Sell With Confidence

Business Brokerage Services for When the Time is Right

Selling a business is a complex process that requires a deep understanding of proper presentation, buyer management, and concise attention to detail to get to the closing table. Ashland Capital guides clients through the complexities of business brokerage so that you sell your business with confidence.

Our Approach to Business Brokerage


The initial phase of Ashland’s business sale services are key to setting any client up for success. Ashland lays a solid foundation through market research, exit planning counseling, and a comprehensive go-to-market plan. These highly collaborative steps empower clients to better understand the path forward.

Business Marketing

Ashland works with you to develop custom materials that position your company for sale. These materials are always created in collaboration with you and approved by you prior to distribution. This phase also includes activities such as arranging meetings with potential buyers and managing secure document transmission among interested parties. 

 Negotiating Letters of Intent

Letters of intent are complicated and we know what we’re doing. Ashland advisors are on your side through the process of negotiating deal terms. We assist you in understanding the offers that come in and ensure that you secure the optimal letter of intent for your business.

Due Diligence

Throughout this process, Ashland understands that you’re still running a business. We manage the diligence process to professionally present your business materials in the most positive light for your buyers.

Closing the Sale

Ashland will engage with the various stakeholders in the transaction including attorneys, CPA’s, and others. We assist your legal counsel with the development of definitive purchase agreements and deal with the buyer and their advisors. Finally, we always enjoy helping our clients celebrate a successful exit!

Ashland has brought together all the service offerings in to a single, unified process: ExitView was created for small business owners who value excellent strategy and business planning, but achieving that on a budget. Exit plans come in many flavors and levels of complexity. ExitView was designed to take the most essential elements of costly large scale plans and distill those components to produce concise and relevant planning process.
