Value Maximizing M&A Strategies

Middle Market M&A

Gordian brings rich experience working with boards of directors, entrepreneurs and private equity sponsors looking to sell, buy or "go private." Our clients leverage our breadth of contacts, creativity and negotiating acumen to achieve advantageous results.

Complex M&A

Companies seeking to remedy flawed sale processes work with our team to replace or support their existing investment bankers.  We have vast experience conducting auctions to maximize potential value for the stakeholders.

Story M&A

Gordian works with "story" situations that require expertise in communicating the essence of the business in order to maximize value for the seller. We effectively create "optionality" and articulate a story that best captures the business value and growth potential.

Distressed M&A

Distressed M&A, including 363 sales, requires a special skill set to develop wide buyer interest and to maintain a competitive dynamic through closing.  Gordian excels in its ability to create and maintain a robust, competitive sales process to maximize value for the seller.

At Gordian Group, we are delighted to field these kinds of confidential inquiries.
