Fee Structure

The fees we earn on business sale assignments are very small relative to the difference between an excellent and a poor outcome.  When going it alone or using a less experienced financial advisor, your risks increase dramatically.  These risks manifest themselves in an inferior valuation and terms, or worse, a failed sale process.

By far the most significant component of our fee is our success fee.  This is typically based on a percentage of the value realized for the business and is paid on closing of the transaction.  If you choose not to close the transaction, you do not pay a success fee.  We also charge a modest work fee, which is creditable against our success fee.  The work fee allows us to recover some of our operating expenses prior to close.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like more information.  We would be pleased to provide you with an assessment.
