Who We Are
Persient is a middle market investment bank delivering creative, global take-to-market strategies for mature, profitable businesses ready for sale.
Our leadership team is comprised of investment banking professionals with decades of experience. We are also former business owners and operators that have been through the M&A process ourselves. This diverse personal experience on all sides of the transactional table translates into strong, highly compelling offerings that get attention – and results – for our clients.
Who we are not
What we do
You are more than a number. And so is your business. We understand that a company’s total value on the global market is only partly determined by financials and execution. Real premiums are gained in the precise positioning and storytelling of a company’s intrinsic value to a well-matched buyer. Our Promise: To put our unparalleled M&A expertise to work for your interests and not rest until we have negotiated the RIGHT deal for you. You deserve nothing less.
How We Do It
You know your business. We know M&A. There is no substitute for proven, trusted experience in getting companies across the finish line. That’s our specialty.
We design and orchestrate a customized M&A experience to gain maximum value for your business while easing the pain points of the journey. Every aspect of our approach is driven by the belief that 99% of success is execution.
We are serious about transparency and pride ourselves in a controlled market-clearing process that achieves growth, maximizes value, and ensures the successful completion of your transaction.
How We Add Value
M&A is our singular focus. Selling a business or bringing on new partners is probably not something you do every day. We understand how important it is to get the countless details exactly right. We give you peace of mind throughout the process, knowing you are armed with the most complete data and insights needed to make the best decisions to meet your goals. Typical offers have a spread as high as 2x between the highest and lowest offers – who you speak to and how you position the company matters.
Who We Serve
We are obsessed with providing exceptional client care, hand-selecting the companies we believe we can best serve with our approach to M&A advising. We focus on mature, profitable mid-sized private companies whose owners are looking for an exit strategy or growth option for their business. Our clients typically generate sales in the $10 – $200 million range OR expect to generate profits/earnings (adjusted for nonrecurring add-backs) in the $2 – $20 million range.
We have experience working with companies in a variety of industry verticals, including:
