Buying a Business

Business Purchase Consultants

An M&A transaction is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and your regular CPA and attorney are most likely not well-versed in this complex transaction. You need an experienced, dedicated team to help you negotiate and close the deal. At BiggsKofford, our M&A consultants specialize in helping you navigate the process from start to finish. Let us help to ensure a smooth transaction and put you on the path to success with:

    • Seller representation and brokerage. From finding buyers and negotiating the transaction through the closing process, our firm’s customized approach maximizes your interests.
    • Value negotiations to achieve a fair and comprehensive valuation that reflects market conditions in both price and terms.
    • Owner transition strategies and consulting. For owners looking to transfer ownership to family members, partners or employees, our experts guide you through that process to ensure a smooth transition.
    • Buyer acquisition assistance to make sure all of your bases are covered with due diligence, finance sourcing and negotiation for a successful acquisition.
    • Merger consulting that provides a seamless transaction for owners and staff by merging the best of both operations with careful planning and execution.
    • Source capital and debt restructure to get you the financing you need to achieve your goals.
