Buy-Side M&A Advisory: Why work with Calder?
Buyer competition, non-listed sales, limited time for prospecting/pipeline building, and limited administrative resources: these are all factors that add to the difficulty of sourcing enough deal flow to be successful in buying one or more businesses. We understand these limitations, which is why we have created an aggressive buy-side M&A advisory firm focused on sourcing services designed to do the work that corporate, family office, private equity, and individual buyers know is necessary but often falls to the bottom of the priority list.
Calder Capital’s Buy-Side M&A Advisory is focused on bringing buyers proprietary, off-market deal flow driven by high-quality, high-quantity direct outreach to potential sellers matching our client’s specific criteria and by leveraging our existing network. Our team can source and execute deals nationwide, as evidenced by having completed deals in twenty-three different states to date. By completing all of the work in-house, our team can uphold professionalism and quality in establishing the first impression on behalf of our client, as well as guarantee leads and deal flow. Our team then flexes to our client’s needs, able to assist until the closing of the deal, or simply to introduce.
How Does Buy-Side M&A Advisory Firm Calder Capital Solve These Challenges?

Additionally, as requested, Calder will conduct business valuations, write LOIs, negotiate on behalf of our client, coordinate due diligence, and quarterback all steps to a successful closing.
