Buyers contact Thrive Acquisition to set up exclusive representation to help them acquire their target.

A buyer has only one chance to make a good first impression with the owner of the target acquisition.

SELL SIDE: In some cases, sellers have someone in mind to continue their business but do not know if that individual is interested or able to take on business ownership. Sellers contact Thrive Acquisition to set up exclusive representation to help them prepare a private, off-market offer to sell. Some sellers think that no one would want their business, while others think that buyers are everywhere. Regardless of which end of the spectrum is true for that particular business, Thrive Acquisition can assist a seller candidate with a business valuation to form an opinion of the “Most Probable Selling Price” based on current market conditions and the attributes of that business or piece of real estate. A confidential approach allows preferred buyer candidates the right of first refusal before extending the sale opportunity to the broader community. Sellers count on Thrive Acquisition to establish a reasonable framework for price expectation, a timeline, terms, and conditions to set the stage for a successful transition.
