BUY-SIDE REPRESENTATION

GBS has worked with buyers and entrepreneurs since 2003 to facilitate the sale of businesses. Throughout that period, our Buy-Side Representation Services have been a major factor in the successful closing of deals.

We developed these services for prospective buyers seeking to purchase businesses through our GBS proprietary portfolio. In such transactions, we act as the “Dual Agent.” This approach has been so productive for both buyers and sellers that we’ve used it in over 95% of our transactions. 

GBS has helped many clients successfully negotiate the path to purchase . . . and we understand that the needs of prospective buyers may vary widely. To meet all those needs, we have developed a strategy and process that we customize for each buyer. 

Our far-reaching services are especially valuable to buyers experiencing the process for the first time. If you’re in this situation, the transaction may be more complicated than you imagined, but it is achievable. We’ll help you:

DEFINE YOUR GOALS We’ll work with you to articulate your motivation, needs and game plan.

UNDERSTAND YOUR ABILITY TO BUY  What will your resources allow you to acquire? Is SBA financing available? We’ll explore these questions with you.

FORMULATE YOUR STRATEGY — You’ll know what to expect every step of the way.

IDENTITY APPROPRIATE PROFESSIONALS — Our network includes qualified and experienced attorneys, accountants and advisors.

LOCATE ACQUISITION TARGET — We’ll guide you to the opportunity that best fits your objectives, lifestyle and budget.
