buyer representation

We represent buyers with acquisition searches, market research, valuation and deal structuring.  We often get involved when the buyer has identified a 'target' business and possibly even started conversations with the representative or business owner.  Buyers typically have very limited experience in determining Fair Market Value of a business, risk factors of the target company, deal negotiations and securing financing and transaction management.  It is best to seek Buy-Side Representation to improve the overall business purchase outcome.  We offer comprehensive buyer representation or à la carte services depending on the situation.

BUY-Side Representation includes:

  • 'PriceCheck' business valuation of the target company
  • KPI analysis of the company against industry stats
  • Risk assessment & issue identification of the target company
  • Consulting and transaction guidance
  • Dealing with either the seller or seller's rep directly
  • Drafting the Letter of Intent (LOI)/Offer
  • Handling all negotiations with the sell-side
  • Assisting with the due diligence process
  • Assisting with lease negotiations (if leased space)
  • Draft and negotiate contractual documents
  • Deal structuring and price allocation negotiations
  • Evaluate and secure financing
  • Assisting with all pre-closing requirements (licenses, accounts, insurance, software, staff paperwork, etc.)
  • Coordinating closing processes
  • Transition support

Buy-Side Fees

Our fees depend on whether the target company is represented by a cooperating broker and may include an upfront retainer.  We offer several options depending on whether the Buyer prefers end-to-end full representation or à la carte services.  All fees are agreed upon ahead of time to avoid any surprises.  To discuss our 'buy-side' services and associated costs, we invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation with our Principal Broker, Teija Heikkilä.

VALUATION SERVICES

We are experts in business valuations for pet care business, pet resorts, dog daycares, grooming shops, veterinary hospitals and retail stores.  We provide 'PriceCheck' valuations for Buyers interested in a target company but are either concerned about the asking price or are asked to present an offer.  

Our 'Deal Analysis' report includes a business valuation of the target company, consideration of the real estate (if included), risk assessment of the entire transaction, cash flow analysis and lending analysis.
