The sale of your business is NOT JUST a transaction, it’s a life transition. Whether to fund retirement or capitalize on the market, our exclusive business selling process combines personalized advocacy with trusted insight to efficiently manage a successful sale. Created by Sigma Mergers & Acquisitions, the Sigma DealMap™ process ensures the highest yield for your business is achieved and your legacy protected.
The start of our process provides an opportunity to exchange the information needed for the most optimal outcome. Together we review information about your business heritage, assets, unique attributes and personal objectives, as well as outline what to expect throughout our engagement. This step involves us learning about your goals and the attributes of the business that are not found in the Financial statements.
Once we collect the information necessary for assessment, we provide an opinion of value for the business utilizing multiple valuation models to ensure the highest and most accurate value for your business. The Business Valuation is a free no obligation opinion of the value of your business. We present the representation agreement and once signed, proceed to identify the appropriate purchaser.
The search for a buyer is strategic and precise. This process starts with the Confidentiality Navigator, a tool we’ve designed to protect the anonymity of the sale. Our marketing program consists of a series of innovative solutions, industry-leading technologies and established best practices. As the plan is deployed we consistently keep you updated on developments. Envisage is defined as positioning the business in a way to highlight the best characteristic. Sigma’s business profile and marketing package demands confidentiality while at the same time creating the most positive Envisage.
Our outbound marketing begins with our database of over 5,000 active buyers. These business buyers are vetted, qualified and actively looking for a quality business. Potential buyers are evaluated with our proprietary methods to identify purchasers that are best positioned for your unique business environment. In addition to finances and business goals, we review their resumes and evaluate their skill sets.
As we move closer to securing you an offer, a review of the tangible and intangible assets within your business is performed while we are negotiating every point of the deal. The thorough management of this step enables us to guard against any unseen problems in the deal, finalize the offer and ensure a timely close.
A signed offer launches the purchaser’s final review of financial and legal documents. Contingencies are examined and any outstanding matters are confirmed to protect the transaction. The close of this step results in a signed Purchase Agreement.
To finalize the sale, we confirm the transaction is accurately and efficiently completed. This includes reviewing the appropriate documents, attaining final signatures and confirming that payment is properly sent. We help close the sale knowing the original objectives are met and your satisfaction is surpassed.
