HOW IT WORKS

The block sale transaction timeline can be customized and adjusted using NPM’s platform and allows for seller controlled visibility throughout the bidding, IOI entry, and closing process.

  • Step 1: Select Buyers

    NPM sends a list of potential Buyers to the Seller for the Company/Seller to consider along with their own Buyer(s) before selecting which Buyers can review disclosures.

  • Step 2: Review & Upload Disclosures

    Company disclosure materials are uploaded into the NPM data room. NPM will offer to host meetings with interested buyers.

  • Step 3: Bidding Period

    Once the clearing price is calculated, buyers bid for a period of ten days before offer documents are prepared and sent to the Company/Seller.

  • Step 4: Settlement & Payment

    NPM will review documents and provide tracking spreadsheets with sell orders. NPM sends the executed documents so the Company can prepare tax withholdings and proceeds are remitted to Sellers.
