Sell-Side M&A

in Dallas, TX

At Exit Strategy Advisors, we don’t believe that there’s a general, one-size-fits-all approach to M&A that’s applicable across all sectors, enterprise sizes, and situations.

That's why we offer a boutique investment banking experience, providing highly specialized M&A services to family-owned and founder-owned companies generating revenues from $5 million to $100 million.

With a focus on technology-driven industries such as manufacturing, industrials, business services, and software/technology, we offer our clients a level of expertise that is unmatched in the industry.

90% of all businesses listed sell for
97% of the appraised value.

I recently had an overwhelmingly positive experience with Bill Nicholson. Bill and I have known each other over the years through networking in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Recently, I was looking for future opportunities and Bill worked with me to identify a franchise to buy along with helping me along with funding sources for the new business. I am well on my way to opening the doors of my very own business and I couldn't be happier. If you're in the market to sell a business or buy a franchised or non-franchised business, I highly recommend calling Bill Nicholson.”

I would like to highly recommend Mr. Bill Nicholson. He is a very professional, well-spoken, and kind business professional. He provided our company with a professional and complete business valuation, and did all he could to sell our business to an interested buyer. Although the buyer did not come through (and someone else bought it), we really respect Bill and his professionalism.

- John P.

Integrity, Professionalism and clear communication, these are the qualities that Bill Nicholson brings to the table. This is also the reason I referred him to a couple who was in the process of selling their million-dollar business. They had a buyer but were having difficulty completing the negotiations. In Bill’s capable hands they were able to smoothly get across the finish line and complete the sale to everyone’s satisfaction. I can not imagine going through a significant sale without him.

The Importance of Finding the Right M&A Firm

The team at ESA believes that to really add value to clients in the M&A advisory space, an advisor should have technical expertise within their industries of coverage. After all, how can an advisor effectively position your company with prospective buyers if the advisor sees no difference between a contract manufacturer and one with a proprietary product line?

As a true M&A advisory firm and investment bank, ESA offers a level of service beyond what one would find at a business brokerage firm; we don’t take a “shotgun” approach in identifying buyers. ESA is very targeted in developing its buyers' lists, which are unique to every transaction we execute. We only agree to partner with clients when we have deep knowledge and expertise within their sector, and we market to institutional-quality buyers and investors with the same high standards and rigorous diligence processes.
