New Haven, Connecticut – July 8, 2008 – Woodbridge, LLC., a leading middle-market mergers and acquisitions firm, is pleased to announce recent enhancements made to it website’s Engagements page. Now prospective buyers or sellers can see exactly where an engagement is in the transaction process.
“We’re excited about this innovative approach to keeping the market informed of where we are in our unique M&A process,” said Robert Koenig, president of Woodbridge. “Each of our current mandates can now be tracked online so buyers will know what phase of the transaction a given deal is in and prospective sellers can see that we represent serious buyers who are actively closing deals.”
Visitors to Woodbridge’s website can now find out when a transaction is in the following stages: Questions Due after receiving confidential descriptive memorandum, Indications of Interest (IOIs) due, Management Meetings in progress, Letters of Intent (LOIs) due, In Negotiations, or Under LOI.
“Business owners, in particular, will benefit from visiting our enhanced Engagements page,”said Koenig. “Owners will see this is, in fact, a great time to sell your company, and that deals are moving forward. Due to the weakened dollar, it’s a particularly good time to market U.S. companies to European buyers. We are seeing more European buyers step up and out-bid domestic strategic and financial buyers.”
Woodbridge markets U.S. companies to Europe via its Woodbridge Europe office in the Netherlands. Woodbridge is the only investment banking firm that produces marketing videos of the companies it sells — an innovation that is moving deals along more quickly. The company videos are helping to win attention from high-quality European buyers who receive the video electronically along with the confidential descriptive memorandum.
Woodbridge, LLC., an innovative M&A firm, was founded in 1993 to provide divestiture and acquisition services to middle-market companies.
