Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) is a critical part of today’s business environment. M&A can be seen as a way to grow a business in a new geographic area, or add new product lines or customers. It can also be a way to cash out of your business, by selling to a professional buyer or becoming a division of a much larger company to gain capital to see your expansion dreams fulfilled.
Your VR professional will review your situation and objectives and provide you the market savvy advice you need to get things done. A review can be made for strategic buyers and buying entities such as private equity groups. Many of these potential buyers are not affected in the same way as mainstreet buyers by the lack or availability of traditional financing, which may open new doors in the sale of your business.
Because M&A transactions take more time and skill than mainstreet transactions, you’ll want to spend some time getting to know your VR professional and discussing your situation in detail, and your objectives. Your VR professional can provide valuable guidance and counsel regarding market conditions, financing, buyers and transaction mechanics.
When considering M&A for mid-market companies with between $1 million and $20 million in sales, you’ll want to speak with your VR professional.
