TUSK’s 5-step proven process:

TUSK Partners is passionate about supporting business owners and entrepreneurs to run their businesses with the most successful practices and achieve their goals, whatever they may be.

1

01
Discovery

Discovery helps us to deeply understand your journey with a 60-minute call. By discussing your future, your goals, and your 5-year vision we craft a clear path with you to get there. This initial meeting helps us to understand your needs and determine if we are a good fit.

2

02
Education

During this phase, we educate our clients on the value of their business, the wide array of buyers in the market, and potential deal structures they’ll see. We ensure our clients make well-informed decisions regarding the sale of their life’s work.

03

03
Analyze

Your valuation is driven by your Adjusted EBITDA. Our team gathers all your financial and operational data (you don’t lift a finger). We study the trends, calculate the Adjusted EBITDA and craft your story for the market. TUSK ensures that the analysis is right – every time.

04

04
Marketing & Negotiation

TUSK crafts your unique story in a way that proves irresistible to the buyers. We run a swift and efficient sell-side process that drives a competitive bidding environment. We pit the buyers against one another to maximize your value and negotiate every aspect of your deal to your benefit.

05

05
Closing

It is not over until the ink is dry and there are 100 points to negotiate between a Letter of Intent and having the wires hit your bank account. From defending your EBITDA (and value) through the Quality of Earnings process to helping you navigate stacks of legal documents; TUSK is with you every step of the way. We simplify the complex and ensure you understand every aspect of your deal.
