M&A Experience

Selling a family-owned or closely held business is a complex process requiring a unique set of skills. With Carl Marks Advisors on your side, we quickly cut through the clutter of rapidly changing, complex issues to identify and execute the best solution.

Selling your company is often the most important financial decision the owner(s) of a family or closely held business will ever make. As part of a fourth-generation family-owned, entrepreneurial business, Carl Marks Advisors truly understands this dynamic, and the pressures it brings at this critical juncture in the life of a company. Our team acts as a trusted advisor in these situations, working tirelessly to navigate the complexities and close the right deal with the right buyer at the right price.

We provide high-touch service, quarterbacking the sale transaction from sale preparation to closing. Unlike many other firms, there is no “Bait and Switch.” We bring partner-level attention to each aspect of the deal and guide the seller throughout the entire sale process.

Whether looking to sell a business, grow through an acquisition, or spin-off a business unit, Carl Marks Advisors has the in-depth knowledge and experience required to help clients achieve their strategic and financial goals.  We are a true partner that will help guide you into and through the next phase of your business evolution, with the skillset, market knowledge and experience to get there.
