We Help Business Owners in Selling and Buyers in Acquiring
Selling or buying a business is one of the most important financial decisions you will make. At TMV Business Group we represent both Buyers and Sellers.
For The Buyer
Business Identification and Pre-Qualification – We actively search on your behalf to identify businesses in specific sectors or industries that match your search criteria.
Business Acquisition Negotiations – Often your acquisition target will have already engaged a business broker and having experienced representation on your side as well will level the playing field.
Business Acquisition Financing – We have access to a variety of funding sources and may be able to help you obtain financing for your next acquisition.
Documentation and Due Diligence – TMV Business Group will work with your legal and financial professionals to conduct sufficient due diligence, ensuring that all potential risks are identified and accounted for in the offer.
Closing the Deal – Many people think that once the Purchase Agreement is signed the deal is done, but our experience tells us that it is far from over at that point. We will coordinate closing activities to ensure that all due diligence items have been addressed and the groundwork has been established for a smooth transfer of ownership.
For The Seller
Prepare Your Business For Sale – We help prepare the business for sale which allows the business owner to continue to focus on running their business while it is up for sale. Do not underestimate the importance of this function.
Maintain Confidentiality – When selling your business, confidentiality is vital. Your company can lose credibility if word gets out about the sale to customers, employees, suppliers and competitors. Preserving your confidentiality is a priority for us.
Attract Buyers – We know how to market a business. It is not just a matter of putting up a listing online. There are buyer databases, potential strategic buyers, and proven industry avenues that we can access to pursue prospective buyers.
Screen Prospects – We are able to sift through inquiries and identify qualified prospects. Doing so allows us to conduct the important initial dialogue with buyers so that the you only meets with potential buyers who understand the business and are able to execute a transaction.
Negotiating – We are able to mediate discussions between you and qualified buyers. As an objective third party, we are a much-needed buffer between the parties and are able to negotiate on your behalf, saving time and stress.
