Mergers and Acquisitions
Do you have the in-house experience to buy or sell a company?
Call Bob today for a free consultation…and help you navigate what may be the single most important event for your company.
We offer advisory support for business owners considering strategic transactions such as selling their company to outsiders or family members and buying a competitor or supplier.
Part of that process can be an estimate of the value of the company based on real-world recent buy/sell transactions for companies similar to yours.
As a Certified Turnaround Consultant and CPA, Bob Baber can make these decisions easier and provide objective, quantifiable options that will help you determine if a merger or acquisition is the right move for you and your company.
With over 20 years experience as a Controller/CFO, Bob Baber knows what it takes to make a company successful. Baber Turnaround Consulting has worked as an interim or part-time CFO for companies involved in manufacturing, distribution, agriculture, transportation, and marketing services and can help you when the time comes to expand or merge your business.
Bob typically works in ∏ day sessions with business owners and focuses each meeting on accomplishing specific objectives.
Baber Consulting will lead your company through The "M&A Process" by:
- Creating cash flow models (short term - 13 weeks, long term - 2 years) to predict current and future cash requirements
- Serving as an “interface” between company owners, buyers, sellers, and lenders to negotiate loan terms or locate new capital
- Providing an analysis of a company’s financial procedures and controls, organizational structure, supply chain management and customer profitability
“Over four years ago, I began discussions with a very important client who indicated a desire to buy part of my business. Several years earlier, I had invited Bob Baber into our organization, once for cash flow analysis work and another time to evaluate our management structure.
He had proven his ability to look at business issues with exceptionally good judgment and develop actionable recommendations, so I brought him into the dialogue with my client.
Four years later, my former client (and current partner) and I have both benefited significantly from this new relationship. Bob was able to get all the issues out on the table in a manner that generated a high level of confidence in all parties that a fair agreement would result.
Without his timely, well-articulated input during the negotiation process, things would not likely have progressed as smoothly as they did. I would recommend him, without hesitation, in any sensitive business negotiation or discussion.”
