IBA has meticulously built its reputation since 1975 through successfully facilitating over 4300 sales of privately held companies and family businesses in the Pacific Northwest with integrity, knowledge, experience, and skill employing best practices. It is our objective in every engagement to complete a “win-win” transaction. As a sell side focused M&A intermediary firm, IBA almost always represents the entrepreneur selling the company in a deal. However, one of the greatest compliments we can receive as a firm is when the buyer of a business comes back to us to acquire another company or to sell many years later. As a firm with an approximately fifty year track record of achievement, we have sold some companies numerous times. The average entrepreneur owns a company 7 – 8 years. IBA strongly believes that any deal we facilitate should be subject to scrutiny and analysis in full sunlight. We welcome requests for references. We are honored that many people openly share their experiences with IBA. The following is a selection of that feedback.
