To buy, sell or stay the course?  That is the question.  

After years of growing a successful company, owners are often faced with the option of selling the company to an external partner/ buyer.  Or, after pursuing organic growth paths, deciding to grow the company via a strategic acquisition. 

At 2020, we help you find the right path for your M&A options. This includes providing an independent assessment of your internal and external sale options, the company's market value, identifying the right strategic partner, and effectively managing the M&A process to a successful close. 

Our  approach to M&A, whether for a seller or buyer, typically includes these sets of services:

  • Ownership Transition Strategies
  • Business Assessment
  • Market Valuation
  • M&A Strategy and Roadmap
  • Identification of Strategic Buyers/Sellers
  • Preparation of M&A Marketing Materials
  • Management of the Outreach Process
  • Solicitation and Negotiation of Offers 
  • Due Diligence and Purchase Agreement leading to a Successful Close

Unique to 2020 is our insider knowledge of the environmental industry and first-name basis with owners and CEOs.  We augment this our proprietary database on over 750 U.S. and international environmental and engineering firms, that includes profiles on company sizes and revenues, services and markets, geographies, ownership, and M&A interests.
