Our client was a business owner experiencing difficulty in growing the business. Shortly after we started working with him, the business was appraised. Some years later, it was appraised again at about twice the value. The business owner approached us for help in preparing the company for sale in three-to-five years.

When the client was ready, actually a bit more than five years later, we assisted in the process of selling the company. At that point, the decision was to set the asking price at well over four times the first appraisal mentioned above. Dossin Business Solutions assisted in the preparation of both initial offering materials and in creating and monitoring an online due diligence room.

Result: The client cleared over five times the initial appraisal amount, even after paying the investment banker and paying key employees the incentive compensation which matured upon the successful sale.
