A Sell-Side Process

Driving Maximum Results

Driving real transaction value to business owners goes beyond just organizing a sale, it requires establishing a partnership with clients to understand their goals and help them achieve success.

Sell-Side Advisory

Representing a range of clients in the sale of middle-market businesses, the investment bankers at Doeren Mayhew Capital Advisors proactively manage the transaction process from start to finish, while looking to minimize distractions in their day-to-day business operations.

As M&A advisors, we work to understand and prioritize our clients’ objectives as a seller to aid in maximizing sales proceeds, identifying potential buyers, negotiating optimal deal terms, overseeing the due diligence process and facilitating the closing of the transaction. Further, unlike other investment banks, our affiliation with CPA and advisory firm Doeren Mayhew provides access to services our clients may leverage or seek as part of the sale process and beyond.
