We take confidentiality very serious.  The business owners we work with expect their business broker to pre-qualify buyers interested in buying their business.  They also expect that the information they share regarding their business will be kept confidential.  The form below, is intended for Private Equity or Investor Groups who have expressed interest in a particular business listing from our Business for Sale page. 

If you're looking for a general inquiry on a business for sale please let us know here.  If you're a Business Entity please use this form or this form for Individuals looking to buy a business.

This form, or Confidential Information Agreement (CIA), is designed to ensure that you give your agreement that any information you receive about the business you're interested in buying will be confidential.  It is also designed to ensure that you have the finances that would be required to purchase the business that you have expressed interest in learning more about.  

If you have questions please contact the business broker you've been talking to or send a general inquiry here.

Read the  Confidential Information Agreement below and sign at the bottom of this page to submit your request.
