Enhance Your Acquisition Capabilities
Cetane Associates can supplement your in-house acquisition team, ensuring that your acquisition makes sense, goes smoothly and doesn’t generate unintended consequences.
We Don’t Find Acquisition Targets for Buyers, but We Can Assist You With:
- Preparing a comprehensive and well-reasoned assessment of value.
- Analysis of financial data provided by your seller, including restating of earnings to ensure an accurate picture for you or your lenders.
- Projections that show the true impact the acquisition will have on your business earnings and cash flow going forward.
- Insight into potential issues that may arise as you integrate your new company and suggestions for ways to integrate successfully.
- Transaction structure suggestions that can minimize taxes, create common ground for you and your seller and bridge any negotiating sticking points between you and the seller.
- Support for your attorney and accountant who may not handle fuel company sales on a regular basis.
