Understanding Business Owner Goals and Objectives

From personal goals like financial freedom and retirement to broader objectives like finding a good steward for a long-standing business and its employees, Madeira Partners works with clients to understand what will make a successful transaction.



Madeira Partners has significant experience in the valuation of privately owned businesses across a wide range of industries. We conduct an extensive analysis of the business, industry trends, and various other factors to best inform our clients as to the valuation range they can expect.


In-Depth Review and Compelling Marketing Documents

We work with our clients to understand the intricate details of their business and industry. This process identifies the areas of strength to be emphasized and potential vulnerabilities that may require additional support or analysis. Madeira Partners then creates a comprehensive Confidential Information Memorandum that presents the business in the most compelling manner, with a focus on growth opportunities and company highlights.


Identifying and Contacting Prospective Buyers

Madeira Partners accesses extensive resources and proprietary databases to identify and vet the most likely strategic and private equity buyers for a given situation. A final list of prospective buyers is approved by our clients to ensure a confidential, highly targeted process.


Competitive Process

In order to ensure a transaction successfully meets our clients’ goals and objectives, Madeira Partners runs multiple rounds of bidding and a narrowing funnel of buyers in a competitive process to draw out the best and final offers from the entire spectrum of prospective strategic and private equity buyers.


Negotiations and Closing

Madeira Partners oversees all aspects of due diligence and has deep experience in addressing the various issues that inevitably arise during a transaction. We represent our clients’ best interests throughout all negotiations to maintain the highest possible value and to ensure that final deal terms in the purchase agreement and other contracts are fair and reasonable.
