Buying A Company

The key to concluding a successful transaction in today’s merger and acquisition market is identifying a quality company whose owners have reasonable valuation expectations.

Often, the companies that Green Tree Capital’s acquisition search identifies are not being marketed for sale.

How It Works

Our services are specifically tailored for each assignment and adhere to a disciplined approach. Our firm assists in developing a comprehensive acquisition strategy. Acquisition search parameters are then established including industry, revenue size, profitability, geographic location, etc. We then use proven research tools and techniques to find prospective target companies.

When a target is chosen, a confidential client business profile, contact letter and confidentiality agreement are prepared and submitted as part of the initial approach on behalf of our client.

If a target company expresses an interest in selling, our firm will obtain from the owner information necessary to conduct preliminary due diligence, including financial statements, business plans, financial projections as well as other pertinent information needed.

Upon acceptance of a client’s written offer by the prospective seller, our firm will work closely with the client’s attorneys, accountants and other professional advisors to obtain all of the relevant information needed to complete the final negotiation of a definitive purchase agreement and consummate the transaction.

“Within three months of engaging Green Tree Capital to conduct an acquisition search, the firm’s professionals identified three quality target companies. Two months later a letter of intent was executed to acquire one of the companies. The transaction closed a year after engaging the firm. Green Tree Capital’s principals also arranged the senior debt, mezzanine debt and private equity needed to consummate the transaction. The firm’s ability to react quickly and find a solution to an extremely serious problem that unexpectedly arose at a very critical stage of the process was particularly crucial in completing the transaction.”
