General Business Brokers and their IT Service Provider Clients

Business brokers pride themselves on being able to size up companies in many industries. With an understanding of the needs of their local market, coupled with insight into which underlying financial metrics contribute to a company’s worth, business brokers may apply their craft broadly. However for some industries, the typical business broker toolkit doesn’t apply so neatly, and in these instances it pays to partner with a broker who has specialized industry knowledge. Web hosting and managed service providers are two examples of exceptional industries, demanding an understanding of their unique technology landscapes. Why navigate this complexity alone when you can have The Host Broker at your side? With decades of experience helping buyers, sellers, and business brokers in the technology space, The Host Broker can work alongside you to deliver the best outcomes for your clients.

Tap into the hosting, MSP, and IT landscape

Exposure to more buyers

Finding the right buyer means being in the right place at the right time in front of qualified buyers. How do you know where to go? How do you even qualify what the “right IT buyer” even means? The Host Broker knows exactly how to market your client’s managed services or information technology business.

More Buyers = Better Valuations

The Host Broker leads a network of thousands of interested buyers looking for their next acquisition target in the IT, MSP, or hosting space. Even better, The Host Broker is a trusted resource for buyers as well, making the process smooth for all parties.

Better Valuation + Better Fit 

With more potential buyers taking interest in the company you are helping sell, your client is more likely to find the right buyer for their business. The right fit is about more than just the purchase price. Time-to-close, earn-outs, prior M&A experience and other terms are critical. The Host Broker brings confidence to the entire process, from start to finish.
