Founded in 1995, Brereton, Hanley & Company, Inc. is a boutique investment bank dedicated to maximizing the value and liquidity of privately held businesses. The firm provides expert merger and acquisition advisory, ESOP advisory, private equity advisory, and corporate finance services to companies within a variety of industries with revenues typically ranging between $10M and $1B. Our 20-year track record, trusting relationships, and concurrent execution methodology allow you to take the guesswork out of your transactions. Brereton, Hanley & Co. combines deep experience across the entire transaction spectrum (M&A, Private Equity, and ESOP) with a wealth of real-world experience. When selling a business, we manage a unique sale process that includes approaching strategic industry buyers from around the world and private equity buyers, while setting the stage for a sale-to-ESOP transaction in the background; this ensures certainty of close. Within the already ESOP-owned context, uniquely, our firm specializes in the follow-on corporate finance needs of mature ESOP-owned companies, including repurchase liability strategies, leveraged stock redemptions, growth through acquisitions, and the nuances of eventually selling the ESOP-owned company to an outside buyer.
