Customized Exit Strategy
Bridgewood helps business owners and entrepreneurs exit their lifelong investment, achieving superior outcomes and premium valuations.   We work closely with our clients to understand their financial objectives and other goals, and then collectively develop a tailored exit strategy.

Experience Counts
Our professionals have decades of experience selling companies across diverse industries.  We take a hands-on approach to understanding every business, specific industry trends, the market landscape, and our client’s competitive advantages.  We present the opportunity to potential buyers in a compelling way that drives competitive interest and maximizes value.

Uncovering the Best Buyers
Working collaboratively with our clients, we utilize sophisticated in-house research techniques and resources to identify the best strategic buyers and investors.  Additionally, we have strong international relationships and long-term connections to thousands of middle-market private equity firms.  We approach each potential buyer in a customized way, presenting the unique strategic rationale and possible synergies.

Confidentiality is Critical
Maintaining confidentiality throughout the process is critical, and is at the core of our disciplined and discreet sale process.  We often assist our clients in developing a communication plan for the management team, employees, customers and suppliers.

Proven Results
Bridgewood’s sale process generates results and adds value well beyond our fees.  We are experts at bringing qualified buyers to the table, presenting our client’s strengths and opportunities, and finding creative solutions to complex issues.  We manage the entire process, from strategy development to buyer research, offering materials, marketing, financial modeling, deal structuring and negotiations.
