Buying and selling companies isn't limited to Wall Street.
Compatible companies merge, joining forces to serve adjacent markets or to become much stronger and more competitive than they could be on their own. Entrepreneurs often look to exit their business to pursue other endeavors. Family-owned businesses may have to decide whether to sell to a key employee, a third party, or to transition to the next generation. At times, companies reach the point where they need capital from outside investors to reach their full potential.
