“No Deal is better than a Bad Deal” is what Gregory Kovsky, President of IBA, told Barbara & I when negotiations began to go sideways related to the sale of our company after several months of meetings with a potential buyer. At that point, we were emotionally vested in the transaction and considering making concessions to complete a sale that was not in our best interest, however Gregory never lost sight of the market value of our company and our retirement goals. He knew we could do better than the deal on the table and advised us to terminate the negotiations. Semi-reluctantly, we followed his advice not knowing what the future would bring. However, his guidance was true and quicker than we anticipated we were in negotiations with a more qualified buyer and completing a sale at a superior price and terms than we had tentatively agreed to prior.
If you are looking for ethical, intelligent representation for the sale of your company, I would strongly recommend that you start and end your interview process with IBA.”

We used IBA and Gregory Kovsky to both buy and sell businesses and have the most successful transactions ever! All the bases were covered and both parties were completely satisfied – none of the “after-market” hassles. We are very confident in IBA’s abilities and ethics.

“After 11 years of business it became time to sell my business. It was clear that impartial representation was required for selling a business that was so much a part of me. After a larger number of interviews I found IBA.
My criteria for representation included, high ethics, top negotiating skills, and the ability to market and sell into the business opportunity market. Clearly, I had high standards. My expectations were exceeded in every respect.
IBA and Gregory Kovsky showed the highest level of professionalism. What became apparent was how they treated all their customers on both sides of the selling equation. Their highly ethical standards, superlative service, ability to achieve consensus amongst disparate interests, and their rapid closure of the deal were just a few of the many qualities I am proud to extol.
Without reservation, I would highly recommend IBA. Clearly, I would use their service again.”
