Kasper & Associates (K&A) was founded in 1984 to fill a void in the merger and acquisition field which was particularly acute in the Fort Worth/Dallas metropolitan area, as well as in North and Central Texas. Our function is to sell medium-sized, privately-owned manufacturing, distribution and service businesses, and to assist potential buyers in finding and acquiring such businesses.
Selling prices of such companies range from $700,000 to $35,000,000, with sales revenues from $1,000,000 to $70,000,000. Companies of this size are typically overlooked or simply under-served by Wall Street and are too complex for local business brokers to handle. However, they are exactly the type companies K&A excels in representing.
K&A provides guidance to sellers regarding such things as current market value of a business, structuring the transaction, sources for asset appraisals, financially qualifying buyers, etc. We assist buyers regarding sources for financing, preparing a formal offer, etc.
Our firm’s principals and associates have many years of managerial and ownership experience. Such backgrounds provide the foundation for a business brokerage and M&A firm attuned to the needs of today’s business owners. Since its inception, K&A has facilitated over 300 transactions.
K&A’s merger and acquisition specialists’ skills in manufacturing, wholesale distribution, marketing, sales, personnel, new product development, and M&A activities help greatly in relating well to both business owners and buyers. Such expertise makes things happen for our clients.
In addition to traditional financial analysis, K&A has the rare ability to detect and evaluate hidden assets and liabilities of a company, such as strengths/weaknesses of key managers, the competitive environment, etc. This know-how enables K&A to properly determine a company’s market value and negotiate the best deal for both parties in the transaction.
