Buyers Seeking to Aquire An Existing Broker-Dealer
All existing broker-dealers are registered with the SEC and FINRA; therefore, they have been approved to buy and sell securities. Nevertheless, one must be choosy when selecting a broker-dealer to purchase because a broker-dealer may only conduct business within the areas it’s registered. There are several broker-dealers for sale that are approved in various areas of business, so regardless of the nature of the security, an acquiring firm can easily find a broker-dealer that suits their needs.
In most cases, by purchasing a broker-dealer, a firm not only becomes eligible to sell listed securities, but also securities that are traded over the counter (OTC) and those that are eligible only for private placements. For financial firms, individuals, and startups that are entering a business in which they will be earning a fee or commission based on transactions or the amount of capital raised, registering as a broker-dealer is mandatory. If you are looking to conduct business quickly, then purchasing from a broker-dealer seller on our platform may be the way to go.
Broker dealer Mergers & acquisitions (M&A)
Broker dealer Mergers & acquisitions (M&A) are transactions in which the ownership of a broker-dealer is transferred or consolidated with another entity. Often used as a tool for strategic management, broker dealer M&A can allow growth or downsizing, change the nature of a firm’s business, or improve competitive positioning.
- An acquisition/takeover is the purchase of one business or company by another company or other business entity.
- A merger is the legal union of two or more corporations into a single entity, typically assets and liabilities being assumed by the buying party.
Related to broker-dealers, both types of transaction generally result in the consolidation of assets and liabilities under one entity. A deal structured as an acquisition may place one firm’s business under the indirect ownership of the other firm’s shareholders, while a transaction structured as a merger may give each firm’s shareholders partial ownership and control of the combined company.
M&A transactions involving regulated broker-dealers often require Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) approval under NASD Rule 1017.
