Business Sales

We'll Keep it Private and Discrete

We represent businesses for sale with the following profiles:

  • Manufacturing, distribution, and service companies
  • Annual revenues of $5-50 million
  • Closely-held, lower middle market companies
  • Companies located primarily in the United States with concentration in the Midwest
  • Cross-border transactions, primarily in Europe and Asia

Mergers & Acquisitions

We Have a 92% Success Rate

We assist companies that want to grow through acquisition as well as companies that want to spin off a corporate division or subsidiary.  We also work closely with middle market private equity firms, helping them acquire target companies in specific industry niches in their portfolio.  We can confidentially introduce you to these strategic buyers who may pay a premium for your company.  Our buy-side clients often pay our fee, making this a risk-free opportunity for you.

Business Valuations

We'll Help You Determine What it's Worth

We provide professionally written business valuation reports and opinions of value for privately-held businesses of all sizes.   Business owners desiring to sell are given a range of value before deciding to proceed with The Lincoln Group.  We also provide independent third-party valuations for lenders.

Machinery & Equipment Appraisals
