“Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.”
At ICCG, we believe we have the capability to provide wise counsel for you when buying, selling, or transitioning a business. Plans shouldn’t be made in isolation, so come sit at our table and see what the right plan is for you.
Sell Side Advisory
As our bread & butter for more than 20 years, we have walked alongside our clients through the entire process of selling their business. We have first hand experience in selling businesses after 10+ years of ownership, making us capable of looking through the eyes of the owner. We know how difficult it can be to let go of your “baby” after building it over decades. We also know that not all transaction structures can benefit you enough to reach your goals. We believe we have the experience and creativity to help you successfully transition your company to a new owner and maximize your proceeds.
Transitioning ownership to family or an employee can seem simple, but if not done right, hurt relationships are inevitable. We have seen it done well, and we have seen done poorly. We ensure the difficult questions are answered, the sticky conversations are held, and the successor is set up for success. We have several years of experience transitioning ownership to the next generation. Let us quarterback the transition alongside you, maximizing the potential for success for years to come.
Buy Side Services
Buying a business can be confusing. Where do you even start? For us, after determining what resources you have available, we “frame the box” or assess the criteria of what you are looking for. From there, we start our extensive search. After identifying a target, we will formulate an offer, assist in the negotiation, and coordinate the due diligence and closing process. As owners and operators of several businesses ourselves, we know what questions to ask and problems to solve initially to set you up for success.
