What We Do
The Yellow Fish Group provides a deal origination & deal management process for its clients and partners. We're a small (on-purpose), specialized mergers and acquisitions team located in Boulder, Colorado with a particular interest in the construction & contractor space. We offer guaranteed confidentiality, complimentary market valuations, fast decisions and superior, personalized service you just won't get from the bigger firms. Our team's core focus is helping well run, owner managed "construction services companies and contractors" sell, merge or finance growth.  Internally, we also offer a commercial finace broker capability and originate commercial loans, mortgages and equipment leases for our partners and clients.

Yellow Fish operates as an independent M&A Transaction Broker and does not represent either the buyer or seller as a fiduciary agent. Rather, we work strategically and confidentially with our clients to source suitable acquistion targets and arrange an initial introduction. And we only earn a fee if there is a successful transaction.  If you're a business owner with at least $500,000 in sales and would entertain an offer to purchase, a merger, an investment or a loan we should talk.

A Business Sale is often the culmination of one's life work and a big financial decision for the owner.  It doesn't usually happen overnight. Our aim is to quitely, quickly and efficently bring your transaction together.

Our Selling Process

Step 1. Complimentary Seller Consultation
We meet by phone, in-person or online and discuss your objectives

Step 2. Pick a Track----Internal vs Open Market Sale  
Internal introductions are made directly to YFG clients. Open Market introductions are confidentially made to outside buyers

Step 3. Share Financials & Determine Value
We'll sign an NDA if requested by you. Review your company's historical financials and propose a value range. If it's close to what you're thinking we can move forward otherwise we probably aren't the firm for you
Step 4. Track 1-Confidentially Introduce to our Clients Internally 
We create a few pages of company details (ie. executive summary)- enough to spark interest with prospects. We'll ask buyers to sign an NDA and review the executive summary. If buyer indicates a value range close to seller's expectation we will connect the parties for more detailed Q&A in both directions, to determine cultural fit and any dealbreakers.

Step 5. Track 2-Confidentially Introduce to the Open Market 
Together we define a successful engagement, agree on a finders fee and sign an engagment letter. Next we'll create an Offering memorandum for Buyers to read. Finally we'll contact prospective buyers and post the opportunity as appropriate

Step 6. Negotiate Terms /LOI  
Generally requires several rounds of negotiation to arrive at agreeable terms

Step 7. Cordinate Due Diligence & Buyer Financing  
YFG works with the buyer’to coordinate efforts for legal, financial, and operational due diligence, necessary to close the transaction

Step 8. Negotiate Final Agreement  
Final closing documents are written to complete the transaction

Step 9. Close Transaction and Transition Ownership
