About the Company

CFOB has been in business since 1979. CFOB will review your business operation and its financial condition and then apply industry proven methodology to assist you in determining the fair value of your company in todays marketplace. CFOB will not discuss any details concerning your business until a potential buyer has signed a confidentiality and non-discosure agreement.

CFOB will prepare a professional profile of your company describing its history, operations and all other positive attributes of your business.CFOB will guide you through the complicated and time-consuming process of finding the right buyer, negotiating the many details of the sale, and finally closing the sale as quickly as possible working with the accountants and attorneys involved in the sale. We understand that most privately-held companies prepare to minimize their tax obligations through discretionary decisions and we will assist you in recasting your financials to allow new owners to make their own decisions regarding discretionary expenditures.

CFOB conducts personal interviews with the buyer prospects to determine their individual requirements, goals and objectives, while at the same time discussing their financial resources available to purchase a business. CFOB schedules and attends all meetings between the buyer and the seller. We will also coordinate any meetings with other professionals if necessary and we stay involved until the closing of the transaction.

CFOB is a full-service business brokerage firm and can provide all the services and support necessary to complete the sale of a business to the satisfaction of the buyer and seller.
