We can help you buy a business
Owning a business can be one of the best ways to create recurring income and an accumulation of wealth.
There are a wide range of motivations for you to acquire a business, whether it’s to be your own boss, to have more flexibility and control over your schedule, to replace a job or to pursue a hobby.
Owning your own business can be highly rewarding however, the time and costs of starting a business from scratch are often significantly underestimated.
Furthermore, it is common knowledge that 20% of businesses fail in their first year and around 60% will go bust within their first three years..
The above considerations illustrate some of the potential benefits in acquiring an established business.
Businesses are bought and sold everyday for a multitude of reasons and Marshall Sterling is well positioned to source and transact lower-middle market opportunities. (Typically defined as a business with annual revenues between 5 million and 50 million).

This would typically involve consulting to understand the specific requirements and motives relation to the desire for a business acquisition.
We assist our clients in developing financial valuation models, conducting research relating to current industry matrix and setting expectations.
