A “keystone” is defined as the essential center block of stone in an arch that holds all the pieces together. Without it, the entire arch would collapse.
Keystone Business Advisors has sold over 200 businesses and has the proven experience and capability to hold the various aspects of a deal together to ensure a smooth transition. Each transaction comes with its own unique set of circumstances. Therefore, it is critical to utilize an effective M&A advisor who can provide solutions to complex problems, ensure the process is managed successfully, and deliver the desired outcome. Keystone is a full-service mergers and acquisitions advisory firm. We specialize in the sector of the M&A market that is often underserved, companies with annual sales between $2 million and $100 million. While most business brokers in Southern California focus on the sale of main street businesses such as restaurants, retail, and small service businesses, we direct our focus to an underserved market, namely lower middle-market, privately owned California-based businesses. On the other hand, most investment bankers in Southern California service businesses with a minimum of $50 to $100 million in gross sales and charge upfront retainers. In contrast, Keystone Business Advisors has developed a proven system for marketing and managing the transaction process for lower-middle market companies with a fee structure that is not due until the transaction is complete.
