Seller Advisory

McCombie Group provides middle-market business owners with unbiased and straightforward Merger and Acquisitions (M&A) advice and representation.  

Selling a business nearly always results in a “financial marriage” between buyer and seller for a period of time. Consequently, our approach is based upon empowering you to find the best fit amongst the various suitors and then creatively negotiating a fair price and structure for everyone involved.  Over time, we have negotiated with hundreds of investors and private equity firms focused specifically on the middle market.  

Selling is also one of the most time-consuming and emotionally challenging experiences a business owner will undergo, so it is important to choose an advisor who gives your transaction the attention it deserves. We begin by listening to fully understand your specific personal and professional goals and to understand the underlying fundamentals of your business, in order to tailor a personalized strategy. Our team proactively handles all of the details, so you can fully focus on leading your business during this critical process:

  • Advising and patiently educating you about the sales process, expected valuation range, and market terms for the business
  • Identifying and prioritizing potential buyers
  • Compiling and organizing financial data and creating any and all requested documentation
  • Managing buyer communications
  • Preparing marketing materials and detailed financial models
  • Facilitating the due diligence process
  • Evaluating and recommending the best offer based upon your unique objectives
  • Negotiating the final price and terms of the transaction
