Strategic buyers as well as private equity firms have found the value in employing The Enginuity Group for some of its most important buy side endeavors. You can only do so much in house if you truly want to attain strong steady growth by acquisition. And that means engaging an outside firm to supplement your internal efforts.

There are numerous business brokers who claim to provide buy side services and there are some niche M & A business intermediary firms who can provide a bit more comprehensive targeting. But, there is no firm like the Enginuity Group whose very existence today as a Business Intermediary firm was built on decades of defining, targeting, sourcing and processing target acquisitions. They built many large firms by roll up. And building a roll up requires extremely creative sourcing and securing skills. Perhaps that is why so many buyers turn to E|Enginuity to either supplement or manage their buy side programs.

EE's buy side fees are structured to provide both parties strong incentives to achieve the objective by basing the fee on a successful acquisition, but with nominal advances on that success fee on a monthly basis.
