Frequently Asked Questions

Selling a business is time-consuming and complex. M&A advisors manage the sale of your business from beginning to end with maximum confidentiality allowing you to continue to run your business as usual.

M&A advisors use their expertise to improve the price, terms, and ultimately, the net proceeds that you will realize from the sale of your business. 

Absolutely not. BIB Group is located in Fort Wayne, Indiana and is also an affiliate of the largest M&A firm in the nation. We are in regular, direct communication with hundreds of qualified & motivated, individual and corporate buyers, both domestic and international.


Determine Value: (Do you know what your business is worth?) 

BIB Group will analyze and recast your company’s financial statements to show true earnings to create the maximum market price.  We use multiple valuation techniques, knowledge of market/industry trends and comparable market data to determine the optimal value of your company.

Marketing Plan: 

In addition to an already extensive in-house database of buyers, BIB Group will create an aggressive, professional and confidential marketing plan that will reach far more buyers than anyone could manage on an individual basis. This in turn creates competitive bidding among a wide range of qualified buyers bringing a maximum sales price for your business.

Deal Structure: 

Business transactions can run into challenging hurdles that require creativity in deal structure. Having experience in this area is critically important and can be the difference between success or having a deal fall through completely.  Our deal teams understand your personal and professional situation, and will advise you on the most optimal deal structure that achieves your current and future requirements.

BIB Group will help you prepare and position your business to sell so you receive maximum value for your hard work.  Pre-sale preparation is critical to successfully sell your business.  It results in major benefits for a seller.

Preparation eliminates negative surprises to the buyer. We will help you identify any possible issues or risks and mitigate these risks before marketing the business to prospective buyers.

Preparation allows BIB Group to determine how best to position the company in order to have the most appeal to buyers.

Preparation creates credibility with buyers. Buyers quickly determine if a seller is prepared to consummate a transaction. From a buyer’s perspective, prepared sellers demonstrate a genuine willingness and readiness to reach a deal, and once reached, an ability to close the transaction.

During our over 35-year history, BIB Group has successfully completed businesses transactions with selling prices ranging anywhere from under $1 million to over $50 million. 

No, we do not. Our fee is 100% “Performance based”, we only get paid when a transaction is completed. 

BIB Group will help maintain confidentiality, presenting the business only to prospective buyers who qualify. Most business owners do not want their staff, customers, or suppliers to know they are considering selling. We secure confidentiality undertakings, screen prospects, and phase the release of information. 


Yes, in addition to listing and marketing businesses for sale, BIB Group is retained by a wide range of buyers actively pursuing acquisitions.
