What is Guided by Acquire?
Guided by Acquire is our white-glove advisory service that takes the effort and frustration out of selling your SaaS startup. You tell us your acquisition goals and we search thousands of vetted buyers to find you the ideal fit. Then we support you through each stage of the acquisition until you close at a price and terms that make you happy.
How much do you charge for guiding my acquisition?
We charge a 4% closing fee only if your startup is acquired. No upfront fees, no hidden costs. Your success is our success.
Do you help with the whole acquisition process?
Yes! We prepare your startup for acquisition, market it, and then find you the most qualified buyers based on your criteria. You’ll receive ongoing support from your advisor through every stage of the acquisition including negotiations, due diligence, escrow, and more. You tell us what you want and we’ll help you achieve it.
How Guided by Acquire works
You’ll work with a dedicated in-house M&A advisor to sell your SaaS business for the highest price and friendliest terms. They’ll draft an acquisition plan, market your listing to our top buyers, and help you evaluate and negotiate acquisition offers (IOIs, LOIs, and APAs). Once you’re ready to move forward with a buyer, your advisor will then coach you through the remaining stages, including escrow and asset transfer, to close safely.
Do I need your help to sell my SaaS business?
You don’t have to sell with our help, but as our advice is included in the closing fee you pay when selling on Acquire, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Founders who sell with our help get up to 400% more buyer interest, which helps to drive your price up. Our in-house M&A team includes exited SaaS founders who know the market and can help you sell quickly, easily, and for the maximum price.
Is Guided by Acquire available for all startups?
Guided by Acquire is available for SaaS startups with at least $100,000 TTM (trailing-twelve-month) revenue and ideally for startups with over $5 million TTM revenue.
