Choosing the Right M&A Advisor: Key Questions for Success

Share This Post

Numerous deals assisted by an M&A advisor occur annually, leaving clients dissatisfied due to the advisor’s performance, attitude, or support.

To grasp the value of a genuine M&A advisor, directly converse with sellers from the last four completed transactions. Ask them to elaborate on the advisor’s performance, process, success, and service.

Selecting and hiring Merger and Acquisitions advisors to manage business sales stands as the most pivotal “purchase decision” a business owner makes. Request evidence of deal management experience and references that vouch for deal success. Grasping the team’s thought process in structuring such deals can also be beneficial.

Hence, how should potential M&A professionals, all claiming to be the best, be evaluated?

Several essential queries include:

  • Duration from engagement to exit?
  • Did the corporate finance firm fulfill commitments?
  • Did the firm match the initial valuation quoted?
  • Did costs align with expectations?
  • How were hurdles tackled?
  • Did the advisory firm persist till the end?

Modern buyers scrutinize businesses rigorously. They pose challenging questions, challenge market views, and question valuation assumptions. The right M&A advisor anticipates and rectifies these issues beforehand, bolstering your position upon entering the market.

An effective advisor navigates shifting market dynamics and adapts to complexities inherent in your selling process.
