When it comes time to sell your company, mid-market companies have unique considerations outside of what a smaller business would need. As mergers and acquisitions intermediaries, we have the expertise needed for these complex transactions, which a typical business broker is often not equipped to handle. When you’re searching for a partner that you can trust with the sale of your business, turn to Calder Associates.
Achieve Your Goals
At Calder, we will assess your situation and help you determine the most beneficial solution to achieve the objectives that you have in mind when you decide to sell your company.
- Buyout – This is a complete sale of all of your company’s assets, including any shareholder stock or member interests.
- Recapitalization – This is a partial sale of your company’s equity, which may be either a minority or a majority. Business owners may choose this option to realize a liquidation event or to be able to further invest in their company. In this type of sale, there will be equity participation in surviving entities.
We have an intimate understanding of the decision you’re facing. You’re not just selling your company—you’re selling your reputation, the excellence of your management team and employees, and even the potential for future opportunities that your company may achieve.
Calder Associates has been assisting mid-market companies with selling their businesses since 2002. Our proprietary M&A process is designed to help you maximize the value of your business and increase the likelihood of making the sale. Our experts are highly trained, and many have additional certifications, such as a Mergers and Acquisitions Master Intermediary and securities licenses. Few other firms can match this level of expertise.
We provide all of the following services and more for anyone looking to sell their company:
- Corporate assessment
- Industry and competitive analysis
- Document preparation and review
- Location and/or assessment of buyers
- Negotiation and development of letters of intent or indications of interest
- Procurement of required counsel, including any of the following professionals:
- Commercial Attorney
- Accountant (CPA)
- Financial Planner
For each sale, we perform extensive “pre-diligence” that includes a review of your company records and operations. Not only will we make suggestions for immediate improvements, but we do our utmost to fully prepare you for rigorous due diligence. This comprehensive level of preparation is something that business brokers and the majority of mergers and acquisitions firms in New Jersey and elsewhere throughout PA, MD, and DC (and the rest of Calder’s service area, which extends throughout the US and Canada) do not do—and it can make the difference between whether a transaction is completed or not.
Are You Ready to Sell Your Company?
Before deciding to move forward with selling your company, you probably asked yourself, “What is the value of my business?” We provide accurate, fair market valuations of your business so that you know exactly what to expect when it comes time to sell.
If you’ve decided that you’re ready to sell, Calder will act as your trusted partner. Our streamlined process is designed to help you sell your business at its optimum value. We carry out each transaction with integrity, and we will only partner with you if we think it’s in your best interest.
Even if you’re not ready to sell just yet, we can help you arrive at that point by offering advice on how to maximize your sales and profitability.
Increase the Value of Your Business
