The Raincatcher Process

How we get top dollar for our Tucson 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.
