Sell-Side Services

This is a very well established and sophisticated approach that typically yields multiple offers 30-250% above what would normally be obtained without this high level of representation. These multiple offers need to be valued not only in terms of price, but also by the percentage of cash at closing, motivation and ability of the suitor to close the transaction, as well as the timing requirements of the due diligence process. Other important issues include determining what direction the company will take after the transfer of ownership, proper levels of capitalization and financing, as well as the structure or form of the proposal in terms of seller tax ramifications and contingent liability assumption/indemnification.
