Our Proven Process
The Rua Transaction Process has an 80% success rate, much higher than the typical 20% success rate of other M&A transactions. Since 2010, Rua Associates has completed over 100 transactions in several industries including manufacturing, professional services, and distribution.
Phase One: Preparation (30-60 days)
In this phase of the process, we’ll do market research, testing, and a financial review of your business. We’ll also thoroughly evaluate your business’s readiness to sell and then review a strategic plan to bring your business to market. This in-depth preparation process provides a firm foundation for the remaining phases of the Rua Transaction Process.
Phase Two: Matchmaking (60-90 days)
During this phase of the process, we will pair your business with the best possible potential buyers. We’ll prepare presentations and showings for your business, review proposals, and facilitate correspondence. This will help us develop a group of buyers that best fits your business, which creates healthy competition and a stronger value.
Phase Three: Closing (60-90 days)
Once you’ve chosen which proposal to accept, we will schedule a closing, and coach you through all legal documents involved. We proactively facilitate everything needed to ensure a timely and successful closing.
You’re in Control
While we take a hands-on approach during negotiations right through closing, you always remain in control. We are your advisors. This ensures that you will realize your objectives and be completely satisfied with the results.
