Value of an Investment Banker

In selling your business you may want to use an investment banker. 

Here are some reasons to consider:

Investment bankers know how to prepare the dataroom and what documents will be needed for the transaction.

Most founders are new to the sell-side process.

They know how to present your business so it matches the needs of the acquirer.

Each acquirer will have a unique set of care about.

They know how to set proposed valuations for the candidate acquirer.

The valuation will change from one buyer to the next.

They understand the transaction process and what it takes to complete it.

The process for selling a business is more involved than a standard fundraise.

They have a network of potential buyers to pursue.

You want as big a network as possible to sell your business. 

They have access to investors who can fund the deal to complete the transaction.

It’s often the case you will need to raise funding to put your business into the best possible position for a sale.

Consider using an investment banker to sell your business.
