Mergers and Acquisitions

Professionalism, Confidentiality, Respect

At Roland, Criss & Co., Ltd, helping a client to sell or buy a business is approached with aggressive thoroughness, through testing and challenging assumptions. RCC constantly redefines the problem until a solution is reached. A FREE report on valuing any business to be sold or purchased is offered below.



If you own a business...



Retirement, illness, partnership breakup, or simply the desire to convert owner equity into cash through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) top the list of reasons why privately-held businesses sell.

Forming a strategic alliance with a larger firm, or selling only a part of a business in order to raise capital are also on that list.

Roland, Criss & Co., Ltd. has helped scores of business owners with:
