The Confidential Information Memorandum (CIM), sometimes referred to as the “deal book”, is the official selling document for your company. It contains much of the information a prospective buyer will need to make a decision on pursing acquisition of the company. This comprehensive document discusses the company’s products and/or services, operations, personnel, market, and financial information. In general, it takes between three and four weeks to prepare the book, depending on availability of the information requested.
