Sellers – M&A Support

Helping Sellers Find and Realize Value from Their Investments

Altus works with privately held companies throughout North America to develop exit plans designed for owners to realize the full and fair value of their investments consistent with other personal objectives.

Selling a business is an uncommon, but inevitable event for most business owners. As a result, most owners lack available time and experience to effectively plan and manage the process, and professionals like CPAs and attorneys are generally focused only on certain aspects of the process.  

Altus represents the interests of our clients throughout a multi-faceted process that involves numerous complex steps, including finance and accounting, legal and regulatory and finally marketing and plenty of psychology.  We stage the company, market it, qualify potential prospects, assist in structuring terms, mediate disputes and facilitate the transaction through completion. 

Why Altus?

  • We focus on finding, defining and acquiring the full value of each company represented
  • We make every effort to incorporate the personal objectives of owners in exit plans
  • Our marketing efforts are proactive and tailored to achieve maximum exposure and impact among likely buyers
  • We have a global marketing reach that includes access to corporate buyers, qualified investors and more than 1,600 private equity groups
  • We are an experienced firm with more than 350 completed transactions

Who are our Clients?

Altus principally serves the corporate and private equity community with strategic platform and add-on acquisitions in the lower middle market. While we typically work with growth oriented profitable companies whose annual revenues are between $500,000 and $10 million, we are equally interested in working with viable companies that offer strategic value to potential buyers. In most cases, we can accommodate the retention of existing management, the scaled back involvement of the seller and/or an orderly complete exit.

Feel free to contact us in complete confidence, if you’re contemplating the full or partial sale of your company in the next few years. We will gladly discuss the process and options without any cost or obligation.
