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 role is advising middle-market private businesses. In addition to mergers and acquisitions, we assist in equity and debt financing, consulting on issues related to shareholder value, and creating liquidity. We offer the quality of services typically available only to large private and public companies.
We are industry generalists, highly selective in projects we accept, and only where we can add value. Since 1979, our principals have closed hundreds of transactions in many industries throughout the U.S. Our client companies range in value from $10-$500 Million and include some of America's most prominent families businesses. Referrals from bankers, accountants, wealth managers, attorneys and past clients remain the primary source of our new 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.
