The stakes are high when the shareholders of a business consider a significant sale/purchase/merger opportunity. For most owners of a private or family company, it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience with personal, and financial challenges.
Publicly owned companies have long appreciated the role of advisors and investment bankers in evaluating, initiating, negotiating, and closing a major transaction. In selecting an advisor, Boards consider comparable experience, resources, integrity, academic and professional credentials, industry expertise, and commitment.
At The Inman Company we provide these same qualities to private companies. Our firm and its world-wide group of consultants have hundreds of years of M&A experience, domestic and foreign, plus C-Level positions with public and private companies. We have served as members of numerous Corporate Boards and as leaders in Industry and Financial organizations. Since 1979, we have closed hundreds of transactions, ranging in value from $10 Million to $1 Billion, in many industries, throughout North America. Our work has included projects for some of America's most prominent families businesses.
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, and focused. 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.
We are independently owned and not affiliated with any other organization. We are not a broker-dealer, do not manage, buy, sell or hold cash or securities or recommend investments, insurance or annuity products. As such, we can provide advice that is unbiased, without conflicts of interest, and totally in the best interests of our clients.
In addition to mergers and acquisitions, we also assist in arranging equity and debt financing, the sale and leaseback of assets, and strategic consulting. Referrals from former clients, bankers, accountants, wealth managers, and attorneys are our only source of new business.
