About AEGIS

 

AEGIS Business Brokers, LLC is an independent company serving the Northwest Arkansas Area, SW Missouri and NE Oklahoma. Our primary mission is serving as intermediaries for business sales-ownership transitions. We have served business owners and buyers in the Fayetteville, Springdale, Lowell, Rogers and Bentonville Arkansas areas from our founding. We now serve All NWA, Ft Smith, Arkansas River Valley Area, Little Rock, Springfield and Tulsa.


We have developed services in almost every aspect of small business sales-ownership transistions from exit planning, pre-sale analysis and planning, preparing a business for sale, business valuations, win-win ownership transitions, strategic acquisitions, mergers, franchise sales and franchise development.


Because we are not corporate owned we do not need to make decisions based on making numbers dictated by someone upstream that may have little to do with you, your business or your employees.


We pride ourselves in having the flexibility to respond to a wide range of client needs and the pricing of services to adapt to almost any client's situation.
