Calder Capital Sources Proprietary Deal Flow for Strategic Buyers!
Buyer competition, non-listed sales, financing limitations, personal and business risks: these are all factors that add to the difficulty of buying a business. We understand these complexities which is why we have created business buying services uniquely designed for corporate (strategic) buyers.
Most companies cannot justify the expense of having a team dedicated to business acquisitions. Yet, business acquisition, if executed properly, can be a great growth strategy.
Calder Capital serves as a buyside M&A advisor and provides acquisition search services to strategic buyers with over $3 million in annual revenue. Our services are best suited to clients who seek to complete several smaller acquisitions and who have well-defined size, type and geographic search criteria.
A monthly Retainer is established in a formalized acquisition search engagement. The monthly retainer is partially-credited against the Success Fees at closing. Thus, once an acquisition has been consummated much of the Retainer Fees are generally washed out.
The majority of our fees are earned upon the successful consummation of a transaction!
We generally do not incur many, if any, out-of-pocket expenses related to our buy-side clients. However, if significant travel is required we will request reimbursement. All requested reimbursed expenses will be pre-approved.
