HELLO, I’M PAUL…

I work with both established business owners and budding entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs need to generate traction and mitigate risk in order to secure investment capital to grow their business. Both need creative solutions to divest or grow through acquisitions or mergers. I not only find the necessary solutions, I strive to take care of the people who will be affected during the process.

… And here is my approach

I am a catalyst for change and believe in the “Transition before Transaction” approach. As an attentive listener and experienced financial professional, I address every business owner’s situation in unique and comprehensive ways. I also anticipate and pre-empt possible issues or conflicts. I work with you to uncover and build value and then navigate the tailored process with an approach that accommodates your business’s needs.

VALUATION

Uncovering the golden nuggets

A business is only worth what a buyer is willing to pay. I examine all aspects of a company and advise on adjustments in an effort to maximize a business’s value. I never ask a business owner what they are willing to settle for. Instead, I always ask for their best-case scenario and then build the momentum to achieve it.

PREPARATION
 

Presenting your company in the best light

No one knows your business better than you. I help you analyze and present your company in the best possible light. I ensure your company’s most valuable attributes are clearly articulated – including future growth opportunities, ability to achieve future projections and scalability of operations – in order to fetch a premium price.

EXECUTION
 

Maintaining deal momentum

Whether it’s buying, selling or raising capital, every detail must be flawlessly executed to maintain deal momentum. To gain and maintain your trust, I negotiate every transaction and advise you of the proper procedures for procuring, evaluating and responding to definitive offers. This avoids deal fatigue and improves the likelihood of a successful outcome.

INTEGRATION
 

Your advisor, agent, confidant and connector

A successful acquisition is dependent on a seamless integration. This process must start well before a deal closes and requires input and expertise from a network of professionals. I act as your advisor, agent, confidant and connector from the initial decision to pursue a negotiated transaction until all possible issues or conflicts are resolved.

CUSTOMER SATISFACTION
 

Get ready to take flight

Throughout the process, I listen to your needs. I not only meet your requirements and expectations, I exceed them. When the ink dries on the transaction, you can feel confident in knowing that the legacy you worked so hard to build will carry on.
