Quick Path


You would like to lock in your gains and reduce or eliminate exposure in the event of a sudden industry or company downturn. Perhaps you want to take advantage of market trends to optimize shareholder return. As a result, you are seeking to generate a substantial liquidity event by selling all or a portion of your company to a financial or strategic acquirer. Whether it is the first and only time a business owner will embark on a sale process, or part of a series of exits by a serial investor, our advisors will run a seamless process with your ongoing input to achieve your goals.

The decision to sell a company involves a series of complex considerations, and no two situations are alike. Effectively market and cultivate interest for your business with Sikich’s support. We distinguish ourselves in our ability to:

  • Implement a disciplined, thoughtful process to maximize transaction value
  • Offer thorough, compelling materials that tell your business’s story to each potential acquirer
  • Manage sensitive matters and maintain critical relationships with vendors, customers and employees
  • Prepare meticulously for due diligence

As part of our sell-side service offering, our team will:

  • Create a realistic valuation range based on your financials, assets, transactions and competitor analysis. 
  • Identify a universe of potential buyers and evaluate their compatibility with your company. 
  • Negotiate to reach a desirable outcome on purchase price, as well as key issues such as employment contracts and non-competes.
