SMC STRENGTHS & CAPABILITIES
The dynamics and challenges of middle market sale assignments are quite different than those involving larger companies. Because we specialize in arranging these smaller transactions, we have developed a specific skill set necessary in getting these deals done. Sperry, Mitchell & Company has arranged over 300 deals since our founding in 1986, establishing a reputation for professionalism, dedication, integrity and results.
How we approach the business:
- Personal involvement of Sperry Mitchell Founders and Principals: A Principal of our firm is involved in every transaction from commencement to closing. We use our experience, knowledge and dedication in guiding our clients through the intricacies of the deal process to accomplish their goals.
- Specialization in representing sellers: Our only business is representing sellers of private companies. We never represent buyers, either in acquisition searches or financings, and are under no pressure to favor any particular buyer. Our independence keeps us clear of any potential conflicts of interest.
- Focus on advising private companies: We understand the unique nature of private companies and their owners. We recognize that our clients often care as much about the impact of a deal on their company culture, their employees and their community as they care about the purchase price. We listen to our clients and find buyers who will accommodate the breadth of their economic and non-economic goals.
- Expertise in middle market transactions: Our niche focus has proved invaluable in assisting our clients on valuation expectations, as well as identifying the most active and aggressive buyers in this sector of the market. We have the expertise and experience necessary to successfully execute deals in a timely manner.
- Global access to a wide range of acquirers: We actively interface with a large universe of potential acquirers and investors, including many leading domestic and foreign acquirers and private equity funds. We carefully research and screen all potential buyers to ensure a good fit for our client.
