The Paragon Group’s experience spans decades as  M & A Intermediaries and Business Brokers, selling a wide variety of businesses. We have over 60 years of experience as entrepreneurs, owners of several successful businesses, and M & A Intermediaries/Business Brokers. Arnie J Lakeyn, our principal owner, has public accounting experience which serves our group very well when it comes to the financial aspect of the business sale.  We have an excellent track record of success when it has come to selling businesses that have engaged our services. If you are looking for a seasoned M & A Intermediary that can get your business sold, you will not be disappointed after choosing to work with Arnie Lakeyn and The Paragon Group. We do not charge up front or marketing fees and only get paid when you do, upon the close of the sale.

When selling businesses we work with a variety of buyers including strategic buyers, private equity groups, family offices, and individual investors.

We are well aware that selling a business is a major life decision for a business owner. We work diligently through the transaction to protect the interests of our sellers. We market businesses to a large audience of potential buyers most of which are housed in our extensive buyer database. We also understand the importance of confidentiality.

Arnie is proficient at preparing business valuations and I have prepared hundreds during my twenty three year career in M & A and business brokerage.

The intermediary is often the quarterback during the M & A process. When thinking about hiring an intermediary, sellers should consider deal experience, demeanor, confidence, business understanding, creativity, and financial accounting skills.
