WHAT WE DO

Beacon assists successful business owners and corporate management with the sale of their company by matching them with selected buyers. We execute business valuations, confidentially market the opportunity and negotiate the terms of the transaction, so that upon completion, our client’s are confident that they received the best price.

Valuations

Beacon provides independent and advisory valuation services in accordance with international valuation standards. We offer Opinion of Value reports and Chartered Business Valuator Calculation reports to meet the various independent valuation requirements.

Mergers & Acquisitions Advisory

In today’s dynamic market it is prudent to retain an experienced Mergers & Acquisitions advisor who will work for you.

Transactions

Serving Main Street, Wall Street, Bay Street, and the Square Mile, we offer our clients the advantages of a boutique investment bank with full-service Business Brokerage and Mergers & Acquisitions advisory services to meet all levels of transaction sizes.

How We Do It

Seasoned Professionals

No two businesses are alike. So it follows that our team comes from a diverse range of professional experience and business backgrounds. Our brokers and advisors join us from banking, real estate, corporate and legal industries.

Technology-Driven Practice

We believe that there are better, more efficient ways of serving our client’s time and resource. With that in the forefront of our processes, we employ the latest technology in all areas related to confidentiality, valuations, marketing, and financial disclosure in our practice.

Advanced Valuation Assessment

We utilize sophisticated quantitative methods and advanced algorithms combined with historical market transaction information and dozens of data touch points to assess the sellability of a business as well as its value.

Complete Confidentiality

Confidentiality is at the heart of each transaction and at every step of our process. We use secure and encrypted data rooms to store our client’s financial information and employ various technologies to ensure business owners can continue to operate while the opportunity is being marketed discreetly.

Global Marketing Strategy

Whether the buyer is a public company from the E.U., private equity from the U.S. or an investor group from Asia, our marketing strategy is global in reach. Our deals are broadcast far and wide on the most frequented platforms so that they have the most exposure in the shortest period of time.

Cutting Edge Processes

We employ a methodology in our practice that allows us to get more deals done in a shorter period of time. Once identified, buyers enter our process and are quickly engaged and filtered through. What remains are highly motivated and eager prospects that then enter our Buyer Screening regimen.

Buyer Screening

Finding the right fit is the key to success in every sale and transition environment. We take the guessing game out of the equation and only invite buyer candidates who are known, serious and capable to the negotiating table.

Structured Negotiations

Understanding our client’s needs and expectations prior to market contact ensures that our mandate is clear and our interests are aligned so that when it comes time to close the deal there is very little left to negotiate except for transition, timing and price.

Transaction Completion

Keeping the finish line in our sights is the end goal. Getting our client’s there is our process. Trusting Beacon’s knowledge and experience will ensure a smooth transaction and post goal transition.

Right from the get-go it was a pleasure to deal with Alex. He is very much of a professional in every way. His attention to detail and his ability to handle all situations that arose along the road to the successful sale of our company was very positive and assuring. We certainly appreciated his guidance through a process which we were unfamiliar with. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex and his Staff to anyone looking to sell their business . True pros in every sense.Thank you to Alex and his very accomplished staff.Larry

I worked with Will recently an a project. He was available for quick communications whenever I needed and was very easy to work with. When it comes time to sell my business, I will call upon his team and I'm sure the deal will go off without a hitch. Thanks Will!

We have worked with Beacon on a number of occasions. We find their knowledge of the sell side process, as well as managing the transactions well ahead of anybody else serving the private mid-market sector. We highly recommend Beacon!

If I could give more stars, I would. A friend of mine referred me to Beacon after the amazingly successful sale of their business. A staple company in Toronto, who I will not name but can say, you've heard of them. I have had a medium size business for 20 years. It was time to take the leap into retirement. I can't express enough how happy and FORTUNATE the decision to go with Beacon was. These are the only people you should trust with the sale of your business. Aloha 😉

I hired Beacon to help find a buyer to sell my small business. Alex and his team prepared a very professional prospectus/review of the business and I utilized their Beacon + program. While I ended up finding a buyer from within my own circle of associates Beacon provided literally dozens of leads and I would use them again.

The initial time I was looking for some business valuation advice, I had I actually left the company an initial inquiry late one night as I was browsing the internet looking for valuation service. The next morning before I could even get ready for work, I received a phone call from them!! Super quick with the response times. From there, Will Fischtein was extremely knowledgeable , honest and quick with his response times when I needed a business valuation. I recommend this company to others.

We wanted an honest appraisal of our business before we partnered with GAC to expand our business. Will and his team did an excellent job giving us the required information and advice we needed to make a sound business decision. They even helped us find the right lawyer to assist in the deal. Would highly recommend.

Beacon was involved in the sale of my business from valuation through closing. They showed their dedication and professionalism throughout the entire process. The sale would never have been completed without the guidance and perseverance of the Beacon team. I would recommend the services of April Harbottle and the entire Beacon team to anyone considering selling (or buying) a business
