Muir Equity helps owners achieve extraordinary earnings from the sale of their business

Owners of lower-middle market companies can earn more by selling 40-80% of their business now and the rest in 3-7 years after we work together to ramp up EBITDA and valuation.

Our most important differentiator: Putting your needs and satisfaction first

History has proven that our greatest success in closing new transactions and achieving superior returns happens when we work as a trusted partner, confidant, advisor and value-adding consultant to business owners and their management teams.

That’s why we put your needs and satisfaction first when we work to optimize your return on the sale of your business.

Extraordinary Outcomes for owners and companies we’ve worked with include

Cash payouts to owners of 3.5 times their initial stock value.

765% increase in valuation.
