Our team includes tax, due diligence, and accounting professionals; attorneys; post-sale transition and operational teams; and venture capital and private equity professionals. In addition, the following processes attribute to our success:

  • Understanding our Clients – We dig deep into the client’s company to ensure proper representation of the business during the sales process; taking the time to listen and identify the client’s pre and post-sale objectives. In addition, the seller stakeholders are interviewed to help create a FAQs so as to reduce the time the client has to spend in front of potential buyers.
  • Building a Playbook – Our team develops a electronic library of documents comprised of financials, memorandums, pitch decks, executive summaries, and prospectuses.
  • Crafting a Marketing Strategy – JH Business Advisors develops a marketing package that most favorably represents the client’s business. We then actively market through numerous channels that include the private equity marketplace, venture capital groups, individual investors, and by proprietary initiatives before JH Business Advisors’ buyer list.

We prefer to work with its clients two to three weeks prior to going to market. This both ensures that the accuracy and effectiveness of the marketing materials, and allows us to present a consistent message through the sales process. Another crucial aspect of this upfront work in closely inspecting the client’s financial statements, which helps our team to determine profitability and identify whether the client’s financials should be normalized to better position the company.

Chances are that if your company is in the position to divest or sell at the mid-market level, you’ve probably seen your fair share of successes. And successful entrepreneurs know best that in order to be successful in business, you must put people around you to help promote growth and longevity. When it comes to exiting your business, that’s where JH Business Advisors comes in.

Not only can we facilitate the sale of a business using highly proven methods via a team of highly trained professionals, but we’ve acquired, sold and started up a number of companies ourselves. We’ve been right where you are today, so we are in the enviable position to help you build a strategy that best suits your needs. Why work with mid-market brokers or bankers that only understand the financial side of a deal when you can work with a team that understands both the financial and operational aspects of a transaction?

Before an exit strategy can be developed, one first needs to review the company’s foundation to ensure it’s at the right stage to promote a solid transaction. Then, it’s important for the Founders and Investors to agree on an exit that puts everybody in a position to be successful. But how do you know when the time is right to sell, and if the time is right, what’s the best process to follow to ensure your company, your employees, your investors and you are protected during the process?
