For most business owners, the sale of their business will be the single largest liquidity event of their lifetime. Careful pre-sale transaction planning is critical to minimizing the risks and streamlining the transaction process. Statesman knows that many companies that operate within the middle market (especially the lower middle market) tend to focus less on accounting and IT, and also tend to have lean management teams. Transaction preparation, specifically sell-side due diligence, can offer a potential solution to these problems, before a transaction is initiated and issues result in impacting the value or structure.
