Practical Advice You Can Use

Buying or Selling a Business

  • Our experienced team of advisors will help guide you through the process of buying the business of your dreams or assisting you in the selling of your business.
  • For Buyers, we work with you to provide the necessary due diligence and assist in structuring the purchase under terms that help ensure you will be able to afford your new business and that it will continue to be a successful venture.
  • For Sellers, we understand that you have both a financial and an emotional attachment to your business, and that selling is not an easy task.  We will guide you through the process and work to help you achieve a successful exit strategy.


Assistance with Financing

  • It seems you can never have enough capital; when times are good you need more to grow, when times are tough, you need more to help drive out of the storm.
  • At Aterna, we understand the financial demands of operating a business, and will work with you to help structure the appropriate financing, under terms your business can afford.  We will assist in providing the appropriate forecasting, operational insight, and financial plan to help secure your borrowing requirements.

Business Planning & Forecasting

  • You need a plan, and we can help.  Whether for buying a business, starting a new division, purchasing equipment, or looking into the future to estimate various “what if” scenarios, a business and financial plan will help you to make the appropriate business and operational decisions.
  • At Aterna, we want to help you plan for the future, a future which does not always go as planned.  A forecast with various “what if” scenarios can help identify in advance potential issues, as well as opportunities to leverage your success. 


Helping You Manage Your Business Operations

  • Whether planning for growth, or helping you through a tough stretch, we will work with you to achieve your business objectives.  Running a business is tough, and will put an excessive amount of demands on your time – do you really have the time, knowledge or even desire to dig deep in your financial operations? 
  • We are here to help you grow and understand how and where your business makes its money.  You get to focus on what you do best – and we get to focus on our strength – which together will provide you with the best operational and financial picture to move forward.
