Business Brokers have typically focused on selling companies less than $10 million in size, although increasingly they are handling larger and larger transactions. They often represent the seller and their role is to find buyers for the offered company. They can be an excellent resource to find local buyers, investors who specialize in specific industries, or private equity funds. They are experienced in finding buyers and helping the company to negotiate and close a sale.
They also are a good source to conduct valuations.
