M&A Services for the Lower-Middle Market

Fahrenheit Capital Partners is a boutique investment banking firm that provides exceptional M&A transaction advisory services to privately held, sponsor-owned, and corporate clients in the middle market. We have a particular focus on advising family-held businesses, providing clear guidance at every stage of the M&A sale process to ensure the best possible outcome for what is usually the culminating financial event in the life of a business owner and their family.

We combine decades of transaction experience with a rigorous, multidisciplinary, analytical approach to deliver highly efficient, world-class transaction preparation and execution for acquisitions and divestitures in the $10 million to $100 million range.

In addition to executing sell-side M&A processes, Fahrenheit covers the entire continuum of buy-side transaction advice from pre-origination deal screening and due diligence to hands-on post-merger integration and transaction support.
