Lower Middle-Market M&A Advisory

Corporate Investment provides sell-side M&A advisory services to successful lower middle-market business owners with values between $2 million and $20 million. You can trust our senior dealmakers to guide you through the often difficult M&A advisory process and achieve your goals. Lower middle-market businesses attract strategic buyers and financial buyers, such as private equity firms  and family offices. 

  • We have experience selling lower middle-market businesses with values from $2 million to $20 million in Texas and throughout the Southwest.
  • Our process is designed to identify and generate interest from multiple buyers, including strategic and financial buyers, to achieve the maximum price.

Trusted Business Brokers

Corporate Investment business brokers have sold over 400 businesses since 1984. Many of these were in the $1 million to $5 million sales price range, and are typically run by the original founder who was ready to move on and receive the maximum value for their hard work. These types of businesses are often acquired by financial buyers or individuals who want to run the businesses themselves.

  • Our business brokers have experience selling some of Austin, San Antonio and Central Texas' most well known businesses valued at $1 million to $5 million.
  • We have a large and highly-qualified financial and individual buyer pool that we have developed, who are actively seeking the right business opportunity.

Since 1984 the firm has guided over 400 business owners in many business verticals through the sales process. With offices in Austin, Texas, and San Antonio, TX, we serve markets throughout the southwest.

Our pleased clients

Fifty percent of my adult life was spent building Dustless-Air Filter Company...I can say with confidence that the decision to entrust Corporate Investment with the marketing and sale of my business proved to be an excellent choice...More than receiving top dollar for my company, their careful marketing to, and screening of, potential buyers resulted in the business being acquired by a team I am confident will continue the legacy I am proud of.

Kyle Gish

Owner, Dustless-Air Filter Company
Austin, TX

We chose Corporate Investment to represent us in the sale of the company due to their experience and reputation...Having the Corporate Investment team on our side of the table, in every meeting and phone call, with their financial knowledge really helped in negotiations. I don't know how you could sell your business without someone with their experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Corporate Investment to any business owner who want to sell their business."

President, Peabody General Contractors, Inc., Austin, TX

Corporate Investment provided a high level of service through each phase of my sale. From preparing high quality, professional marketing materials, to engaging multiple prospective qualified buyers and negotiating the letter of intent... I am 100% satisfied with the work, advice and time Corporate Investment devoted to representing me in the sale of my business. Hiring Corporate Investment to sell my company proved to be the right decision for me.
