Transaction Advisory

Successful mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures take vision and planning. Before starting a transaction, it is important to know your options. We can help.

Keiter guides privately-held businesses in analyzing and coordinating all aspects of the transaction so that the results are most favorable. By working with clients at an early stage, we are able to understand their business and help identify specific needs. We help seller’s maximize the business’ value and assist acquirer’s ensure the acquisition is a good fit for their organization and the owner’s goals.

Maintaining the structure of a transition so that it is tax efficient is one of our top priorities. Our approach minimizes net cash outflows for a purchaser and maximizes net cash received by a seller after taxes.

Through our relationships with investment bankers and other centers of influence, we connect clients with additional expertise in mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures.
