Aethlon's Five-Step Process
Develop Persuasive Marketing Materials
Determining the best ways to describe your business from a potential buyer's point of view.
Collaborating with you to compile credible financial projections.
Highlighting opportunities to expand your business.
Identify and Contact Qualified Buyers
We begin by searching our proprietary database of potential buyers and industry-specific investors.
Identifying a roster of highly promising investors/buyers that align with your goals.
We then personally contact every party that we believe represents a potential buyer.
Foster a Competitive Bidding Environment
We present interested buyers with custom materials summarizing your business and its growth opportunities.
In follow-up discussions, we generate strong interest aimed at encouraging competitive bids.
Prepare Management for Buyer's Questions
We discuss with management key points of interest among the most-serious buyers and schedule management-buyer meetings.
We coach management in the best ways to answer questions and address concerns that buyers are likely to raise.
Solicit Indications of Interest and Final Offers
After management meetings, we help select a small number of buyers to conduct company visits and continue due diligence.
Frequently, those visits will engender an auction among interested buyers that we manage with the goal of attracting top value from bidders.
Finally, we help negotiate the most beneficial terms possible.
