Mergers and Acquisitions Advisory

We provide financial advisory services to owners and executives of middle-market building industry companies, in connection with a wide range of critical strategic and financial transaction-related matters. Anchor Peabody's goal is to foster long-term relationships with clients as their independent advisor of choice on transactions such as selling or buying a business, mergers, recapitalizations, restructurings, and other transaction-related matters.
