Buying a Business
Who the buyer is, makes a difference on the approach.
If the Buyer is an individual wanting to buy their first business, they are looking for both a job and entity which with their hard work will increase in value.
If the Buyer is a Family Office or a Private Equity Firm, the focus is usually on the prospects of increase in value over time. The length of time determines the type of business.
If the Buyer is a company, the focus is generally the synergism between the companies or simply the acquisition of more customers, manufacturing, engineering ore administrative skills.
SUCCESS IS KNOWING WHEN AND HOW TO BUY A BUSINESS
A classic growth strategy is buying a business. You may gain economies of scale, new customers, product lines, expertise, or personnel. The right strategy is extremely valuable; the wrong transaction is a waste of time and money.
Our M&A brokers are highly experienced in searches to uncover businesses to acquire, often ones that may not be on the market. Our job is to expand and enhance a business owner’s acquisition effectiveness. Our team is your business development team to design and carry out a successful acquisition strategy:
Acquire an identified target company.
Find and acquire a business(es) for your maximum advantage.
Like most capital investments, an acquisition done right provides greater value than the capital outlay.
We will create and implement a custom plan for your business development: effective, efficient, and valuable to you.
WE PUT YOUR NEEDS FIRST. WE ARE READY TO MEET AND EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS.
Services for Buyers
The brokers and agents of Alamo have had bottom-line responsibilities… we have started our own companies, raised venture capital, bought, sold, restructured, and divested companies and divisions. We identify closely with both sellers and buyers, as we have the first-person background, bringing experience, extensive training, and insight into the complex equation of ownership transfers.
Alamo is usually a seller representative BUT in order to close a transaction, most buyers must be able to properly approach a lender and negotiate a loan. Almost every buyer we work with believes they are capable of doing this, but our experience has been that unless Alamo or a packaging service manages the process the buyer will not be successful in obtaining the loan. Alamo does not raise money for buyers, but we do package loans properly which results in financing that many buyers cannot obtain without assistance.
Alamo does acquisition searches for high-net-worth individuals, companies and private equity groups.
