Buying or selling a business? Do it with confidence.
There’s no denying it. Buying or selling a business is a big deal. It’s financially complex and emotionally challenging—and there’s a lot on the line.
Our transaction advisory services (TAS) group can help you make sense of the process and give you peace of mind as you move forward. We’ll help you structure a successful transaction—and a healthy transition.
Considering a transaction?
Let's tackle the details together
Identify Requirements and Expectations
Preparing you for a life-changing business transaction is as important as preparing the business itself. We’ll help you define your financial requirements, identify the ideal transaction type and characteristics, and determine an optimal post-transaction relationship.
Complete Pre-Sale Due Diligence
We’ll help you evaluate your company’s readiness and address issues that impact enterprise value.
Assess Business Value Drivers
We’ll help you identify and evaluate strategies to prepare your company to maximize enterprise value and capitalize on the transaction.
Whether you plan to sell your business or retain it for the next generation, we’ll help you assess the organization to reduce business risk and boost enterprise value.
Analyze Transaction Value
We can help you calculate transaction value based on deal type, capital structure, cash flows, and risk profile to define the ultimate sale structure for your transaction.
Align and Retain Employees
Retaining key employees before and after your transaction drives value and expands the buyer pool. We’ll proactively identify and evaluate strategies to align employees with owners for a win-win solution.
Purchase Price Allocation
Allocating sale proceeds is as much an art as it is a science. We’ll help you allocate the purchase price among assets, stock, goodwill, and more to minimize taxes and risk while maximizing results—the perfect blend of meeting financial goals and protecting wealth.
