Publicly-owned companies have long appreciated the role of experienced advisors in initiating, negotiating, and evaluating merger and acquisition opportunities. At The Inman Company our business is providing these same services to privately owned and family companies. We shift the balance of power in favor of private companies and family business owners as they consider exit options. Our consultants have hundreds of years of combined experience in creating value.
In addition to mergers and acquisitions, we also assist in structuring equity and debt financing, the sale and leaseback of assets, and consulting on complex issues. In the process, we offer the quality of services typically available only to large private and public companies.
We are highly selective in the projects we accept, and only then, where we know we can add value. Since 1979, our principals have closed hundreds of transactions, in many industries, throughout North America. Our typical client has an enterprise value of $10-$500 Million. Our work has included projects for some of America's most prominent families businesses. Referrals from former clients, bankers, accountants, wealth managers, and attorneys are our primary source of business.
We are not affiliated with any commercial or investment bank, wealth manager, accounting firm, or other advisor. We are not a broker-dealer, do not manage, buy, sell or hold cash or securities or recommend investments, insurance or annuity products.
"It doesn't make sense to have access to smart, experienced people, not hire them and follow their advice."

Our consultants are highly-experienced former C level executives, MBAs and research analysts. We custom design a team for each engagement where we provide the expertise, capacity and bandwidth of much larger firms.
As a result of years of success, we are under no pressure to make a quick deal. Instead, we manage a transaction process that is patient, highly disciplined, focused, and without conflicts of interest. We offer an unpresented combination of expertise, experience, personal service and commitment to excellence. We excel at solving complex personal and financial issues unique to private companies and find win-win solutions. Our compensation is always in alignment with meeting our client's objectives.
