Our focus is in privately held businesses with annual revenues of up to $10 million because these enterprises are not well served by boutique M&A firms, private equity groups, or investment banks. At Klassen Ingalls, this is where our expertise lies. We always have a variety of businesses available for purchase at any given time. We can source businesses that are not currently on the market. Contact anyone on our team to learn more about those businesses that meet your unique criteria.
Each transaction requires a unique approach to planning, marketing, communicating, and executing. Every transaction requires that we perform on our clients behalf! Entrepreneurs need to focus on running their business. Our job is to make the acquisition or disposition process as efficient as possible.
There is no substitute for experience! We have completed over 800 transactions for both buyers and sellers in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, and Albany, as well as in most of the secondary markets in the upstate region. Encompassing over $200 million in transaction value and supporting the retention of thousands of jobs, we are very proud to play a role in the economic landscape of New York state.
