IG2’s M&A approach is to provide business owners with independent, skilled, professional representation by individuals that are experienced as entrepreneurs, business owners, and deal professionals. IG2 focuses on maximizing the unique and special value inherent in your business. We invest the time to get to know you and your business, which serves two purposes: to capitalize on your strengths and neutralize any challenges in advance of the sale process; and to make selling your business a personally and financially rewarding experience.
The Sale Process
A successful transaction requires careful planning, consideration, and analysis of the most current market conditions in order to create, execute and, often, adapt the sales strategy while in deal mode. IG2’s process includes:
- Identifying Owners’ Objectives
- Company Prep Work
- Engaging Potential Buyers
- Preparing Offering Memorandum
- Maximizing Offers
- Helping Owners Select Best Offer
- Letter of Intent
- Due Diligence
- Purchase Agreement
While each step in the M&A process is important, perhaps the most critical and most overlooked is the finish. Well after the price is set in the letter of intent, the details of the purchase agreement and the moving parts involved in due diligence and transition will ultimately determine both the legacy of your business and the number of dollars that land in your pocket. Having gone through this process with our own businesses and with our clients, we understand the threats to your sales outcome. We will be there with you throughout the entire process to provide you with the most advantageous exit possible.
