The Buy-Side Platinum service is the Cadillac of all buy-side searches. Serious buyers only.
What is guaranteed:
Guaranteed minimum of 10 proprietary leads matching target criteria. Leads are defined as businesses that match industry, geography, and size criteria and are willing to engage in a phone call or in-person meeting with our client to discuss selling.
Calder will produce a professional buyer profile to be posted on our site and sent to our network of sellers. Meanwhile, Calder's Buy-Side Team will create a list of all possible prospects matching our client's specific criteria and aggressively and professionally contact all prospective sellers using a 6-point touch sequence.
Prospects that do not respond or are not ready are followed up via a drip-loop sequence that ensures consistent communication and nurturing. Interested prospects are qualified through a phone call interview to ensure fit prior to any introduction to our client. Should our client desire, Calder is able to assist throughout the post-introduction process including information request, valuation, negotiation, LOI creation, deal structuring, securing financing, and due diligence.
Due to the intensity and time-consuming research conducted up-front, along with the guarantee, there is a ten-month minimum commitment. After ten months, the engagement transitions to month-to-month and can be canceled at any time provided a fourteen-day notice.
What it costs:
A monthly work fee of $5,000 (50% of work fees are credited toward the Success Fee). The Success Fee will be dependent on the client's desires for Calder's involvement post-introduction but generally starts at 5-7% of the first $1M of consideration and declines in a Lehman-like structure.
