About Us

Experts in sell-side business representation

Selling a business is something that most business owners might only do once in their lives. However, a strategic business sale is probably the largest and most important transaction you’ll ever conduct. So you need to make sure you are working with an experienced merger and acquisition (M&A) firm when it comes to sell-side business representation.

At Strategic M&A Advisors we help the owners of middle-market firms sell their companies at the highest possible price while securing the most favorable sale terms. We specialize in helping owners uncover and maximize the value that resides in their business so their companies are as attractive as possible to potential buyers.

Conditions Are Ripe for Selling

Business and economic conditions today are more favorable for successful mergers and acquisitions than they have been in many years. Banks are once again lending more freely while strategic buyers and equity investors are looking for opportunities to make solid acquisitions.

These factors could make now the perfect time to sell your company through either a partial or total divestiture. As your representative on the sell side of a merger or acquisition, Strategic M&A Advisors follows a detailed, proprietary process designed to maximize the value of your company while building a lasting and positive relationship with a business buyer.

A Worldwide Marketplace of Buyers

Unlike some M&A brokers, we go far beyond just “matchmaking” between business buyers and sellers. We bring a worldwide marketplace of potential business buyers to the table, which gives our clients’ businesses broad exposure to thousands of potential buyers, including hedge and venture capital funds, strategic buyers and private equity groups.

This increases the chances of finding the right fit between buyer and seller — and of you getting maximum value for your business.

The Strategic M&A Advisors team includes expertise across the entire spectrum of business mergers and acquisitions. This includes business advisors, corporate risk managers, accountants and attorneys — all of whom specialize in business M&A.
