For most owners of a private company or a family business, a significant acquisition, recapitalization, or sale is like a high stakes game of poker. It often presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create financial security for generations of owners and their families. Experience often makes the difference between success and failure.    

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 experience, reputation, integrity, research resources, and commitment. 

At The Inman Company and our real estate broker affilate, Inman Real Estate Services, we offer these same credentials to private companies. Our professionals have hundreds of years of experience, domestically and internationally, plus former C-Level positions with public and private companies. We have served on numerous Corporate Boards and as leaders with Industry and Financial organizations. Our relationships are extensive and deep.

Since 1979, we have closed hundreds of transactions for a sale or purchase of assets, including real estate (managed by our Licensed Real Estate Broker affiliate). These transactions range 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. 

As a small boutique firm with 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 on meeting our client's objectives. We are compensated based upon meeting these objectives. 

We are independently owned and not affiliated with any commercial bank, investment firm or 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. We offer an unpresented combination of expertise, experience, personal service, and commitment. We are known for solving complex personal and financial issues unique to private and family-owned companies and develop win-win solutions.

In addition to mergers and acquisitions, we also assist in arranging equity and debt financing, the sale and leaseback of real estate, and strategic consulting. Referrals from former clients, bankers, accountants, wealth managers, and attorneys are our primary source of new business.
