Our Process Begins with Appraisal
Make informed decisions by understanding the value of your publishing business for:
• Tax Planning
• Estate planning
• Financial restructuring
• Anticipating selling or buying
Following an appraisal, Gauger Media Service, Inc. helps you identify exactly what you’re selling and — in collaboration with your CPA — what sale parameters best fit your personal and professional needs.
Gauger Media Services then:
Collects and collates data from which the buyer can effectively identify what he is buying and from which he can conduct his evaluation.
Develops a logical selling strategy in concert with your accountant. GMS helps develop a selling strategy that interfaces price and terms with your goals and marketplace reality.
Prepares an Information Memorandum containing: (1) market and publication profiles including detailed personnel summary; (2) financial profile including a three-year history of income statements and adjusted cash flow/add-backs.
Takes you into market — introducing your publishing business to pre-screened prospects who are required to execute a Non-disclosure Agreement prior to receiving the Information Memorandum. Among other limits, this NDA prohibits buyer prospects from contacting employees, customer and vendors.
Negotiates transaction details — working closely with your accountant and attorney through successful consummation of the transaction.
