North Carolina Middle Market Mergers and Acquisitions
The North Carolina business climate continues to be ranked as one of the best states to do business in as a result of lower corporate tax rates, a highly educated labor supply, world-class universities, the Research Triangle and more. It also doesn’t hurt to have American Airlines and their second largest hub in the country based out of Charlotte. With such favorable business conditions and being ranked as the #1 state to do business in by Forbes (twice), it should come as no surprise that business owners selling a business in North Carolina benefit from a strong demand for high-quality middle market companies. And while selling a business in North Carolina doesn’t happen overnight, our North Carolina business brokers work with a global network of buyers to help accelerate the process since there will always be a limited number of qualified buyers in the Carolinas. Smith Holland Advisors has sold businesses all throughout the United States and with our exclusive focus on sell-side representation only, our North Carolina business brokers have the local market expertise needed to help you secure the best value when it comes time to sell your business.
Serious About Selling Your Business in North Carolina? Let’s talk.
Selling a business can be very stressful, especially if you don’t have an experienced advisor on your team to guide you through the process. And while it’s hard to avoid the inherent unpredictability when selling your business, finding the right business broker in North Carolina can make all the difference. Our North Carolina business brokers fully understand how challenging it can be to sell a business because we have all personally started, operated and sold businesses of our own in the past. We know how stressful the process can be, which is why Smith Holland takes a different approach to helping business owners plan and execute value-driven exit strategies. And while the final sale price is always important, selling your business to the right buyer is equally as important. To help make the process to sell your business as seamless as possible, our mergers and acquisitions advisors offer full transparency through every step of the transaction. While other North Carolina business brokers use a “post it and pray” approach, we get results faster by using industry-specific exit strategies that target the right acquisition candidates with the right message to effectively communicate your company’s value story.

Results driven approach to successful exit strategies.
When it comes to selling your business, every decision matters. Choosing the right exit strategy and properly preparing the business for the sale process can have a major impact on the final outcome. The Smith Holland team understands that every deal is unique and securing the best value for a divestiture is primarily based on the value story presented to strategic buyers. Our M&A advisors have extensive experience with creating robust company prospectus presentations that highlight the key selling points, revenue synergies and potential growth opportunities that give serious acquisition candidates enough information to prepare an offer. We take the time to fully understand your company’s strengths and weaknesses and we use that information to build a highly targeted list of potential acquisition candidates, which includes both private equity and strategic buyers. Maximizing shareholder value requires meticulous planning, preparation and skilled execution, and the Smith Holland team has the expertise needed to effectively communicate your company’s value story, even when changing market conditions or other operational challenges arise.
With any financial investment, the exit point is just as important as the entry point and protecting shareholder value requires precise execution. At Smith Holland, we work exclusively with clients on the sell-side of the transaction and this concentrated focus has been instrumental in helping our clients manage unavoidable risks while consistently creating a competitive bidding environment to enhance value. Our proven exit strategies are custom-tailored to the circumstances of each specific transaction that we advise on and our experienced M&A advisors have the transactional insights needed to quickly anticipate and adapt as market conditions change during the deal lifecycle. The risks will always be greater on the sell-side of the transaction and finding the right buyer is equally as important as selling for the right price. We help craft deal structures that are positioned for long-term success and work with both sides throughout the entire process to drive the transaction in a definitive and effective manner. The M&A advisors at Smith Holland have advised on hundreds of transactions over the past decade and tactile execution is at the core of everything we do.
At Smith Holland, every customized exit strategy that we develop is built on the foundation of closing success probability. We fully understand that a company valuation is meaningless if your M&A firm can’t actually deliver a qualified buyer that’s willing to close the deal at that price. Getting to a successful closing requires a realistic valuation strategy and the Smith Holland team has extensive experience with carefully orchestrating a delicate balance between what a company might be worth today compared to what it could be worth in the future if the growth opportunities are implemented. We provide complete guidance through every step of the transaction lifecycle including crafting your company’s value story, managing the buyer outreach process, negotiating deal structure, preparing the offer and purchase agreements, facilitating the due diligence process, and we don’t stop working until the outcome you envision for your deal is achieved. Smith Holland is a full-service M&A advisory firm and our commitment to delivering measurable results is matched only by our passion for helping clients achieve their goals.
We develop unique exit strategies custom-tailored around the specific nuances within your industry to achieve real results.
