Your Success is My Success!

I thoroughly enjoy extracting realizable value from your business equity.  I love what I do, which is why I never promoted myself to "upper management" in my firm.  I'd much rather work with you one-on-one to achieve your goals than assign and supervise apprentice and journeymen deal managers to work with you.

I teach in every engagement.  I teach YOU to make your own informed choices.  Business sales. Mergers and Acquisitions. IPOs. Restructurings.  Evaluating Strategic Alternatives.

I'm opening a polytechnic deal academy to reach a wider audience. Most business owners, board directors, top management and junior private equity staff, lawyers, and accountants can profit significantly from the valuable knowledge I've accumulated through decades of trial and error.

To traditional engagement of our firm to do your deal, I am adding the following:

Michael Kane has the most experience of anyone you'll likely meet in making successful deals - an astounding range of business types, business conditions, and buyers.  He knows what's possible, and what is a waste of time.

Andy Laats

Chairman, Nixon, Inc.

Mike is like 4 or 5 board members in one person.  Finance? Yep. Ops? Yep. Strategy? Yep.  He's seen it all, but if you can come up with something he hasn't seen before, he can figure it out quickly.  Responsive.  Responsible. Solution-oriented, positive and calm in every situation.

Mike knows what boards/owners need from management and can lead management teams in that direction.  Mike can find and extract value.  His personal style and depth of experience allow him to be an accepted partner for management teams.

Dan Erickson

Kane teaches an M&A Master Class to everyone involved, if you're interested in learning (and if you are not, that's your loss).  He brings a unique blend of experience, process, discipline, creativity and intelligence that you're just not going to get from anybody else.
