Sellers: Achieving Your Sales Objectives

The sale of a business is an extremely complex process that poses many pitfalls for entrepreneurs who, while experienced in owning a successful business, do not have the same level of experience in selling a business. 

As you prepare for the sale of your aviation business, you may be concerned about preserving confidentiality and maximizing transaction value. We leverage our in-depth knowledge of the industry to market your company aggressively to a variety of direct and synergistic buyers while maintaining strict confidentiality standards.

When you retain FBO Sales to help you with the sale of your business, we do much more than simply list your company and help you market it. We provide guidance and insights that will help you create, clarify and achieve your personal objectives, whether they include retirement, creation of expansion capital, diversification of assets, ownership succession, or lifestyle change.

Buyers: The Right Acquisition

Are you a strategic buyer seeking to enhance the success of your companies or expand your presence into different markets?

Are you a financial buyer interested in leveraging your existing expertise and resources and applying them as the owner of a new company?

Are you part of a private equity group seeking to acquire or invest in privately held aviation related companies in order to maximize the rate of return on your investment capital?

Are you an individual who wants to own a business and work in a field you are passionate about?

Regardless of what type buyer you might be, the experienced deal makers at FBO Sales understand your unique concerns and needs and will help you find the right deal and get it successfully across the finish line.

FAR Compliance

If you are buying or selling an aviation-related business, Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) will likely play an important role in the sale. With mandatory compliance a necessary part of due diligence in the sale of an FBO, and an extensive list of complex rules and regulations that will affect your transaction, there is much for sellers and prospective buyers to recognize and understand.

FBO Sales’ M&A advisors have the expertise and experience to help close your transaction, regardless of the size and nature of your business – whether it is a Part 121 operation with a fleet of Boeing jets or a Part 135 multi-craft charter operation.

To help you complete the compliance process, FBO Sales has assembled a team of business and aviation experts who bring to your deal significant experience on both sides of the table. Your team includes retired regulators who understand the applicable federal rules and regulations and can interpret them for your benefit.

Our expertise will help you avoid last-minute surprises, ensure that your transaction follows the letter of the law, and avoid costly, deal-threatening delays and potential fines.
