Business brokerage and M&A services for Orlando and surrounding areas

Orlando is an attractive destination for entrepreneurs and companies seeking growth opportunities. Located in the heart of Florida, it offers a diverse and thriving economy supported by various sectors such as tourism, technology, healthcare, and aerospace.

Orlando has a booming tourism industry. The city is home to world-renowned theme parks like Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort, and SeaWorld Orlando, attracting millions of visitors annually. This strong tourist presence creates numerous business opportunities in the hospitality, entertainment, and retail sectors.

Recently, Orlando has emerged as a hub for technology and innovation. The city hosts a growing number of tech companies and startups, with a particular focus on digital media, simulation, and software development. The presence of research institutions such as the University of Central Florida and the Florida High Tech Corridor further fuels the technological advancements in the area.

Another key contributor to the business climate is the aerospace industry. Orlando is home to the Kennedy Space Center, the launch site for NASA’s space missions. This proximity to space exploration activities attracts aerospace companies and fosters innovation in the sector.

Orlando also offers a favorable tax environment for businesses. Florida does not have a state income tax, providing cost advantages for companies and employees. The city government has also implemented initiatives to support local entrepreneurship, including business incubators, accelerators, and networking events.

The city’s economic vitality makes it an enticing destination for companies and entrepreneurs looking to establish or expand their operations.

The Raincatcher Process

How we get top dollar for our Orlando clients

Sell-side due diligence

Due diligence is traditionally done by business buyers and not business brokers. However, our comprehensive sell-side process includes a diligence process before we bring a business to market. 

Our comprehensive diligence process is designed to drive the highest value for the business owner as buyers know that there won’t be any skeletons in the closet once they submit an offer and start spending money on legal and financial diligence.

Specially designed brokerage or M&A auction process

Depending on the size of your business and industry your company operates in, we may recommend a traditional brokerage process with a listing price. Or, a competitive auction process with buyers submitting the price and terms for negotiation. 

Our buyer list is comprehensive and will be tailored to include (or exclude) and participants in your industry who may make great strategic buyers or who you want to avoid knowing the business is on the market.

Short-listing finalists

It isn’t uncommon for strong, sizable companies to get 5+ indications of interest (soft offers). We’ll then validate those buyer groups, attend dinners where they meet out clients, prepare further data on the business and negotiate the deal terms that buyers will propose in their final offer.

Negotiate LOI terms and facilitate diligence

Once LOI’s have been received from potential buyers we work with our clients to select the most attractive offer before executing the exclusive LOI.

It’s common for diligence to take 60-90 days before closing. This requires a significant time commitment from all parties. Additionally, final deal points are negotiated and contested during this period.

Business Broker FAQs

We aim to provide complete transparency to our clients to help illuminate what can prove to be a complicated process of selling their business.

How Long is the Process to Sell A Business

Most of our clients are lower middle-market companies ($500k – $10M in EBITDA). Clients in this size range typically benefit from a full auction process as it will drive multiple bids for their business. This process takes 7-9 months on average.

Is The Selling Process Confidential?

Yes. We make every prospective buyer register with us, sign an NDA and go through a vetting process before they ever see the name of a business that is listed for sale.

How Many Companies Do You Sell Per Year?

We work as partners or as teams of three on most of our clients deals. On the average year each member of our team will be a part of 4-6 successful closings.

How Do Business Brokers Get Paid?

Like most business brokers, we charge a small retainer when signing a client on, but primarily get paid by charging a success fee that is a percentage of what we are able to sell the business for. This fee varies based on the size of the business, how quickly it will sell, how much preparation work and sell-side due diligence will be required from us, etc.
