Services for Buyers

For an individual or a company seeking a business in a particular industry or market, with a specified level of sales or profit, in a given geographical area, RB Ames can provide important added value to their search:

  • Comprehensive Research - We research and identify the companies that fit the buyer's search parameters. (Most of these companies will not be actively on the market to be sold.)
  • Initial Contact - We contact the owners of the companies directly. Often an initial contact by a third party such as ourselves is more effective than when a potential buyer makes that "cold call."
  • Qualifying Acquisition Opportunities - We conduct the initial meeting with the business owner to qualify the business for our buyer client's consideration.
  • Evaluation - We gather detailed financial, operating and market information on the business.
  • Meeting Between Buyer and Seller - Only after a potential acquisition has passed the initial analysis and is of interest to our client, do we arrange and participate in a meeting between the buyer and the business owner.
  • Financing - Where appropriate, we introduce our client to sources of acquisition financing.
  • Closing the Transaction - Once our client has decided to pursue a particular acquisition candidate, we assist in formulating the offer, conducting the due diligence, and assuring that the process proceeds to a successful closing.
