Sell-side services
If you’re thinking about selling your company or taking on a private equity investor, it is in your best interest to understand what a transaction would mean to you personally and to your business. We’ve worked with countless business owners and their companies to get them ready for an exit or a capital raise, from explaining the tax implications of a potential transaction, to converting the company’s books from cash to accrual, to improving the company’s EBITDA or working capital levels. All of these steps will have a direct or indirect impact on the valuation of your business or your after-tax deal proceeds. From our extensive experience working closely with buyers and lenders, we can make sure that your company and accounting team are fully prepared for their due diligence.

We offer the following sell-side services:
  • Vendor quality of earnings
  • Financial statements preparation
  • Data room assistance
  • Tax planning
  • Estate planning

Lender services
We offer customized quality of earnings reports to debt providers, including mezzanine funds and institutional lenders, with a focus on assessing operating cash flows and stress-testing a company’s collateral.
