Our Measure of Success.

Since 1996, our team of professional business brokers has successfully closed sales on more than 850 businesses. Being the Southeast’s most successful mergers and acquisitions firm, we have created a marketplace for businesses ranging in value from $1 million to $100 million. Our numbers speak for themselves.

Work With Us.

In 1995, serial entrepreneur Brad Offerdahl sold his 3rd business and realized there was a need for a professional firm to help the main street business owner that doesn’t have $50,000,000 in sales and a board of directors running the company. 

Brad realized that he could transform his real-world knowledge into a business opportunity.  So in 1996, Brad Offerdahl and his son Jay Offerdahl started Viking Mergers & Acquisitions.

For over 28 years, Viking has focused on providing comprehensive business acquisition and business brokerage services with an emphasis on communication, confidentiality and closing sales.

Thanks to the entire team for getting the sale of Home Design Decor magazine over the goal line.  Everyone at Viking that I was involved with were top notch professionals.  Greg performed with determination with a great balance as the deal-facilitator and counselor for the buyer.  It certainly is a delicate balance.
