The process of selling or acquiring a privately owned business can be both an emotional and stressful experience … particularly if one has not been through the process before.
Proprietary information about the seller’s business may be thoroughly scrutinized and challenged by others for the first time. On the other hand, the buyer may well be investing substantially all of his or her resources in the business being acquired and basing his or her future financial well-being primarily on its success.
We at Prominence Capital Advisors understand and are sensitive to the pressures created by this process. As such, we work diligently to make sure that the concerns of both parties are understood and equitable solutions are quickly reached.
Prominence Capital Advisors functions as an intermediary in the area of small business purchase and sales transactions. Utilizing our years of experience in the field of commercial real estate, the company's sole mission in this field is to bring together appropriate buying and selling parties so as to effect a mutually beneficial purchase/sale transaction in the most expeditious manner possible.
We are selective with regard to acquisition candidates. We become involved only with firms which can demonstrate a record of sustained profitable operations and whose price expectations are realistic in today's market environment. We are also selective with regard to buyers with whom/which we work. Prior to identifying any acquisition candidate to a particular buying prospect, we will require that the buyer provides evidence of his or her ability to consummate the purchase of the business in question, given the prevailing financial climate.
For selling companies which are valued at $1,000,000 or higher, the utilization of traditional, localized marketing techniques may not be effective or appropriate. National or international exposure may be needed in order for the seller to be most effectively marketed. In such instances we may advise the engagement of one of our affiliate middle-market intermediary firms, which operate both nationally and globally through a network of selected associates located throughout the world.
It is not unusual for the principals of a small business not to have had an independent valuation of the business performed prior to making the decision to offer it for sale. If the prospective seller is in need of valuation services, which will serve to indicate what a fair and reasonable range of value for the business is in today's marketplace, we will be happy to accommodate him or her. Our charge for a valuation report is $475.00, which will be deducted from the finder's fee due us as a result of the sale of the business.
Selling your business or acquiring a new one? How much is your business worth? Would it make sense to expand, reorganize or generate a new business plan? ... maybe even acquire some additional operating capital?
Prominence Capital Advisors is extremely sensitive to the fact that the principals or management of an acquisition candidate or parties seeking the acquisition of a business usually wish for their desires and business performance to be kept very confidential. We, therefore, believe that the confidentiality factor of a business purchase/sale transaction needs to be taken very seriously and we will see that appropriate non-disclosure agreements are executed by all applicable parties.
Prominence Capital Advisors contingent finder's fee, which is earned by successfully identifying the buying and selling principals of a business purchase/sale transaction to one another and accommodating a successful transaction, is 10%. Our minimum finder's fee is $8.000.00. These fees are due and payable at the end of the closing process of the purchase/sale transaction, through escrow.
Fees for other types of consulting, advisory or coaching services and or business valuation, if requested, will be set on an hourly or fixed fee basis under separate agreements.
Through an affiliated company, we are able to provide clients with up to $10 Million or more in long-term loans or direct investment for purposes of business acquisitions or for the expansion of an existing business, and virtually any amount of needed capital can be provided through syndication.
