Work with us to sell your small business or middle market sized business. We pride ourselves on premium quality materials and a large network of qualified buyers.
We have a proven approach to finding businesses that match your investment criteria that are also interested in a transaction.
Goldblum Lentz & Co's offers a range of services beyond the transaction, such as mediation and pre-transaction preparation.
Goldblum Lentz & Co’s sell-side transactional emphasis falls into three categories: sale to a private investor, common for small-businesses; sale to an institutional investor, such as private equity; and a sale to a strategic buyer, such as a larger business in the same market. The form these transactions take varies between management-led recapitalizations and LBO transactions, privately funded growth capital financings (private equity, mezzanine and senior debt), along with corporate mergers and acquisitions, sale transactions and divestitures.
Bottom line: we help sell your business or achieve your capital goals
Sale to a private buyer
Common among small business transaction, a private buyer might be an individual or a small group that wish to acquire your business. The reasons vary greatly, though the most common are synergy with other projects, investment portfolio diversification, and what often amounts to buying a job.
Sale to a Strategic Buyer
A sale to a strategic buyer is a good solution for owners looking for a fast exit from the daily risks and obligations of their business. Outright sales provide immediate liquidity and diversification of wealth for business owners with limited or no participation in the continued growth of the business.
Sale to a Private Equity Group
A recapitalization structure through the private equity markets offers business owners an excellent tool to create liquidity while allowing them to participate in continued growth of the enterprise. After the transaction, owners have a wide group of expertise and available capital to further expand the business while offering a second or even third liquidity event in three to five years.
Other Capital Raise Options
Beyond selling your business, we have considerable experience helping meet our client’s other capital goals, such as guiding you through a competitive process to secure asset based loans, term loans, and mezzanine solutions. This often results in a far wider range of pricing and structuring options that can save you money, reduce lending risk, and help make sure you find a lender that is well-suited to your business.

Helping Position Your Business for a Transaction
In our pre-engagement review of your business we may identify business characteristics that will reduce the value of your contemplated transaction or approaches that can be pursued to get a noticeable increase. In these situations, we offer business advisory engagements aimed positioning your business for a later transaction with the best possible outcome.
These situations are always unique and the services provided are likewise tailored to your business needs. We have trained professionals on the Goldblum Lentz Team with considerable c-level business operations and transaction experience that will help prepare your business for a transaction.
This often includes (but is by no means limited to):
Partner Transaction Mediation & Arbitration
Often times business partners will seek to change their business relationship, such as a partner wishing to increase their business equity, bringing on a new equity partner, or a partner exiting the business completely. While these can sometimes be resolved amicably without a third party, bringing in a mediator is often recommended to avoid risks of ruining relationships, polarizing employees, and losing focus on operations during the process.
Goldblum Lentz & Co offers mediation services that leverage our experience working with entrepreneurs and a wealth of structuring knowledge to help find the right approach to create a "Win-win" for all partners, while simultaneously minimizing the impact on relationships and the business.
