The Process

Early in the business transfer process, Yarmouth Venture Group seeks to understand both the economic and organizational goals of the selling shareholders to determine if there is a mutually acceptable framework under which to pursue a transaction. This process entails executing a confidentiality agreement, exchanging information about the company and establishing an open line of communication with the shareholders.  Our Client is NOT privy to these discussions.  The prospective selling shareholders will know details of our Client, however our Client won't know anything about the selling shareholders until there is reason to introduce our Client to a potential relationship. Both YVG and the selling shareholder(s) will determine if there truly is a mutually acceptable framework under which to pursue a transaction.

We invest a significant amount of time to develop a thorough understanding of the company's operations and its market position prior to entering into an exclusivity period.  However, we will be fast and frank explaining our interest level.

Once engaged, we fully focus our resources on closing a transaction. Yarmouth Venture Group is dedicated to conducting due diligence in a timely and non-disruptive manner and has existing relationships with financing sources (both debt and equity) and service providers who share our philosophies. These relationships enable Yarmouth Venture Group to close transactions in a timely manner and on terms consistent with expectations.
