Acquisition Advisors, formed in 1997 by David L. Perkins, Jr., 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, professionally, for absolute maximum. We also help proven business managers become owners. And we help people and companies establish and execute business acquisition plans, identify candidates, and complete purchases. 

Have questions? Of course you do. We know you likely have a lot on your mind. Might as well start getting them answered.
