While the M&A process is long and strenuous, I knew I had Stuart, Dan, Nick, and Chris on my side and their close attention to detail greatly reduced my level of stress. There is so much information that is being collected and verified, and The Aust Group was there every step of the way. The amount of research they put together to present our business to the potential buyers was truly impressive. Once I made the decision to move ahead with the buyer, they were always one move ahead of what was being requested. They made this process very manageable, and I wouldn’t have been able to navigate it alone. The Aust Group was right by my side throughout the process, and I cannot thank them enough for their guidance and expertise. If you are considering selling your business, I urge you to call Stuart and The Aust Group and experience firsthand how beneficial it is working with them.”
