Acquisitions and Divestitures

Selling Privately Owned Businesses

We primarily represent private owners and private equity groups in the sale of their businesses to strategic buyers with the resources to pay cash and that have synergies that enable them to pay more than other potential buyers. We are also sensitive to private sellers concerns about identifying buyers that will be good stewards of their business and organizations that will be homes for your long time employees.

Wharton MidMarket Advisors differentiates your business by utilizing our deep industry focus to discretely and effectively market your business to the best qualified buyers many of whom you may not have previously considered or even heard of.

Corporate Divestitures

We are engaged by larger corporations and private equity investors to efficiently and discretely sell non core businesses units to monetize their investment and achieve their return on investment objectives.
