Mergers + Acquisitions
Should you sell? When? How? And for how much? For a business owner, mergers and acquisitions are always difficult and highly personal decisions. RRBB understands your needs and concerns. We’ve been intimately involved with the day-to-day operations of both small, family-owned organizations and large, international corporations.
Mergers and acquisitions involve more than bringing together buyer and seller. There are tax planning considerations, business valuation needs, financial reporting aspects, and family and estate planning issues involved in the sale of a business.
More than Buyer/Seller Introductions
At the heart of RRBB lies a knowledgeable and competent tax department, with tax specialists trained to be proactive and analytical while always keeping your “big picture” and overall needs in mind. We have the financial background and expertise to deal with complex business situations, while remaining sensitive to the human aspects of the planning process. Our staff is also accredited in Business Valuation and able to assist you with a business valuation for any number of circumstances.
We can manage the entire sales process. In the planning stage, we can advise you on enhancing the attractiveness of the business. Later, we can walk you through the formal sales process, which includes preparing a confidential memorandum, identifying prospective purchasers, valuation of the business, structuring the transaction, negotiation of terms and price and coordination of the closing process. All with your desires and best interests in mind at all times.
Maximize the Value of Your Business
Giving good businesses away is easy, getting their true worth is difficult, but getting a premium price for a business requires skills that business owners can learn. However, not learning them can be the most expensive lesson of their lives. Here are a couple things we suggest business owners think about prior to make that difficult decision to sell:
- What a buyer is looking for in a business
- Preparing a business for sale
- Recasting the financials
- Valuing the business
- Cutting to the chase
