Company Overview

Linda is an M&A Broker, who represents Owners who want to retire, try their hand at a new endeavor, relocate or simply relinquish the challenges, trials & tribulations and rewards of business ownership. These owners want to work with someone who is ready to take the business they have built to the next level. Helping an Owner reap the rewards for his or her years of dedication, ingenuity, and hard work is one facet of the M&A Broker's endeavor. Finding the prospective entrepreneur who relishes the challenges and who has the ability to write and implement a strategic business plan for future growth, enables: 1) The Owner to exit gracefully, often with compensation that funds either a comfortable retirement or new venture. 2) The employee, customer and vendor relationships to continue to prosper. 3) The individual acquirer to apply his talents to maintaining and growing an up and running a profitable company with systems in place, avoiding the riskier start-up alternatives. 4) The corporate/industry entity to acquire strategic operations, possibly folding them into an existing plant, eliminating overhead while expanding markets and cross-selling. An existing business may be a polished gem or a diamond in the rough, but is almost always multi-faceted!

Purcell Associates LLC / Linda J. Purcell - M&A Broker.

Linda enjoys the transaction process, from preparing a company for market through the closing and successful transition of ownership. It is essential for an Owner to understand the range of values in which Linda expects to see activity when the business comes to market. A quality Confidential Business Review that accurately describes the owner's role and business philosophy, products and services offered, vendors, competition, key employees, the physical and intangible assets and historical financials is essential. The resulting comprehensive package is a collaborative effort reflecting Linda's questions and research coupled with the owner's knowledge, input, and review. When the company is properly positioned and packaged, the search for the best prospective acquisition candidate begins... and continues on a confidential basis. The goal is to find the individual or corporate acquirer who can utilize existing skills and resources to acquire and grow an already successful operation!
