We are so very glad to welcome Jeremy Gough to the DVS team!! He's been in the office since the beginning of the month and has already made our process more efficient and effective. 

Jeremy is our Analyst - accomplishing the number crunching and spreadsheet wizardry we were missing. He's tackling financial modeling, due diligence, and industry research for our clients.

Before joining our team, Jeremy worked in the business valuation division at BKD and, before that, in the commercial lending division at UMB Bank. 


Initiation included a visit to Top Golf to see if his swing is as bad as the rest of ours. Thankfully, he didn't embarrass us too badly. 

Jeremy and his wife stay busy keeping up with their 6-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son.

We need to finalize your CIM, because we have a client under an NDA to send it to, and if we can get to an LOI, they’ll go right to a PSA and close in 60 days!  

Without understanding what role each of these documents play in the dealmaking process, two things could happen:

1. You could waste a lot of time and money negotiating things that have little consequence
2. Or, you could brush past something that will cost you a lot of time and money down the road.

Neither of those sound preferable...

Avoid that fate and check out this guest post from Robert Drumm, an attorney at Van Osdol and a deal document pro.

Dig in to the deal doc alphabet soup
Watch out, world! Kevin and Ben have been out and about this month.  

On the 22nd, Kevin (left) was in Minneapolis at The University of St. Thomas presenting at the Common Good Conference about Social Impact Sustainable Private Equity and why keeping business ownership within communities is a good thing for all of us. 

Last Thursday, Ben (right) spoke to Kansas City business owners at an event with the Kansas Small Business Development Center about what buyers are looking for in an acquisition target. His key takeaway - bankability. Buyers use debt to purchase businesses most of the time so banks have to like the deal for the acquisition to be viable. 

These two are chock-full of helpful tips, broad perspective correctives, and self-deprecating jokes. Keep them in mind the next time you're looking for someone smart and fun to speak at an educational event. 

(P.S. If you're in the Dallas area at the end of July, you can catch Kevin in action at Vistage's Growth Through Acquisition series. We're almost done putting the presentation together and it's shaping up to be a good one!)
