For sellers, there are many factors to consider when evaluating typically complex offers. Once our team gets a business out to buyers, we take competing bids and provide a side-by-side analysis to sellers to help simplify how offers compare with one another. Our job as mergers and acquisitions (M+A) specialists is to explain these in their entirety. Owner financing, carried interest, and indemnification caps all present (possible) future opportunities and/or problems. When these side-by-side comparisons are completed, there is almost always a clear monetary winner. But is it all about the money?
