold proprietorships to exclude the smallest tier - self-employed individuals and the like - we still have a good 15 million to consider. And among these 15 million are 300,000 private American businesses with revenues over $5 million - including more than 45,000 private American businesses with revenues over $25 million.
