Representing Selling Shareholders
New Direction Partners understands that selling a business can be an emotional experience, especially when the company is family owned. We seek to insulate the selling shareholders from the negotiating process that can become contentious and frustrating. We bring industry knowledge and financial expertise to the transaction, giving the selling shareholders a much better understanding and sense of control over the deal.
New Direction Partners’ professionals guide you through the process, start to finish, step by step. We provide a valuation for our clients business. We author a complete and detailed Descriptive Memorandum for prospective buyers. We identify the best strategic and/or financial buyers for your company. Then we negotiate the economics and structure the deal to meet your objectives. We supervise the Letter of Intent to Purchase and the Purchase Agreement and work with your accountants and lawyers to form your deal team. Finally, we work to insure a prompt and successful closing. Throughout the process we report to you regularly and take direction from your supervision.
We realize that, for many of our seller clients, their equity in their company represents the lion’s share of their wealth – their estate. We understand the importance of this wealth to their families and eventually their heirs. This understanding enables us to aggressively represent our clients’ best interest.
