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 confidence and peace of mind as you move forward.
We thoroughly address the details with you to structure a successful transaction—and a healthy transition.
If you’re considering a transaction, we can help you…
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.
Assess Business Value Drivers
We’ll help you identify and evaluate strategies to prepare your organization, maximize enterprise value, and capitalize on a transaction.
Whether you plan to sell your business or retain it for the next generation, we’ll help you assess organizational structure and reduce business risk to 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 deal 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.
Complete Pre-Sale Due Diligence
We’ll help you evaluate your company’s readiness and address issues that impact enterprise value.
Allocate Purchase Price
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.
