Why American Fortune
Industry norms provide business buyers with an advantage, allowing then to control the business sale process through their requirement of sellers’ confidential business information. These practices leave business sellers exposed and vulnerable, allowing many buyers to purchase businesses at low prices and bargain terms. This belittles the business sellers’ lifetimes of efforts. In a quest to facilitate exceptional value to clients, American Fortune conceived the unique “Business Sale Advisor” model, which places sellers on a advantage with buyers. Rendering services under this approach will always yield greater value for our clients.
- Historically we have sold businesses at an average of 98% of the valuation price
- We maintain utmost confidentiality by using a unique Business Sale Process
- We do not collect fees or commissions on the real estate portion of the business
“To sell a business successfully, it takes a significant amount of preparation as well as experience in business sale & acquisitions (m&a services) and extensive expertise in numerous business disciplines. Additionally, it is very important to understand the practices and tactics utilized by business buyers. In the sale of a business, the standard industry norms and processes favor buyers. Business buyers set the stage and control how a business will be sold. This approach leaves business sellers exposed and vulnerable. Buyers wind-up getting what they want at the expense of a business sellers lifetime of efforts. The second common industry practice to sell a business is the “Business Broker Model”. Because the Business Broker Model is based on collecting fees when a business sells, this approach can make business brokers do things that are not in the best interest of their clients (business sellers). In a quest for excellence and loyalty to clients, I conceived a different model which I named the “Business Sale Advisor.” This model produces exceptional results with the sale of businesses. The Business Sale Advisor (M&A Advisor) approach levels the playing field for business sellers. I branded this model of business exit strategies and selling of businesses under the name “American Fortune Mergers & Acquisitions.”
We do not follow common M&A Firm practices and we chose not to follow typical industry norms just because everyone else does. The business sale philosophy and processes are different at American Fortune. We do not subscribe to the business Business Broker Model in the sale of businesses. The Business Broker Model tends to turn reliable advisors and business Brokers into desperate sales people. Our commitment and unconditional loyalty remains with our client. Our results are different too. Those who sell a business using our services and our unique processes obtain better terms, higher selling prices and a true business sale advocate during the process of selling their business. Over the years we’ve expanded our company’s portfolio of services which complement our “Business Sale Advisor” program by offering our clients defensible business valuation services and business exit strategy planning services
