Business Acquisitions

If your growth strategy is to expand through acquisition, Sun M&A can assist you in achieving your acquisition goals by utilizing our extensive network to identify potential targets that fit your acquisition criteria, valuing the prospective acquisitions, and assist in negotiating and structuring the transaction once a suitable target is identified. A successful acquisition search is a challenging undertaking as quality acquisition opportunities are very difficult to find. The majority of buyers approach this process in a passive manner; by searching websites and contacting business brokers to see what companies are currently representing. This process is lengthy, attracts many under-performing and over-valued businesses, while seldom yielding a quality company. A proactive acquisition program with Sun Mergers & Acquisitions, LLC can serve to eliminate these disadvantages by identifying many more interested sellers than are currently “on the market.” Business owners frequently tell us that they would be interested in selling if we had a specific buyer, but are not interested in marketing their company for sale on the open market.” Working on your behalf, Sun M&A implements a business acquisition strategy to pro-actively approach hundreds of identified potential targets. It has been our experience that this approach will generate significant activity and create quality options.
