Selling a Business

Realize the full value of your business with MidAtlantic Business Advisors.

For most owners, selling a business is a once in a lifetime event. An owner cannot afford the outcome of an expensive learning curve resulting from a lack of transactional experience. Our team provides the kind of personal attention and resources to small and lower middle-market firms that typically are only available to sellers of larger companies. Our expertise in this highly specialized industry creates an advantage for our clients. This translates into positive negotiation results even with the most seasoned acquirers and properly structured transactions, regardless of the circumstance. During the entire process, our clients are able to maintain confidentiality and continue operating and preserving or increasing the value of their businesses.

The MidAtlantic Method:

  • Maintain strict confidentiality throughout the entire process
  • Develop an exit strategy based on 30 years of experience
  • Determine fair market value through solid analytics and research
  • Identify added value strategies to make business "market ready"
  • Present business in the most favorable light
  • Stage the various marketing activities to garner multiple responses
  • Identify and screen buyers
  • Structure the most beneficial transaction
  • Maximize after-tax profitability

Most importantly, the MidAtlantic Method works. Industry sources consistently estimate that less than 20% of businesses that are listed for sale get sold, and those only at 80% of the original asking price. To us, these are disgraceful and unacceptable statistics. At MidAtlantic Business Advisors, our success rate is four orders of magnitude higher, and

"not only are 80% of MidAtlantic's listings sold, they are typically sold at or very near asking price." *

* MidAtlantic's actual historical averages were 82% success rate and 97% of asking price as of 1/1/2017
