Ross & Yerger and Strategic M&A Advisors announce the creation of a strategic partnership between the two firms. The partnership has been created in order to bring Business Advisory and Sell-Side M&A Brokerage services to the mutual clientele of their respective firms.

Seventy-five percent of business owners plan to sell all or a portion of their businesses over the next 10 years. Dudley Wooley, Ross & Yerger’s CEO, stated “Ross & Yerger provides a large range of business services and resources to our commercial clients which are designed to reduce cost and maximize profit potential for business owners.

“Through our partnership with Strategic M&A Advisors, we are taking our value proposition to the next level by now helping clients identify and manage the top value-drivers of their businesses as they prepare for future liquidity events.”

Strategic M&A Advisors is a sell-side M&A brokerage firm that specializes in selling lower-middle market businesses for maximum value by utilizing a unique marketing approach that targets a vast marketplace of prospective business buyers.

According to Greg Maloney, co-managing director of Strategic M&A Advisors, “Many owners sell their businesses before they are completely ready and, as a result, end up settling for reduced value and less favorable terms in the end. Our partnership with Ross & Yerger will enable us to work with and advise mutual clients well in advance of a sale (total or partial sale), so that exit strategy goals and ultimate business value are maximized. We look forward to helping our mutual clients meet and exceed their liquidity goals.”
