Our Merger and Acquisition services are designed to provide you with confidential, professional and industry-experienced M&A advice and guidance in concert with a customized and personalized selling experience, one that delivers your desired results at a reasonable cost. _____________________________________________________________________
We accomplish this by following 6 simple guiding principles:
1. You receive the personal, fully-devoted attention of our Principal.
MergeQuest’s principal, Steve Sorrentino, personally handles your relationship with us during the sale of your business.You will never be relegated to a junior associate as with many other M&A firms.Steve’s expertise is supported by his distinguished professional career in senior financial management for over 25 years, coupled with his diverse, hands-on experience as a former executive within the Staffing Services Industry and as a professional M&A Advisor. See Steve’s biography.
2. We tailor our representation and consulting engagement to your specific needs, requirements and objectives.
Our focus centers on your goals and objectives, which drives us to fully understand your business along with the challenges that face you in today’s dynamic business environment. By thoroughly understanding you, your business and your objectives, we are far better equipped to find an appropriate match for you amidst a host of prospective buyers or business partners - thereby enabling us to find the right transaction for you and the right cultural "fit".
3. We educate you about the value of your business, about the process of selling your business and about the buyers who are interested in acquiring your business.
The essence of our service and value is centered around our expertise, our knowledge and our skill derived from years of experience providing M&A services to our clients. When it comes to M&A, we "know the ropes." And that is why during our engagement, from market value assessment to introductions to negotiations through closure, you can depend on us to keep you well informed about your firm's value, the selling process, buyer profiles, our negotiation status and progress - while keeping you free from surprises.
4. We negotiate with buyers as if we owned your business – with the clear objective of orchestrating the optimal transaction for you.
Since we are specialists in the M&A process, we understand the vast array of decisions facing you and your business during this transition. Our many years of experience helping business owners during this time provides us with a keenly sensitive and empathetic understanding of your concerns. Our goal is to guide and support you - while orchestratating the optimal transaction for you - which means obtaining the maximum value for your business with the most appropriate buyer.
5. We empower you, so you are always in control of our engagement direction and pace.
Trust is built upon confidence, reliance and faith – fundamentals that we strive to maintain and cultivate by working closely with you, your financial, legal and other business advisors. Rest assured, that we will be at your side during each stage in full support of your concerns and that YOU will maintain control over the pace and direction of our engagement and will ultimately make the decisions that drive the process.
6. We maintain strict CONFIDENTIALITY and discretion in everything we do.
We start by not using the MergeQuest name when communicating with you. We fully understand and appreciate the need to maintain the highest level of confidentiality during our engagement - it's just the nature of the service we provide and the nature of our relationships with our clients. So fear not, we are experts in providing "stealth" service - where our objective is to shield your employees, clients, vendors and competitors from the activities surrounding the sale of your business - until you decide when and how to disclose this information.
