Sell Your Business

Selling Your Business

Each year close to one million businesses transfer ownership.  Most of these are small companies selling for $100,000 to $12,000,000.  These small companies are comprised of privately held corporations, sole-proprietorships, and family owned businesses with annual revenues from $300,000 to $20,000,000.  Yet, until an owner actually goes through a merger or acquisition he or she won’t know what to expect or how to proceed.  It is essential that a professional, experienced business broker be brought in to effectively market the company, maintain confidentiality,  and advise the owner throughout the process.  If you’re not ready to sell you should be planning for it now.  If you are then Midwest Group should be your marketer and advisor of choice.  We will guide you through the process and our objective at each step:
