Why iMergeLearn More About iMerge Advisors
Recognizing you have many choices when considering specialist m & a advisory firms to provide mergers and acquisitions advisory services we wanted to take this opportunity to provide a more personal insight into why iMerge is different. As you browse various firm’s websites you will note many similar menu items such as the type of firm, transaction pages with tombstones, bios of key personnel often with professional mugshots, white papers and perhaps testimonials. Furthermore, references from these M & A advisory firms, including iMerge, will always be exemplary. Lastly, with the entrenchment of social networks and various internet portals such as PE-Nexus and Axial Markets, most M&A firms are well connected to private equity institutions as well as other buyers. So what differentiators should you think about when considering iMerge?
Mergers & Acquisitions
iMerge is a niche boutique specialist firm. This distinct advantage allows a much deeper understanding of the sector resulting in less time you spend on educating the advisor. This narrow focus allows the advisors to gain far more knowledge of the players in the vertical thereby creating stronger connections resulting in more lucrative exposure of your business.
Associates or Analysts
Work to support our managing directors behind the scenes. As an accepted client of iMerge you will never be handed off to an associate only to have a managing director step in when the odds of getting to a closed deal look promising. Far too much is lost in translation both tangible and intangible by having associates weave in and out of the process.
iMerge is extremely selective on who we take on for clients, we do not tell you what you want to hear just to land you as a client and collect a retainer. Instead we take the time to learn more about your goals, objectives, your BATNA (best alternative to a negotiated agreement) and then mutually make a determination if it makes sense to move forward.
As the Directors inch closer to our 50s, work/life balance has become more important. Over the past decade and beyond each of us has put in many long hours spread out over hundreds of clients and transactions. Today, with this balance we accept fewer engagements allowing us to both dedicate more time to each client as well as for our families and activities.
“I could not be more pleased with iMerge Advisors. Selling my business was a relatively new experience and I had little knowledge about any aspect of selling. iMerge Advisors was a thorough and patient consultant throughout the process providing me first with an overview and then detailed information before each stage of the process. They didn’t miss a single legal, tax or process/practice issue. They exceeded my expectations in every aspect of the sale and got me more money for Staffing.org than I had hoped for, saved me thousands of dollars in legal fees and minimized my taxes.” Nick Burkholder, OnPerformance Inc
“I appreciate that your team did not run carte blanche with my business. Instead you looked closely at my operation and your relationships and brought me and excellent deal.” Joe Santilli

“iMerge’s team was exemplary in its hard work and dedication over a two year period to bring me an outstanding transaction.” Joe Vaccone, Excel Micro
“My experience working with iMerge was outstanding. Their tireless work ethic and ability to communicate outside of business hours helped expedite the whole process. I got the perfect exit, in one third the time I was expecting. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend iMerge for anyone looking to sell a Technology business.” Phil Santoro
“We wanted to thank you and iMerge Advisors for the stellar service you provided us during the sale of our business. We had previously used a more “traditional” local broker, who didn’t know what to do with our business, so it was refreshing to work with someone who specializes and understands the unique nature of an internet business. While other individuals told us that we were selling “thin air”, you were able to accurately assess the true value of our business and represent it clearly to potential buyers. We never dreamed that we would get multiple offers to choose from in just a few short months! Your professionalism in guiding us through this process was unparalleled and we will highly recommend your firm to anyone we encounter that is interested in either buying or selling an internet business. We cannot thank you enough for what you have done for us!” Brian & Wendy Houghton
“We really enjoyed working with the professional team at iMerge Advisors. They are experts in the field of Internet company acquisition brokering. We entered the process with limited knowledge and feeling very insecure at first. Michael and the rest of team helped guide us through the process of selling our tech business and were excellent advisors. I would recommend the team to anyone looking to sell their business.” Ben Fisher, TechPad Agency
“This was an excellent transaction for the shareholders and investors and I would like to applaud your team for the outstanding results.” Gabe Murphy, Abberation Ventures
