The R and J Group
Business Broker

About Me

Company Information: The R&J Group has over 25 years experience organizing mergers, acquisitions and forming ESOP{s as well as consulting to businesses for all areas of operation. We represent both sellers and buyers and are ESOP specialist and a member of the National Center for Employee Ownership (NCEO). The R&J Group{s professionalism and high ethical standards have not only led to our success but have been acknowledged by having our Managing Partner, Jerry Shapiro, named 2007 Honorary Chairman of The Congressional Business Advisory Council. We are well qualified to analyze your business and recommend the best, most profitable, method for you to expand, find a merger partner or transfer ownership to an outside buyer or your own employees. If you are a potential buyer, seeking a business, we will locate and analyze businesses that fit your needs with the same professionalism and diligence as we do for sellers. Our partners and staff work with and consult to active independent brokers across the US and Canada. We are proud of our reputation and make the main focus of our efforts achieving the best results for our clients. We deal with businesses that we have analyzed and feel would be either good candidates for the ESOP Program, or that we are comfortable presenting to prospective buyers who we have carefully pre-qualified. When approached by a potential seller whose business is not "fine tuned" to the point that it is ready to be sold or qualify for the ESOP Program at its highest true market value we will work with them to bring the business to a position where it will. As ESOP specialists we can take a project from concept to completion in as little as 90 days. Our affiliated specialists, with their many years of experience, are able to minimize the costs as well as the time required to successfully complete the project. The ability to secure proper financing is, very often, the key to closing a deal. Our history of bringing well organized, quality borrowers, whether they be an individual, a group or an ESOP to lenders with whom we have worked for many years, has earned us a reputation that overcomes the financing barrier that most other organizations face. This reputation is of great help in completing many traditional mergers and acquisitions as well as ESOP{s that lenders would be weary of if presented by some other organizations. Background: Our associates have a mimimum of 10 years experience and our Managing Director, Jerry Shapiro, is 2007 Honorary Chairman of The Cingressional Business Advisory Council and has over 25 years experience as a business broker and consultant with over 40 years experience as a business owner. Our associates are Attorneys, MBA{s and Accountants with extensive business and Investment Banking backgrounds. Specialization: The R&J Group, at no cost to you, will gladly proform a preliminary analysis of your business and suggest the best exit strategy for your particular situation. If you are our client as a buyer we will search out a business that meets your requirements and structure the purchase to meet your needs. All inquires and information are kept in the strictest confidence.
