An unfair advantage to SELL or IPO your business, ACQUIRE or MERGE with another or RESTRUCTURE

I've done scores of deals and lead-managed every one of them; over 34 years evaluating hundreds of companies and financial operating scenarios, interviewing thousands of executives.  Business sales. Mergers. Acquisitions. IPOs. Restructurings.

With my focus and decades of experience, I've gotten some phenomenal results.

Now I am adding coaching, tutorials, and online courses to extend to a wider array of business owners, top management, board directors and private equity staff the unfair advantage of what I have learned as the accountable manager of scores of my own transactions, and very alert observer of hundreds of others.


For Me, the Success of Your Strategic Financial Transaction is Personal!

I thoroughly enjoy extracting for you every dollar of value from your business equity.  I love what I do, which is why I never promoted myself to "upper management" in my own firm.  I'd much rather work with you personally to achieve your goals than supervise apprentice and journeymen deal managers.

I teach in every engagement.  I teach YOU to make your own informed choices at every stage.

I've decided to open a polytechnic deal academy for a wider audience, because most business owners, board directors, top management and junior and mid-level private equity staff can profit in some significant way from the extensive body of  valuable knowledge I've accumulated.

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

to extend the benefits of 3 decades of my front line experience to a wider array of business stakeholders.

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.

Ceo of Elevated Careers

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.
