In it for the long term

Selling a business is usually a once in a lifetime event. Our process makes the experience as simple, straightforward and transparent as possible.

If your business is solid and a good match with our other portfolio companies, we’ll buy a majority stake (minimum 80%) or take on full ownership. We make sure any deal is mutually beneficial — good for you and for us.

After we buy an agribusiness, our role is to maintain solid governance and keep the balance sheet strong. We rely on dedicated operational teams and results-minded general managers to handle the day-to-day business.

Because all our companies are seasonal businesses with different peaks throughout the year, they balance each other out and provide steady revenues across the calendar. That reduces risk, maximizes long-term success and supports our goal of contributing to a strong and vibrant North American agriculture sector.

Is Your Agribusiness a Fit?

We’re looking for companies we know we can sustain for years to come. If you meet these criteria, your business may be ideal for Market Maker Agriculture.

Your Exit, Your Way

Selling to Market Maker Agriculture is your opportunity to:

  • Realize the value of your company
  • Benefit from a flexible process to arrive at a deal that’s right for you
  • Preserve your company’s status in the community and the value and history you’ve built
  • Hand off to a buyer who’s committed to seeing your business continue to succeed in the long term

If you are an angel, seed or other early investor with a majority stake and seeking to exit, we can buy your shares in a transparent process that meets your goals and ours.
