Transaction Motivation (Step one).
Based on twenty years of transaction experience, confirming ownership’s commitment to the transaction process (buying or selling assets) is the first step. As you might expect, buying or selling assets is a demanding process and will fail if ownership is not committed to investing the necessary time, capital, and staff to complete the process.
Transaction Preparation (Step two recommendations).
If you’re a buyer, a detailed review of regional competition, culture, products, sales team, facilities, managers, operating margins, working capital, and expansion capital is required.
If you’re a seller, a detailed review of gross sales, customer concentration, profitability, tax returns, balance sheet, equipment, regional competition,shareholders, past litigation, and working capital is required.
Transaction Process (Step three recommendations).
In general, locating a strategic seller or qualified buyer will take 400 to 600 hours of focused effort. The process includes preparation, prospecting, first meetings/site tours, letter of intent, due diligence, purchase offer, offer acceptance, payment process and asset transfer.
Buy-side transaction management (asset). The transaction centers on a long-term expansion strategy to increase operating margins, services, products, new sales team, and serving new cities.
Sell-side transaction management (asset). The majority of companies sell to regional or national competitors. If seller EBITDA is greater than $ 2.0 million (TTM), the company may qualify for private equity investment or joint venture opportunities. This type of investor will pay a premium if the operating company meets acquisition objectives.
