The Hart Marx Advisors team brings to you years of Aftermarket experience and relationships. Because we will only represent one side of the transaction, you are assured there will be no conflict of interest.

We provide a full range of advisory services to buyers and sellers, equity investors and lenders active in the aftermarket.

SELLERS

Optimizing value as you sell your business requires far more than simply finding a buyer.

Preparation is critical and includes conversations with the owner(s) and key staff, as well as an examination of the financial statements and product/service strategies of the company; examination and understanding of the current marketplace; and consideration of alternative growth strategies to maximize the value of the enterprise.

Hart Marx Advisors will:

  • Develop a strategy and prepare your business for sale
  • Determine valuation and recommend an offering price
  • Produce effective offering literature
  • Research and source potential buyers
  • Negotiate on your behalf
  • Facilitate development and signing of Letter of Intent and Definitive Purchase Agreement
  • Support a successful due diligence process and closing

BUYERS

Acquisitions are driving the growth strategies of many Aftermarket enterprises.

While business owners understand that acquisition is often the most efficient and cost-effective way to grow a business, they often underestimate the work required to purchase and integrate the acquired company into the fold. Hart Marx Advisors can help identify and prioritize potential acquisition opportunities, make discreet investigations to find potential sellers, and bring qualified prospects to buyers.

We also support legal and accounting due diligence and provide advice on capital resources when needed. Hart Marx Advisors has a select group of finance partners experienced and interested in the automotive and heavy duty markets that help execute acquisitions, roll-ups, equity plays and financing-for-growth.

Hart Marx Advisors will:

  • Identify and strategically assess target companies
  • Determine fair market value of the acquired company and recommend an offering price
  • Research and source acquisition candidates
  • Provide investigation and negotiations leading to a Letter of Intent (LOI)
  • Facilitate signing of LOI and Definitive Purchase Agreement
  • Support a successful due diligence process and closing
  • Support successful integration of the acquired company
