Acquisition Advisors, formed in 1997, consults on the purchase, sale and valuation of mid-size U. S. companies. Most of our work is with profitable companies earning $1 million to $10 million per year.  

More specifically, we help owners of profitable U. S. companies sell quietly and professionally, for absolute maximum. We also help proven business managers become owners, and people and companies establish and execute business acquisition plans, identify candidates, and complete purchases. 

We know you have a lot on your mind, and have questions.  Let's get you some answers.
