Selling a Business

Sell Side Investment Banking

IndustryPro employs a unique and powerful approach to finding buyers and partners for its Sell-Side clients. The IndustryPro approach is a modern, highly structured process that optimizes for speed, strategic fit, valuation and structure. Combined with close collaboration and communication with our clients, IndustryPro is able to consistently close successful transactions.

M&A advisory firms usually begin researching only after obtaining a client. IndustryPro researches and identifies ideal investors prior to contacting a business owner. If timing is not right at initial contact we maintain contact with owners while updating our investor database. When owners decide the time is right, IndustryPro has already qualified the investors. Our process requires more effort before receiving a mandate but when investment time arrives we already have the most suitable investors lined up. Our business model yields the best value in the shortest time. As a result of our preparation, IndustryPro avoids long, drawn-out searches and low-probability introductions which consume valuable business resources and expose companies to damaging rumors and confidentiality breaches.

“I am extremely impressed with IndustryPro’s associations and professionalism, and their staying fully engaged from start to finish. I highly recommend IndustryPro.”
