Raincatcher and Final Ascent Announce Merger
Business Broker and Exit Planning Service Joining Forces to Provide Comprehensive Suite of Services to Sell Your Business
DENVER, August 28, 2018: Raincatcher, LLC (raincatcher.com), a national leader in helping entrepreneurs buy and sell remarkable companies, and Final Ascent, LLC (raincatcher.com/exit-planning), a national exit planning services firm, today announced the merger of the two businesses. This merger expands Raincatcher’s offerings to include exit planning, a unique offering for a business brokerage.
“Today marks the beginning of a joint mission to serve the entrepreneurial community,” said Marla DiCarlo, CEO of Raincatcher. Since its founding in 2011, Raincatcher has been a leader in the business brokerage business, but lacked the ability to assist business owners in the exit planning process.
“In the past, we could only help 20-percent of the owners who reached out to us to sell their business,” DiCarlo explains. “We had no way of helping the other 80-percent, whose businesses needed executive and financial polishing to interest potential buyers. We needed a partner that could help those owners.”
Raincatcher’s business broker team can now offer its clients a trusted service that can transform their businesses into remarkable companies, uncovering their hidden value with Final Ascent’s proven, 5-phased Reach Your PEAK system. Once sellers complete the Final Ascent program, Raincatcher’s accomplished team then works on identifying multiple buyers and getting the business seller its maximum value at sale.
“We feel this partnership is the answer the small business community has been looking for,” states Steve Conwell, president of Raincatcher and former CEO of Final Ascent. “We had found a successful way to prepare small businesses for sale, maximizing their value at exit; but had no partner to sell the businesses.”
Conwell explains, “That’s where Raincatcher came in – they’re leaders in buying and selling remarkable companies, and joining forces was the right thing to do for the small business community.”
Conwell and DiCarlo worked together in a previous venture, spending several years coaching and consulting with entrepreneurs. As accomplished small business owners, Conwell and DiCarlo believe small business is the heartbeat of America and every small business owner deserves their chance at the American Dream. They had previously vowed to find a way to partner together to serve the entrepreneurial community. With Raincatcher’s new business model, they are now able to rapidly transform small to medium-sized businesses into companies that are built to sell, and in turn help buyers find remarkable enterprises in which to create their own legacy.
