Assisting our Clients achieve a successful exit.

To achieve this, we quarterback our clients through the sell side M&A Lite® process.

Our Target Market

Chimera Strategies was founded on the premise that there is a hole in the market for advisory services for companies that are too large for the business broker and too small for the investment banker. These companies need the advice of an investment banker but are not big enough to garner their attention. Chimera Strategies fills that hole

Our Services

It is a seller’s market. There is a lot of money chasing good deals with the end result being higher multiples of cash flow. There are many types of buyers and we will work with anyone, but we believe the best buyer of a lower middle market company is a company in the same or similar industry in the same or similar geography. Our niche is facilitating industry consolidations for business to business sales.

Completing a transaction is complex, but measuring success is easy – understanding the expectations of what a successful exit may looks like and exceeding them.  To achieve this, we employ our proprietary investment banking process or M&A LITE®. M&A LITE® is a traditional investment banking process tailored for the lower middle market.

The process is led by senior professionals with a background and experience in all aspects of mergers, acquisitions and strategic advisory for the lower middle market

The Assessment

We believe this is one of our differentiators. We will take the time necessary to evaluate your business and understand your goals including what a successful exit might look like. We are interested in engagements, not listings and focused on success.

The Marketing Materials

We prepare the necessary materials to go to market. These include the Teaser, the Confidential Informational Memo or CIM, a Financial Analysis, Frequently Asked Question Documents (“FAQs”), the Management Presentations and a virtual dataroom.

Go to Market Strategy

We believe this is our second differentiator. In addition to the standard tool and techniques used by other M&A Advisors, we also utilize our “secret sauce” have to find the right buyer at the right price and terms and with the ability to close.

The Diligence Process

This is a time consuming and intensive process. We quarterback the process, advise you and move it forward each day.

The Closing

A successful exit for our client.
