Warwick, RI, United States, 2010/09/17 - Agency Acquisitions helps agency owners manage the complicated process of selling to or merging with another insurance agency - AstonishResults.com.
Astonish Results proudly announces the launch of Agency Acquisitions, a new division of the company that works with agency owners interested in merging or selling their business.
Selling an insurance agency can be a complicated process since there are valuations involved, bids to sift through, tax concerns and other activities that can be a drain on resources, potentially de-valuing the worth of an agency. Working with an acquisition services provider eases the burden of these processes.
Agency Acquisitions also provides opinion of value analysis and reporting for agency owners who may need a formal valuation for reasons such as: a partner buyout, divorce, or various tax purposes. Additional acquisition services available to insurance agents includes: due diligence, targeted acquisition search, and post-acquisition integration support, among others. Services are specific to insurance agencies, giving Agency Acquisitions an edge over typical business brokers.
“Not every agency can dedicate the resources needed to serve the modern consumer, that’s why there is so much consolidation among agencies and the acquisition marketplace is so hot,” said Tim Sawyer, president of Astonish Results. “With buyers everywhere, Main Street insurance agencies need someone to represent their best interests, so we started Agency Acquisitions.”
Jerry Pickett, VP of mergers and acquisitions, previously an agency owner himself and now in his eighth year consulting in M&A and Valuations of insurance agencies will spearhead Agency Acquisition for Astonish Results along with VP of consulting Stuart Ganis.
“We aren’t business brokers who also sell gas stations and coffee shops,” said Mr. Pickett. “We work only with insurance agencies because we have specific expertise about the unique value agencies have in their expirations, carrier relationships, lines of business, and other quality factors that go far beyond what a general business broker would comprehend.”
