“When we received an unsolicited offer to purchase our company we didn’t realize how much help we’d need to successfully complete the deal.  We were introduced to FOCUS and know we could not have crossed the finish line without their help and advice.  FOCUS stressed the importance of having multiple buyers in a competitive situation.  We became believers when another buyer increased the price, causing the original buyer to drop out of the process.  Rich Mulcahy, my co-founder, and I both recommend FOCUS to other business owners without hesitation; they know their business and managed all aspects of the deal until it was complete.  Until you have been through such a process, it is impossible to appreciate the number of issues and details to be dealt with.  Having experienced advisors, like FOCUS, by your side is essential to your emotional and financial peace of mind.”
