Sell your business on your terms.
Destined is not the typical M&A firm – we are former business owners that have sold our own businesses. Why is that important? Most of our clients have spent years building their company and this is the one and only time they plan on selling a company…so they need to get it right.
We have first-hand understanding of the difficult choices you will make as you select an M&A advisor, prepare to present the business to buyers, navigate the due diligence process and – most importantly – prepare for life after the sale. This includes properly communicating with your employees, customers and suppliers or business associates that have been vital to your business for all these years.
Our expertise is in working with seasoned businesses that are in specific industries and have reached a scale that can be leveraged by a new owner. The companies with whom we excel are:
|B2B & Professional Services||Revenue: $10 million – $500 million|
|Construction||EBITDA: $2 million – $25 million|
|Distribution||Longevity: 10+ years|
Our mergers & acquisitions services.
Destined offers four specialized M&A advisory services.
Our exit options process will help you narrow your focus on the type of sale that will achieve your financial and personal goals. Most clients we work with complete one of three sale transactions.
Engaging both corporate and financial buyers to find the right acquirer that meets your financial and personal goals for the business is what energizes the Destined team. While contacting the buyers is important it’s our ability to tell your story in a compelling way that is important and our constant vigilance on your behalf to ensure the buyer will deliver on their promises, as we navigate the due diligence process to protect your business and ensure all aspects of the transaction are handled to get you to a successful closing.
