A Bastianelli Group Service

Negotiating the best overall deal for your company requires a complete understanding of the company and all aspects of the merger and acquisition process.

The Bastianelli Group provides merger and acquisition services to clients in a variety of industries. The professionals at the Bastianelli Group understand the complexities associated with valuing, marketing, negotiating and structuring a tax-efficient sale or purchase of a business. We are experienced with all aspects of the merger and acquisition process.

We work with you to understand your personal and financial goals and negotiate and structure a transaction that fits these goals. We focus on the end result as we manage the sale or acquisition process. This allows you to concentrate on managing your business to keep it running smoothly.

Our team of professionals helps maximize the ultimate value you receive and reduce the time necessary to complete the transaction.


INTERMEDIARY SERVICES (Selling Your Company)
STAGE I
Business Analysis

We analyze these key areas of your business:

  • Marketing and Sales
  • Organization and Human Resources
  • Finance and Accounting
  • Management and Systems

    We analyze the company's profitability and business systems. We also look at the external forces influencing your company's potential from a buyer's perspective, such as competition and marketplace factors.

    The analysis culminates in a comprehensive understanding of your business - identifying strengths and exposing weaknesses. This approach allows us to see your business through the eyes of a potential buyer and allows us to begin to strategize and position your company for sale.

    This process enables us to identify opportunities for "add backs" relating to potential buyer synergies and to identify resources not necessary under different ownership.


    STAGE II
    Business Valuation

    Every business is unique. A company's value is based on a multiple of variables. Using the findings from the Business Analysis, we will prepare a valuation of your company based on history, normalizing adjustments, "add backs" and future expectations for your business. Equally as important as the valuation is the ability to explain the rationale behind the resulting value.
  • STAGE III
    Marketing Your Company

    Using information gathered during the Business Analysis and the Business Valuation, we prepare a comprehensive package for presenting your company to potential buyers.

    We identify and qualify potential buyers that are interested. Upon receipt of the appropriate confidentiality agreements, the marketing package is selectively distributed to potential buyers as approved by you.


    STAGE IV
    Negotiating & Structuring

    The structure and ultimate value of a transaction is unique to the characteristics of the business and your personal financial goals.

    Many transactions include both financial and non-financial terms and convenants that impact the ultimate value of the transaction. We work with you to understand these issues and how they ultimately impact you and your business. Our overall understanding of the process and your business allows us to negotiate and structure transactions that are most valuable to you.

    Our tax and accounting expertise allows us to maximize the after-tax return and build your personal wealth.


    STAGE V
    Closing The Deal

    The final stage in the process is the closing of the deal. It is imperative that the business terms agreed to in the negotiation process make it through to the final sale agreements. We work with your legal professionals to ensure that the agreed upon business terms survive the closing process.
    The knowledgeable advisors of the Bastianelli Group provide quality professional support for both the seller and the buyer.
