Facilisgroup (PPAI 493664), a software-as-a-service company and partnering community within the promotional products industry, headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, has launched Facilis Connect, a service dedicated to preparing, assisting and facilitating merger and acquisition opportunities for its partners.

Facilis Connect assists Facilisgroup’s partners through the importance of due diligence, so all parties clearly understand their respective opportunities and risks, and if appropriate, can lend its expertise and influence throughout the entirety of the process. Through its network of partners, Facilis Connect can also identify potential partners for those looking to buy or sell, even hosting events dedicated to “matchmaking,” where several buyers and sellers spend time with each other in a one-on-one setting.

“Wherever our distributor partners are at in their entrepreneurial journey, Facilisgroup wants to be there to help,” says David Rehg, senior vice president of business operations with Facilisgroup. “If they’re looking to grow through acquisition, Facilis Connect is there to lend a hand. If there’s a desire to exit, we can assist at that stage as well. Essentially, we can help make the connections and introductions necessary for a business owner to confidently take that ever-important next step.”
