Business Advisory Services
In one interesting instance, the Sullivan & Company team performed a due diligence engagement for a client that led to the acquisition of an out-of-state manufacturing company. We negotiated the purchase-and-sale agreement and provided the requisite advice during the ownership of the company.
A few years later, we represented this client on the sale of the business at a price approximately ten (10) times the original purchase price. The acquiring company experience financial problems, and within three years, we were called upon to represent our client in reacquiring the business.
When the client decided to sell the company a second time, Sullivan & Company was there. The ultimate sales price: close to twenty times the original purchase price.
Sullivan & Company provides clients with the management and consulting services needed to successfully compete in today's global marketplace.
We offer a wide range of consultative services to assist our clients with tax planning, bank financing, costing, mergers and acquisition strategies, precious metals and inventory controls, and other critical components of commerce and operations. We provide recommendations for automated accounting and information systems. We help emerging business refine their business plans and find investors, projecting profits and anticipating the tax incentives and ramifications along the way.
Examples of clients we have advised include:
• … a major RI manufacturer whom we helped successfully sell its company in a multi-million dollar deal in which stockholders realized value far beyond what they expected due, in part, to careful planning, negotiations and timing.
• … a manufacturer navigating a change in market strategy that resulted in $75 million of growth in sales and also raised profit margins. The company established an advisory board, formed a foreign affiliate that resulted in a lower-priced supply chain, and minimized exposure to foreign taxes.
• … a start-up company with sales that increased to $20 million over a five-year period and, following our recommended tax strategies, did not pay any taxes for the first three years of business, saving over $1 million.
