Buyer Services

McGladrey Capital Markets provides advisory services to U.S. and international corporations, private equity groups and others interested in identifying and acquiring North American businesses that match specific acquisition objectives. We can help identify potential acquisition candidates - including those not currently on the market - giving you advanced access to businesses that most closely match your desired acquisition objectives.

Corporations, private equity groups and high-net-worth individuals have long come to McGladrey Capital Markets to find attractive midsized North American companies whose owners are motivated to sell. This isn’t surprising, since few (if any) investment banks can match the size and diversity of our exclusive inventory of midsized companies. Our ever-changing seller portfolio includes businesses engaged in a variety of industries.

Seller Services

Selling midsized companies and helping clients achieve their financial objectives involves complex, highly evolved processes, specialized skills, comprehensive knowledge, sound judgment and exceptional resources.

There are no shortcuts.

At McGladrey Capital Markets, our senior dealmakers are personally involved in every transaction. Our process usually begins with a detailed valuation to determine how much the particular business is potentially worth to attractive buyers. Once completed – should the client decide to proceed with a potential sale – we launch the tactical M&A process and introduce the company to buyers in North America, Europe, Asia and elsewhere around the world.

We develop comprehensive marketing materials, including an Information Memorandum and a one-page executive summary called a Précis. We also develop an extensive list of targeted buyers, using our extensive network of industry contacts and databases of strategic and financial acquirers from around the world. We qualify client-approved potential buyers and work with the client to determine the most desirable deal structure and terms.

In addition, we hold various buyer symposia throughout the year for both international and domestic buyers, as well as a variety of industry conferences. The industry conferences, which attract an impressive array of influential industry executives, feature insightful presentations and roundtable discussions while allowing us to present attractive acquisition candidates to interested potential buyers.
