Business Sale and Purchase

Fealty assists business owners:

  • sell 100% of their mid-market businesses
  • raise equity for fast growth businesses
  • buy mid-market businesses for investors.

The generic term is “Financial Intermediary” but is also called an M&A Advisory, Corporate Advisory or Investment Bank. Smaller businesses use Business Brokers.

An intermediary introduces business owners to investors. The introduction provides investors with all the information they need to know to make an investment decision. On the other side of a deal, I assist with structuring the transaction.

See the article on the business sale process on how we sell a business including what it is different from selling a small and medium business.
