About Martha Fouts:

Martha Fouts, M&AMI, is a highly successful Mergers & Acquisitions Master Intermediary who is frequently sought after as an entertaining speaker on topics relating to exit strategies, industry trends, and creative ways to maximize corporate value.  Less than 100 M&A intermediaries worldwide have completed the rigorous educational and deal closing requirements earning them the right to use the M&AMI designation.

Fouts began her entrepreneurial career straight out of college but not in the rarified air of investment banking and mergers and acquisitions.  “I learned my deal making skills from the bottom up selling secondhand American sportswear in outdoor flea markets in England in the early 1970’s.”

She has applied her street savvy sales and negotiation skills in every business she has owned from retail clothing, to apparel manufacturing, to T-shirt licensing, to sales and marketing and distribution companies.  Ten years of corporate sales experience in venture capital and private equity backed early stage healthcare technology companies added additional finesse. She continues to hone these skills today in her current role as an exit planning specialist and M&A advisor. She has survived no less than three recessions with her quirky sense of humor still intact.

Becoming a Mergers & Acquisitions advisor was a natural progression for Fouts.  The sale of her own company exposed Fouts to just how complicated, confusing and emotionally daunting the whole process can be.  Running a business day to day, year in and year out requires all kinds of stamina, skill and brute force determination. You can get into business by yourself, but it often requires a team of trained professionals to properly plan a successful exit.  Fouts does not pretend that exiting a business is cardiac surgery but it isn’t a simple financial transaction either.  Just like a heart surgeon has to consider his whole patient not just his patient’s heart muscle, a good exit planning strategist needs to consider the personal, emotional, tax, succession and charitable gifting interests (etc.,) of his clients, not just the purchase price of the transaction. Exit planning is not for the faint of heart or for advisors that don’t play well with others. A successful Trademark exit is more than a simple marriage between a willing buyer and a willing seller.  Careful advanced planning with an experienced multiple-disciplinary advisory team  and determined execution are the keys to a successful exit.
