Information about M&A advisory fees can be surprisingly difficult to track down. The lack of transparency makes it tough for M&A professionals to assess their own fees relative to their peers or learn about different types of fee structures they might not have considered.

Without an authoritative, up-to-date source of data on average cost structures, how can buyers and sellers make informed decisions about what is being charged and why?

That’s why Firmex teamed up with Divestopedia last year to publish the groundbreaking research report into M&A advisor fee structures within North America: Merger and Acquisition Fee Guide 2016.
