To find the perfect business, you need the greatest reach

Acquiring a business is a numbers game. The more you approach, the more options you have, and the greater the chances of a successful outcome both in price and fit. 

Our data demonstrates that for about 200 profiled opportunities you will successfully acquire one business. This can vary depending on your specific situation, but without choice, projects tend to stall or fail.

With both on and off market searching, using approximately 15 different data sources, with detailed profiling of target businesses, we identify the best targets for our clients. No stone is left unturned in our search.

Complete a successful acquisition

Entering into negotiations with several serious acquisition opportunities means you are in the driving seat.

It’s difficult to walk away if you’re only negotiating with one party. Do you start all over again? Or end up going with what’s in front of you despite concerns. It’s a place many end up in the endgame.

To be able to say ‘no’ with confidence, means you need to have alternatives. Having a number of options allows you to act smart and remain in control of the process.

We help clients complete their business acquisition well, on the right terms, and for the right price.


I contacted Firm Gains as I needed independent advice and guidance on the sale of my company. They did exactly as promised: helping me with my exit plan, and recommending a sale advisor to work with the right skills to help me successfully sell. Now, just about a year later, my business was successfully sold at exactly the level I was looking for. Thank You.
