Deal Structure: Price vs. Terms

Private Equity Groups, Strategic Buyers, High Net Worth Individuals – they all have unique requirements for how deals need to be structured. We will illustrate the different structures these companies use, how it will affect your transaction and how you can leverage terms to attract more buyers and increase your final sale price.

Tax Consequences

It is not just about stock sale vs. asset sale. LLC’s, S-Corps, C-Corps and other entity types are all taxed differently and this will have a major impact on your deal. Our team will help you create tax consequence reports to make sure you understand how much of your proceeds will be taxable. Just as importantly, we will work with you and your tax attorney or accountant for creative solutions and strategies.
