Compass Advisors helps business owners exit their company for Peak Value.

A Message from Bryce DeGroot, President

 
 

As a recognized M&A advisory firm, we have worked with top entrepreneurs and market leading companies.  Since 1991, we have achieved over 145 business exits for our clients. 

We serve clients who align with our all-in approach to achieving their goals, which is summarized by five key principles:

 

 

Selective

Selling a company is a time-intensive and complex event. To maximize our clients' outcomes, we serve a limited number of select clients each year based on industry, size, and personal fit. When you engage us as your advisor, you will secure our experience, guidance, and relentless dedication. 

CONFIDENTIALITY 

We believe that the highest level of confidentiality is necessary to protect you and your company. As such, we have proven procedures to ensure confidentiality, including information access policies and encrypted file transfer.  

unrivaled support

You've given your all to build your business and we'll do the same to help you capture the proceeds of that investment. Our team works directly with you throughout the entire exit process, from initial discussions and planning to due diligence and closing.  

HONESTY

We strive to be honest and candid. We won't tell you what you want to hear; instead, we'll share what you need to hear. We've found the best relationships are founded on mutual respect. 

Results

We are results-oriented advisors who focus on the big picture.  Business deals are achieved and your goals are reached when each party has commitment to reach the destination. During the fatigue and challenges of the sale process,  we are your guide to help you confidently reach your destination of Peak Value™.

OUR CLIENTS

 

Our clients typically include established companies in the manufacturing, technology, outdoor recreation, healthcare, distribution, and service industries. While all of our clients' information is highly confidential, their revenue size typically ranges from $1 - $75 million. Our network and approach best matches those companies with strong performance and meaningful value.

It’s a done deal. Thanks to... Compass Advisors. From beginning to end the process was well thought out and orchestrated in a most professional manner.
