With over 15 years of experience in the corporate finance industry and being involved in hundreds of buy side and sell side deals from all over the world, I found that the M&A playing field is currently not even. Often I have seen business owners going into a sales process without adequate preparation or without adequate knowledge how a sales process works or how a purchase price is determined. The outcome is disastrous and always leaves the business owner with less money than what he could get or in the worst case leaves him with a dead deal and limited options to sell again in the future.
A utopia focuses on equality and information not being exclusive. The objective of Divestopia is to open the world of M&A in order to level the playing field of small- and medium business owners who are planning to sell their business, without the need to directly hire expensive advisors.
I believe openness of information is crucial for a correct functioning society. The objective of divestopia is to level the playing field for small- and medium business owners who are planning to sell their business, without the need to directly hire expensive advisors. When all parties in a transaction are adequately informed any discussions will become more meaningful and the sales process will be more smoothly. Ultimately, the goal of divestopia is to facilitate successful completion of deals and to leave both parties happy.
