I highly recommend Viking Mergers & Acquisitions to other business owners wishing to sell their business.
It was wonderful working with Viking. They brought the right people to the table that were ready to buy and who had the ability to invest in the company. The process was great. Viking moved quickly to find the right buyer and made sure that everything was signed off beforehand. Their research prior to the sale was outstanding. Communication and confidentiality were both extremely important to me when selling my company, and Viking made sure that I was completely secure. Whether you own a large company or a small mom and pop, if you’re seeking someone to sell your company, I would definitely recommend working with Viking.
Your role was critical in the process and I have been really impressed, not only with your knowledge of brokerage, but also your passion, professionalism and integrity.
I was not initially looking to sell my business, but was interested in finding out the market value. After meeting with Viking Mergers & Acquisitions and seeing the price my business was worth, I decided to list my business for sale. Immediately, there were qualified buyers touring my business and in less than 3 months after listing, I received an acceptable offer. I would highly recommend Viking Mergers & Acquisitions to all business owners.
