Most of these buyers have experts in acquiring privately-held companies.
It is most valuable to use an expert M&A professional to guide you through each phase of the process.
Although each business transaction presents its own variables, M & A professional advisors use the same high standards of compliance to structure, negotiate and close a deal successfully.

In other cases, owners may only sell a percentage of their company as a recapitalization investment.
This business technique may act as a double or even third exit strategy, where owners can pull out cash while setting themselves up for a much bigger profit in a few years from now after a re-acquisition for more money is made by other Private Equity Groups whose investments have caused a triple or quadruple value increase in the original company.
Selling a small percentage of company shares can be profitable, if not more, than if 100% of the company had been sold.
They may purchase 100% of your company or seek to structure an alliance that will give them purchase power and ownership of the company in the future.
Many wealthy individuals collaborate with each other like those who belong to private equity groups.
