Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) encounter rare opportunities in business deals, and achieving successful M&A transactions demands the right advisory partner. Therefore, selecting the ideal partner becomes paramount.
So, how do you assess the credibility of potential M&A professionals, each proclaiming their excellence?
The true measure of a reputable advisory firm lies in the testimonials from the last four completed transactions. Testimonials unveil whether promises and priorities were met throughout the process. While certain deal breakdowns may be beyond the advisor’s control, identifying genuine reasons versus patterns of failure is crucial.
Engage in direct testimonial conversations with prior sellers to gain firsthand insight into the process, services, and outcomes.
A phone or video testimonial offers a comprehensive understanding of the process, costs, and the suitability of the advisory firm. If they cannot provide references for the past year, their credibility may be questionable.
FROM THESE TESTIMONIAL CALLS YOU WILL LEARN:
- Time from engagement to exit.
- Delivery on promised outcomes and valuations.
- Transparent cost alignment.
- Overcoming obstacles.
The right M&A advisor anticipates and addresses such challenges proactively, bolstering your market position. An effective advisor remains agile amid market dynamics and your unique selling process intricacies.
To ensure premium service and profound insights, we commence with a Transaction Readiness Report. This process advances your business towards sale readiness by concentrating diligence on key elements. Coupled with a strategic plan to mitigate issues before market entry, this approach enhances successful transactions that optimize value and minimize risk.
