Start your exit journey with some of our favorite tools

Feel free to use these self-service commitment-free tools.

Are you personally ready to sell?

Vortylon encourages company owners to start by completing the Value Builder PREScore questionnaire to gain some clarity on that question.

The Value Builder questionnaire will help you begin to address that question.  We are trained to help you use the Value Builder System to increase your company’s value.

Is your company ready for due diligence?

Why choosing the right M&A advisor is critical to your success

Prior to forming Vortylon, we invested three years interviewing M&A advisors and brokers around the country. Without exception, their primary focus was on closing the deal.  That might seem like a good thing at first blush.  You want them focused on closing your deal because finding a willing buyer at the highest multiple possible is what you want. Right?  Well, maybe not.

The M&A industry at large has an abysmal track record. After closing a transaction, less than half of acquisitions survive beyond three years.  If walking away with a huge check on closing day is your only goal that may be okay by you.  If however, you care about your employees, your clients and the legacy you’ve built, you might see things differently. Furthermore, if any part of your payout is related to continuing success over time, then who you choose as your M&A partner will be critical to your success.

If you are one of those owners who has a vested interest, either emotional or financial, in the post-acquisition success of your company, you need a partner who shares that concern – like VORTYLON.


The full Vortylon Experience provides services for these three stages of the exit process.

Our passion for driving toward post acquisition success moves us to rethink the M&A landscape of services. Vortylon brings three distinct service offerings under one roof. These services are traditionally provided by two or three different consulting firms.
