Sell Side

More than a deal

BlueSky offers service and support that goes beyond simply managing your ‘deal’.  As business owners and key executives we understand that while the fundamentals of a business transaction are critical, there are other elements to consider.

Our service model allows us to allocate significant Managing Director involvement with each client to ensure the highest level of service and to allow you to rest assured that you are well advised through each step of the process.

At our core we believe that our successful firm is a byproduct of your success.  This is why we aim to curate long-term, robust relationships with business owners regardless of where they are in the business sale process.

A Unique Perspective on the M&A Process

Our sell side M&A advisory process takes into consideration both your need to maximize business value and your other, often personal priorities. As your M&A advisor BlueSky will closely manage your business sale process from very early on the process and often continue to work with clients on future projects or post exit opportunities.

The complexities of the business sale process require a diverse skill set that ranges from process management and financial oversight to complex negotiations. We understand that flexibility in our approach and process give our clients more freedom to do what is right for their particular needs.

Here is how our process is different:

  • Empathy First

    We take a personal, empathetic approach that puts our clients phycological and emotional state center state. After all, the business sale process is complex and often challenging.

  • Mutual Fit

    We are not retainer chasers. We look to align with a small number of business owners who can align around our mutual success. We put long term fit over immidiate gain.

  • Principal Managed

    Many firms rely on a slew of junior analysts and even interns. Not BlueSky. When we engage you work with the principal fully accountable for your process, soup to nuts.
