"For those of us in the merger and acquisition business, buying and selling companies is second nature. We live through transaction after transaction, routinely buying and selling companies" said Michael Schwerdtfeger, Chapman Associates.

"However, in most cases, the working group involved in the middle-market companies go through the M&A process only one time. Most entrepreneurs, CFOs and CEOs don't know what to expect from a sale of their company. Consequently, out of inexperience, middle-market and start-up business owners do themselves a fiscal disservice by failing to plan well for the biggest deal of their lives," Schwerdtfeger stated.

Vintage is presenting this series in direct response to the increase in clients' M&A transaction projects. Vintage provides both virtual data rooms and SEC filings of transactions.
