Mergers and Acquisitions
Ascott Group offers a unique service to small business owners who have decided to sell their companies. With more than 25 years of industry relationships, our Mergers and Acquisitions department can prepare a formal marketing presentation on the merits of acquiring your company and formally present your company to a small number of pre-qualified prospects.
We have the industry expertise to draw up a list of potential buyers who have the market presence, channel strategy and/or product mix to make your acquisition a likely fit. Our industry ties also represent the most senior executives in manufacturing and distribution. Our marketing presentation can get your company presented quickly to those companies we feel are the most capable of and interested in acquiring yours.
We will conduct an in-depth review of your company’s financial, historical and cultural attributes, as well as your motivation for selling the company. We then match those needs and attributes to the cultural and financial strengths of our industry network. Our entire process is very confidential, and we require non-disclosure agreements in every step of the process to ensure minimal disruption to your business.
Our fee structure for M&A consulting involves an advance payment for preparing the marketing program and a percentage of the final sales price, plus reasonable expense sharing where applicable.
