Putting Our Clients First

Enhancing the value of your company means having a transferable entity. When a client goes through this process, all aspects of the business are put in balance. The IAG initiative focuses on our client’s being enhanced as they enter the market. A transferable management team is as important as quality of earnings. Therefore, redundancy in owner dependency issues is paramount. Furthermore, diversity in the customer mix creates critical mass which the buying community views as low risk.

  • “When I first signed on with IAG, I was skeptical. I’d been trying to sell my business for months with few buyers to show for it. Once Charles was assigned to my case, though, I really started to see the benefits of working with a team of experienced agents. He meticulously explained the process and helped me understand the need for marketing my business to a wider range of buyers – which he managed to do without betraying my desire for confidentiality. Without IAG’s help, I’m not sure how much longer it would’ve taken to sell my business, but I certainly wouldn’t have been as satisfied with the outcome.”
  • -Bryan Goodfellow - Select Coffee Service
  • “I had all but given up on finding a buyer for my business when IAG called me with potential matches. Jason was incredibly helpful throughout the process – always available on his cell phone even when he wasn’t in the office, and talking me and my team through any terms we weren’t familiar with. The important thing was that they had the resources to reach out to companies like Value Drug Mart and work a deal with them, while I had been focusing on individuals with little success. Because of Jason’s efforts, I was able to get the full price I wanted for my business. Thanks, IAG!”
  • - Brent Slater - Superior Pools
  • “After losing a few key customers with the economic downturn, we had despaired of successfully selling our business. That’s when we met with John from IAG, who performed a complimentary sell ability score test that helped us understand which areas of our company were still viable for a sale. I had been holding out for some kind of big business buyer in the past, but given the scale of our company at the moment, John helped us find an individual who could meet our price and ensure that our products remained as high-quality as ever. I would recommend that anyone with little experience in the M&A world look to guidance from the good people at IAG”
  • - Richard Hoesly - Rick's Boots
  • “I owe everything to IAG and their agent, Stefan. My business had suffered a sales downturn in 2008, which made it hard to find a buyer willing to pay me a tenable price even though there was a lot of potential left in it. So, when I came to IAG for help it was as a last resort and I was a broken-down man. But Stefan’s vigorous hard work energized me, and together we managed to make a deal with Global Tech Masters. I never would’ve imagined getting more than my initial estimate, but Stefan is nothing if not a tough talker, and with him by my side I was able to stand up for the firm I’d created and get back its true worth.”
  • - Searn Seguin - Hellcat Services
  • “Without Jason’s assistance, I would never have understood how to properly price my business. He and his customer service group walked me through the Business Valuation and coached me on the importance of setting an asking price that could be sustained by my EBITDA. And thanks to IAG’s relationship with Safeguard, I found a group that could not only purchase my business from me, but also help it grow and thrive even though it was no longer under my care. I couldn’t have retired so smoothly without Jason and IAG’s help.”
  • -Dennis Hubbell - Business Forms, Inc. - El Paso, TX
  • “Despite listing our business with a local broker, we failed to receive any significant offers and hurt our numbers by informing customers of an upcoming sale. Thankfully, one of those customers suggested trying IAG, and soon we were able to keep talk of the sale from spreading. Not only that, but Keith also set us up with official documentation to present to buyers, the necessity of which our previous broker had neglected to explain. It was hard to believe that an individual buyer could get us the price we needed, but with IAG’s large pool of buyer connections, Keith found the right man for the job and we couldn’t be more grateful. I’ve started a new business with my proceeds, but if I ever need to sell again, I know I’ll be using IAG!”

  • “Im am very satisfied with IAG. They helped me through the process of selling my business. Paula was excellent to work with over the couple of years it took for me to sell my business. I can't say enough good things about IAG and the people that they have on board.” - Joe Roter - Plateronics
  • “This was a long and very involving process, and I lost faith a few times. That being said, my broker, Paula was very helpful throughout the entire process and kept me focused. My business was very atypical, and required a very specific type of buyer. The folks at IAG delivered on what they said they would do. I do not think I would have been as successful as I was without their help. Certainly worth all of the time and effort from all parties!” - Chris Dubey - Berlin EMS
