Sell My Business in Pennsylvania

Selling a business is a complex process that can be very unpredictable, but our Pennsylvania business brokers can help you secure the best value with results-driven exit strategies that put results before fees. At Smith Holland Advisors, our mergers and acquisitions advisors focus exclusively on sell-side only representation and we have the industry-specific expertise needed to help guide you through the entire process to sell your business across many different industries. With offices in Houston, Chicago, London and Dallas, our M&A firm has the global footprint needed to combine local market expertise with an international network of buyers to drive superior transaction value for our clients. While it’s important to find a business broker in Pennsylvania that covers the entire state, our M&A advisors have the global reach needed to help you sell your business for the best price by creating the right conditions for a competitive bidding environment to materialize.



Pennsylvania Middle Market Mergers and Acquisitions

As the home to the 6th largest economy in the United States, Pennsylvania continues to be a strong market for mergers and acquisitions activity across many different industry sectors. And with some of the best universities in the country, middle market companies in Pennsylvania benefit from a top tier labor force that helps make Pennsylvania the home to some of the most innovative companies in the world. At Smith Holland, we know what Pennsylvania buyers are looking for and we know how to properly craft the right value story that helps protect shareholder value during the sale. And while selling a business in Pennsylvania doesn’t happen overnight, we know that timing is everything and we work with a global network of qualified buyers to help accelerate the process since there will always be a limited number of local buyers that are actively pursuing acquisitions within your niche. More buyers will lead to a more competitive bidding environment and we take a proactive approach to bring the right level of buyer interest needed to drive up the final sale price. From Pittsburgh to Philadelphia, Smith Holland Advisors covers the entire state of Pennsylvania and we work with buyers all over the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. And with an exclusive focus on the sell-side of the deal only, our Pennsylvania business brokers have the local Pennsylvania market expertise needed to help you sell your business to the right buyer at the right price.



Serious About Selling Your Business in Pennsylvania? Let’s talk.

Selling a business is not for the faint of heart. The process can be very unpredictable and is often referred to as the “roller coaster ride” because of how long it normally takes to sell a business. And while there is inherently more risk on the sell-side of the transaction, working with the right business broker in Pennsylvania can make all the difference. Our M&A advisors understand how challenging it can be to sell a business better than most because we have been in the same position. Every member of the Smith Holland team has personally started, operated and sold businesses of our own in the past. We know the process can be stressful and we take a different approach to deal execution that always puts your best interests first. At Smith Holland, our Pennsylvania business brokers know that selling to the right buyer is equally as important as selling your business for the right price. Our goal is to make the process to sell your business as seamless as possible and our mergers and acquisitions advisors offer complete transparency through every step of the transaction. From preparing the business for the market to advising on the final purchase agreement contracts, we don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach and we get results faster by using industry-specific exit strategies that target the right acquisition candidates with the right message.

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.
