There has never been a more exciting time in the field of Mergers, Acquisitions and Business Sales.
The oldest Baby Boomer turns 70 this year, ushering in what many economists are calling “The Silver Tsunami” and with it comes the biggest transfer of wealth in the history of the world. It is estimated that some 12 Million businesses will transfer ownership over the next few decades as the largest population of entrepreneurs sell their businesses and enter retirement.
As an M&A Advisor or Business Intermediary with Sunbelt, we are on the front lines, doing our part to ensure that these businesses are passed successfully to the next generation. We help sellers who own companies with enterprise values of between $50,000 to $25,000,000 position their companies for the market to achieve the highest possible value for their business. We work to find the best possible buyer for our client’s company so that they can retire assured that their business has been passed along to a good steward that will continue building on what they have established.
The career paths and backgrounds of our dealmakers are as varied as the businesses we represent. Top producers are client oriented, entrepreneurial, optimistic and self-reliant with a love for learning what makes businesses go. Former attorneys, CPA’s and business owners do well in our industry as do people with deep, industry-specific experience.
For college students interested in learning the industry, we offer a robust training program. Interns with Sunbelt Atlanta are offered an opportunity to work on every aspect of a transaction, shadowing a senior deal maker, from pitch to close. Interns have an opportunity to learn how to write CIMs, conduct industry and buyer research, populate due diligence rooms and have a “seat at the table” in management presentations.
