Our Unique Approach
ABMI provides sophisticated advice to middle market businesses on mergers and acquisitions, capital raising, management consulting and strategic planning. ABMI’s professionals have a diverse set of business experience including law, accounting, banking, finance and entrepreneurship to help businesses with a wide variety of complex transactions. ABMI takes a unique consultative approach to the business. We understand the importance of relationships and realize that there is no "one size fits all" approach to raising capital, selling or buying a business. We take the time to learn about each client and tailor an approach designed to help each client achieve their definition of success. ABMI has been helping businesses in the Midwest since 1983. Over the past two decades we have earned a reputation as the premier mergers and acquisitions firm in the region. Our professional, client-centric approach is one way we differentiate ourselves in the marketplace.
ABMI has been in business for over 27 years and has two separate divisions: Middle Market M&A and Main Street business brokerage. The Middle Market team assists companies valued between $3mm and $200mm in the sale, recapitalization, valuation and assessment of their companies. More specifically, we provide the following services:
- Seller Representation: We represent companies through sale mandates with the intent to maximize value for the seller.
- Buyer Representation: We represent companies and investor groups in the search for a company or companies to acquire.
- Financing: We can connect ownership and/or management teams with debt and equity financiers, whether that be senior lenders, the SBA, mezzanine funds or private equity.
- Management Consulting/Strategic Planning: We consult for management teams and help guide them during times of needed outside counsel.
- Valuations: We leverage our relationships to get our clients the best valuation for their time and money.
We focus on the Midwest, but have had non-Midwest US and international clients as well. We have clients in all types of industries, but our focus is Oil & Gas, Manufacturing & Distribution, Business Services, Agri-business, Telecom, Healthcare Products & Services, Food & Beverage, Minerals & Mining, Aerospace & Defense, Metals & Steel, Animal Health, and Technology.
Our Vision: "To Positively impact lives with our passion for excellence"
