I’m Buying Into a Company

If buying a business is hard, buying into one can be even harder.  Buying into a company is an important, complex, and difficult financial and strategic decisions.  One of the most important, and fundamental steps involves price.  When you’re buying into a business, you’re not just buying the business fundamentals, but also the relationship to the other shareholders.

The added element of the shareholder relationship complicates the pricing equation:  How are dividends going to be distributed?  What are your redemption rights?  What decisions do you have a right to make or influence in the company?

You wouldn’t buy a house without an appraisal, and you wouldn’t buy a car without at least researching its value online.  Why buy into a business with a blind spot on value?

You are much more likely to buy a share of a company successfully when armed with an appraisal that is:

  1. Comprehensive: Blind spots are deal traps.  Instead of wishing for knowledge, count on Arpeggio to provide it for you.
  2. Timely: Deal negotiations are dynamic, and circumstances change quickly.  Your advisor must be able to keep up with the pace or your deal will falter.
  3. Independent: Because of our fee structure, our interests are aligned with yours.  We want to make sure that you do the right deal, not just the first one.  Indeed, sometimes the best deals are the ones that you do not make.

A comprehensive, timely and independent appraisal of the target empowers you to negotiate from a position of strength.  Put Arpeggio to work for you, and secure the edge that you need for a successful outcome.
