Does Lexington provide a full-range of M&A services?

Yes. Assisting in the sale, merger or other disposition of middle-market companies is at the core of Lexington’s financial advisory services. Our advisory capabilities cover a wide spectrum of transactions from the sale of closely held family businesses to the acquisitions of larger public corporations in both sell-side and buy-side M&A engagements. From the inception of each assignment, our senior banking professionals assist clients in:
  • Thoroughly evaluating strategic alternatives

We strive to understand a business through the eyes of the client, and emphasize entering into the right transaction. Starting with meticulous analysis, we ascertain whether a strategic fit makes sound business sense and whether the price is right.

We are very process-oriented and our combined years of transaction experience are brought to bear in the proper positioning of our clients needs whether it is a buy-side or sell-side assignment. An overview of our typical Sell-side M&A Process includes:
