Q. How do you value a company?
A. We employ leading-edge techniques -- utilizing approaches such as market-based and income-based ones.
Q. How long does it take to sell a company?
A. Although we'd like to say how quick it is, we can't. Selling a business normally takes 6 to 18 months.
Q. What sort of process is involved?
A. There are about 200 steps that are made. On a macro basis, the requisite skills center on evaluation, financial analysis, economics, accounting, research, forecasting, and negotiation.
Q. How can things be kept confidential?
A. COMPASS utilizes careful and proven methods that foster confidentiality.
Q. What's the cost?
A. Representation is known to "pay for itself." Published articles show that professional M&A representation can add 20% to a client's sale price.
A written proposal would specify our responsibilities and fee structure.
