Opinion of Value
Why is confidentiality important in the sale of a business?
When a business owner decides to sell a business, confidentiality is a priority. At Alliant, we believe that it is imperative for employees, customers, vendors and lendors to remain unaware of the sale until it’s completed. This protects the value of the business for both the seller and any potential buyers. Otherwise, businesses run the risk of losing customers, employees and vendors unnecessarily.
Confidential Marketing Package
At Alliant, our process includes a Confidential Marketing Package for your company. We then use a combination of print media, trade publications, internet marketing, direct mail marketing and telemarketing to reach a broad base of buyers.
