“We talked with several parties about potential acquisition but decided to work with Cogent because we realized that, as a buy-side intermediary specializing in the IT services space, they had a network of strategic buyers that understood the value of our business and had the capacity to operate it profitably. Even in the midst of a pandemic, they guided us through engineering a deal that improved opportunities for our team, improved service for our customers, and reduced stress for me and for my family. Their team was great to work with, and they did a fantastic job navigating us and their client (the buyer) through the process.”
If you own an MSP and are thinking about selling, the first thing you should do is review your books. Adhering to best practices will help your buyer see the value of your company, and the more straightforward your financials are, the faster your transaction can close.
