Unconflicted Unorthodox Unrelenting.

ArkMalibu is one of the few Mergers & Acquisitions advisory firms that focuses exclusively on sell-side transactions.

Why ArkMalibu

Senior-Level Service is Our Standard

ArkMalibu’s clients receive care and attention from our senior-level advisors, including former CEOs, Wall Street bankers, and former executives at Deloitte, GE, Nestlé, Loewen, P&G, and SAB Miller. We understand that even though you’re selling your business, you still need to run it. Our time is your time, we remain present and available throughout the process.

Loyalty to You is Our Livelihood

You need a trustworthy team for extraordinary value, not a conflicted bank. ArkMalibu represents sellers, unlike traditional investment banks that have repeat business with buyers, we’re not incentivized to encourage you to accept less than your company’s true maximum value because of future opportunities to represent those same buyers. We prioritize your maximum value without conflicts.

Our Unrivaled Strategy Sells Your Story

With our approach, we prioritize understanding, capturing, and communicating your company’s unique culture—the asset that can’t be duplicated. Our Four Boxes Analysis evaluates your operational, customer, and financial strengths, creating a compelling investment story for potential buyers. We identify partners whose goals align with yours and negotiate tirelessly on your behalf to secure the best deal.

Anchored to Increasing Your Value

ArkMalibu is tied to your destiny; we are anchored to the goal of bringing you unparalleled value while balancing the interests and navigating the personalities of the people involved. With our depth of experience and intimate understanding of the human dynamics at play, we coach you through challenges and help you avoid emotional pitfalls so you can enjoy your well-deserved prosperity.

“ArkMalibu opened my eyes as to what an investment banker should be. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with every step of the way. They became a true extension of our company and supported all aspects of our business to make sure our corporate story was properly crafted and understood by all parties—be that potential buyers, the final buyer, lawyers, accountants and everyone involved throughout our acquisition process. Their attention to detail, work ethic, communication, and ability to negotiate and navigate us through the entire acquisition process couldn’t have been better. Not only did they achieve a successful sale for us, but they became professional friends along the way who I would recommend to anyone seeking to sell his/her business.”
