Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 30, 2005
eBizBrokers (http://www.ebizbrokers.com), the NationÂs only M&A specialist for Internet-based companies, has been retained by Duncan Capital Group LLC to help build out a public company focused on high-performing segments of the online learning industry. The deal marks a significant milestone in the re-emergence of e-business investing, demonstrating the stability and growth potential of untapped market niches. eBizBrokers will identify the right acquisition targets from the thousands of distance learning and online testing companies.
ÂWe believe that the consolidation of e-learning companies will be financially greater than the sum of the parts,Â said Michael Crow, president and founder of Duncan Capital. ÂThe challenge is sifting through the many Internet businesses that exist and determining which ones are well positioned for market growth and our equity investment. eBizBrokers brings a deep understanding of how to evaluate online companies, and what will ultimately make one Internet-based business more successful than its competitors.Â
The virtual classroom is reaching millions of students and growing exponentially, as people go online for everything from real estate training courses to traffic school. The market is still highly segmented, however, with dozens of small- to mid-size, profitable companies providing an array of services. Duncan is partnering with eBizBrokers to capitalize on this opportunity, recognizing eBizBrokersÂ unique expertise in attracting and vetting hundreds of possible investments.
ÂDuncan is among those leading the trend to consolidate successful e-businesses across particular industries, and is just one such deal on our plate,Â said Michael Gravel, co-founder and CEO of eBizBrokers. ÂAs investment dollars flow back into the marketplace, Internet-based M&A activity is outpacing overall growth. Bootstrapped Internet companies are now reaching critical mass benchmarks and establishing themselves as a low-risk, high-potential acquisition targets for investors.Â
eBizBrokers, Inc. is North AmericaÂs first merger & acquisition outfit dealing exclusively with small to mid-market Internet-based companies. Possessing unique insight into the anatomy of an e-business acquisition, eBizBrokers provides a wide range of M&A services to both sellers and buyers with revenues ranging from $2,000,000 to $50 million.
