As Seen On:

The 86 Group Business Specialists

Financial performance and shareholder value of your business invariably comes down to the quality of decisions — confident decisions made with correct assumptions and well-determined goals.

We don’t want you to leave value on the table.

We work hand-in-hand with our clients to determine the current value of their business, and to help them create plans to achieve their goal and maximum sale price when it comes time to sell or exit.

And for our buying clients, we develop ways to raise their equity stakes and obtain the financing to purchase a business.

We are here to help your business become more successful, whether it’s to get the maximum sale price, raise equity to purchase a new business or finance an expansion, purchase equipment or provide working capital – our only goal is to help you achieve yours!

In short, The 86 Group is committed to helping you achieve lasting improvements in performance and value creation. With our expertise in operations, growth and finance, together we can help you solve your complex business problems and achieve your dreams – with real world solutions!
