Brandywine Mergers & Acquisitions, LLC is a boutique M&A advisory providing sell-side representation to owner-led companies.

BMA represents business owners who intend to exit their business and begin their next chapter in life. BMA clients are typically in manufacturing, distribution, and service fields with revenues between $1 and $25 million.

We learned M&A in both the Fortune 100 and entrepreneurial worlds. We have adapted that experience to help owners of closely-held businesses to have the same, high level of representation and advice normally reserved for much larger companies, all the while keeping an overriding focus on what is best for the owner(s) and those they care about.

Our initial consultation is complimentary and confidential. This assessment step will allow us to set clear expectations for what you should expect from this process including potential values, buyer types, timing, etc.

We will tell you the truth; what we think the business is worth, why we think that, what you can expect in this process, and what we believe is your best next step to meet your goals.

Your first step is to simply ask us…

I just wanted to thank you and James for all your tremendous help in closing this deal. It must be 10 years since we first met after your presentation at the Wharton School. I started the conversation suggesting my company was not saleable. You disagreed and it turns out you were right. I am looking forward to developing the technology we retained and maybe doing this all over again in a few years. If we do, I know who I will be using to represent me.
