Our industry can really be broken into various levels of service and focus. Dillon Ltd. Associates provide advisory services primarily for "Mid Market" clients. ("mid-market" -$1,000,000 to $200,000,000 in sales)
Dillon Ltd. Associate services are provided as professional engagements. Each engagement includes client centered planning to address key issues unique to the client's needs. Frequently we can provide assistance outside of our target market, but clearly we are organized, structured and focused on "mid-market" services.
Advisers on Merger and Acquisitions / Intermediaries DILLON LTD. positions in the "middle market" for business transfer. Our focus is on the specific needs and goals of business owners whose businesses might have from $1,000,000 to $200,000,000 in sales. Our firm does not pursue a high quantity of "listings". We engage clients on a selected basis. Our business model is designed more from a business consultation and professional service perspective. While we do have clients who are outside of our target range, we are clearly organized, structured and focused on serving clients in the mid-market arena.
Business Brokers We find that many Business Brokerage firms are focused on "main-street" businesses. This focus frequently results in working with companies that have sales of less than $1,000,000. Companies in this category might include car washes, liquor stores, maid services, laundry services etc. Many fine businesses are available in this realm of entrepreneurial America. Many business brokerage firms follow a "real estate" business model. A key objective in this business model is to secure a high number of "listings" of businesses, which either are or "might be" for sale.
Investment Bankers Investment Banking firms typically serve many roles for their clients - and are most frequently aimed at the "wall-street" end of the business spectrum. Investment Bankers frequently deal with companies who are public or who are positioning to go public. Companies served by the Investment Banking community might have sales of $50,000,000 to $1,000,000,000.
