Guiding You Through Tough Decisions to a Successful Outcome.

The decision to sell or purchase a business is a complex one that requires careful assessment of many financial, operational and other key variables. The equation becomes more complicated when a merger is being considered. Navigating the situation successfully requires the direction and assistance of experienced advisors who can walk you through each step of the process, carefully avoiding potential pitfalls and other unexpected challenges inherent in the process. The result is a transaction that not only meets corporate objectives, but also places ownership in the strongest position possible.

To help Minnesota business owners address these challenges, Smith Schafer & Associates offers both buy- and sell-side merger and acquisition consulting services designed to help companies and individuals achieve their goals.
