Sell or Share Ownership


Grow Your Business


Fund your strategy

Selling your company can mean exiting the business completely, selling just a part of the business to satisfy cash or estate needs, or allowing one partner to exit while the other partner(s) remain.

Acquisitions come in all shapes and sizes. They can involve acquiring a competitor, supplier, or large customer. The transaction can be structured as a cash purchase, leveraged buyout, or merger.

Growing your business from the inside can require capital, from equity ownership to senior debt, and everything in between.
