The Opportunity Ep.39: Due Diligence War Stories from a Leading FBA Acquirer
On this episode of The Opportunity Podcast, we will be speaking with Jeremy Bell, the Chief M&A officer for Elevate Brands. Elevate, a leading Amazon FBA acquirer, has grown to 22 brands in a short amount of time and has leaned on the Empire Flippers marketplace to acquire high-quality businesses. Jeremy joins us to share his experience navigating due diligence on high-stakes deals and shares how these lessons apply to all buyers.
Jeremy shares how his past in the M&A space and pivoting away from brick & mortar towards digital acquisitions has lead to rapid development of the team and portfolio of Elevate Brands. Since FBA asset demand is intense, Jeremy clears up what buyers should look for in a potential acquisition and how to be clear on the value of a business early on in the process. He also shares his due diligence checklist, what a typical criteria list includes for a leading acquirer, and how sellers can exit plan so the entirety of their deal goes smoothly.
Sit back, grab a coffee, and get ready for a in-depth peek at the due diligence process for multi-million dollar FBA deals.
