Yes. Retainer is waived for Sherpa is charged for Search Program Clients. But the success fees for the Sherpa program do apply if you want our assistance analyzing, negotiating, and closing your deal. Both success fees will apply at closing if you’re in both programs simultaneously.
The Sherpas are working for the Buyer and don’t want a conflict of interest where we’re paid more if you pay more, which is why we went with a tiered pricing structure based on size ranges.
The LOI essentially pays for our time negotiating the deal structure up front and protects our time investment if for any reason you can’t get financing or have to walk away because of any issues found in Due Diligence. LOI fee only applies if offer is accepted and countersigned.
Experienced transaction advisors that have worked on dozens of transactions buy-side and sell-side and can help you navigate the process. You will get a chance to interview your Sherpa before you engage with us and make sure they’re a good fit.
We help good people make great business decisions.
