M&A Sales Success Involving Manufacturing Companies in Washington

Apr 18, 2019

Many mergers & acquisitions intermediaries attempt to sell their clients on putting them on retainer or paying upfront fees for valuation and preparation for sale services.   It is important to know as an entrepreneur the projected market value of your company prior to entering into negotiations with a potential buyer in a business sale transaction. It is equally important to select a professional intermediary that has the ability to highlight the positive attributes of a company to achieve a premium value for a business in the marketplace.  It is not necessary to pay a dollar for these services prior to completion of the transaction.

IBA is the oldest & most selective business brokerage firm facilitating sales of manufacturing companies in the Pacific Northwest. 100% of our fees are paid on performance at completion of the transaction, so we only take on projects we have a high probability of selling and always seek the highest, possible, achievable market value for our clients to maximize client satisfaction and remuneration for IBA.  We have sold over 4000 companies in the Pacific Northwest since 1975.  We like to be judged on our accomplishments and not our words.
