Business Sales

If you are a business owner thinking about selling, you have come to the right place. Selling a business is a major event that most often occurs just once in an owner’s entire career. Selecting an experienced, licensed business intermediary (also known as a business broker or M&A advisor) is a critical first step to ensure you have a professional on your team leading and managing the process while representing your interests exclusively. There is often a lifetime of hard work at stake, and selling is the time to monetize that to obtain the highest possible price and best terms that allow you to know you did everything possible for you and the ones you love.

Perhaps you wish to retire, to sell to family members or to your management team, or you just wish to move on to the next phase in your life. Regardless of the reason, we can help make this process as easy on you as possible.

O’Neill Advisors Inc. is a business intermediary whose principals have over 15 years experience working with private small and medium sized businesses, from the initial selling planning phases, valuation, through extensive marketing, negotiations, detailed due diligence, and final deal closing. Our people have worked in the M&A departments for some of Canada’s largest companies and professional services firms.

Family owned businesses are a special passion for us. In Canada, the vast majority of businesses are owned by family members. Over the next 10-15 years, it is predicted around 60% of these businesses will change hands, either through a transfer of ownership within the family or partnership, by effecting a management buyout, or by an outright sale or merger with a third party. In all cases, you want to ensure you are maximizing your return while limiting potential future liabilities once you are no longer the owner.

O’Neill Advisors specializes in serving small to medium sized family owned businesses, and we trace our roots back to our own family business founded over 30 years ago. To this day we remain family owned allowing us to understand the unique qualities that provide value in family businesses, and this coupled with our deep business intermediary experience will help you obtain the highest price and best terms for your business.
