Companies sometimes invest (or stand to lose) millions on technology, data protection, systems and regulatory assurance, and executive searches that promise all of the usual benefits of Enterprise Management. Too often, they're spending money needlessly or seeing a lower return on investment than they'd hoped.

Meet the Team

Business Advisory Specialists

 

It doesn't have to be this way.

Bonadio is an ideal partner for Information and Data Enterprise Management and Protection, because our team has backgrounds in every relevant discipline—strategy, finance, accounting, technology infrastructure and every industry—healthcare, ecommerce, manufacturing, banking and finance, tax-exempt, public to government across the United States and abroad. We also have a solid, industry-leading partner in ProNexus, a firm that specializes in ERP consulting that produces meaningful results. Bonadio and ProNexus both offer an objectivity and expertise that help you mitigate risk, slash costs, boost your ROI, and sleep more soundly at night.

We offer a broad range of services within Information and Data Enterprise Management and Protection, designed to track with the way modern business is conducted—and its inherent challenges.

Bonadio Financing

The capital you need to grow. A partner who knows the market.

Bonadio Financing serves individuals and a wide range of organizations—public, private, non-profit—including those who may have unique financing needs. Our team has worked with financial institutions on a national scale, so we have access to a breadth of resources far beyond the boundaries of our local region.

If you're looking to start a business, expand your business, renovate your facilities, or refinance existing debt, we're here to help. We welcome the challenge of working with rapidly growing companies, asset-based borrowers or real estate developers. Likewise, we're here to serve businesses seeking capital to fund mergers and acquisitions.

A familiarity with all the players can be an asset when the time comes to raise funds. Our team is led by a banking veteran who has years of experience helping businesses raise capital and structure their financing needs. And from the moment we first meet, you'll find the relationship completely transparent. You'll know from the word “go” precisely what you can expect.

Step 1: Your initial consultation

Here, we'll sit down together, get better acquainted, and review your current situation, your financials, and your needs. We'll offer a frank assessment and recommend a way forward—and candidly tell you if we don't think we can make something happen.

Step 2: The discovery meeting and formal engagement

After we're sure we can help, we'll meet with you and your business partners for a more in-depth assessment. We'll talk about your creditworthiness, cash flow, collateral, and other related project considerations. And we'll share with you the most feasible financing options that we see for your business. If you're ready to move forward with us, we'll issue an Engagement Letter and get right to work.

Step 3: Putting together a loan package

Now that we know exactly what you need, we'll assemble a loan package and presentation to share with capital sources that we've identified as good candidates to work with you. We'll strive to secure a “yes” as quickly as possible.

Step 4: Review your options

We'll look over the financing terms, negotiate the best terms for you, and present the options to you.

Step 5: Final decision, close and fund

When you've chosen the financing structure you'd like to pursue, we'll gain a financing commitment, perform due diligence, and help you close on the loan.

An ideal partner for your fast-growing company

Fast-growing businesses sometimes face a serious irony: they need capital to meet a rapid increase in demand for their products or services, but they haven't yet amassed enough equity to qualify for the financing they need to continue growing. When your top line is growing faster than your balance sheet, Bonadio Financing can step in and help you secure the capital you need.

Business Valuations

Bonadio is proud to have under our umbrella the highly accomplished firm, ValuQuest, LLC, which enjoys a sterling reputation as one of New York State’s leading valuation practices. The firm performs more than 100 valuations each year, and has the experience and savvy to perform in-depth valuations for businesses of all sizes and in all industries.

As a business owner, you spend years building and investing in your enterprise. There are many reasons why you might need to obtain a valuation at some point. Part art and part science, a ValuQuest business valuation is built on a thorough assessment of factors that form an accurate picture of your company’s current standing and long-term prospects.

Why ValuQuest?

Unlike competitors, the team at ValuQuest is made up of business valuation experts who are also CPAs—as opposed to CPAs who happen to do business valuations. ValuQuest's reports are based on our CPA DNA, plus thorough research, fair assessments, and best appraisal practices.

The team can produce a business valuation on a project basis, working with attorneys, business brokers or other advisors. Or, they can orchestrate every part of the process. As part of The Bonadio Group, we have an unmatched breadth of experts and resources that we can bring to the table for you when you need them most—the right resources at the right time.

A trusted partner for one of your biggest transitions

From succession planning to legal documentation, exiting a business you own is a complex undertaking that involves many moving parts. The ValuQuest team will help you make sure your business and personal assets are both protected, and appropriately in order, for you to be confident and comfortable no matter what your next move is.
