M&A Transactions

In any M&A transaction you pursue, Mertz adds value by helping you select the right strategic allies, guiding you throughout the process and advancing your best interests. Turn to us for connections to a vast network of investment bankers and attorneys, along with an uncommon understanding of buyers and sellers built on over 30 years of experience.

Additionally, in select transactions where the buyer and seller are already identified – whether it’s an outside party or a management/employee buyout – Mertz also can negotiate for you and close deals efficiently and effectively. Our CEO Linda Mertz, has personally closed over 100 M&A transactions.

The Many Ways You Benefit from Mertz Support

An experienced advisor can help you understand what’s important to all parties in a transaction – providing practical advice that keeps the process moving, avoids classic pitfalls and produces a successful outcome. Unlike an attorney, Mertz can talk with any party to the transaction – providing access to valuable feedback that’s otherwise not available.

This course of action can help you avoid costly mistakes. Having led hundreds of transactions over more than two decades, we can anticipate problems and properly position you for success. We are experts at managing and supporting value discussions, including financial modeling and other valuation techniques.

In the end, we know that a transaction has to be right for both the buyer and the seller. In the event either party decides not to move forward, we can help chart a new direction.
