Confidentiality Agreement     

Trade Publications Links




At Paragon Ventures, we believe confidentiality is of the utmost importance.  Our procedures ensure that confidentiality is strictly maintained throughout the process.

Before any information concerning a business is discussed or released, all prospective buyers are required to sign a Non-Disclosure Confidentiality Agreement.  Then, in order for a prospective buyer to obtain a detailed business profile or an Executive Summary, the prospective buyer must be pre-qualified and also execute the Non-Disclosure Confidentiality Agreement . In some cases, we will require a financial profile prior to releasing detail about a selling company.  Only after proof of financial ability is provided and a Confidentiality Agreement is signed, will all relevant information concerning the business be made available to the prospective buyer.

Depending on the circumstances, the business name may not be revealed until the buyer and seller have a face to face meeting.  For instance, if a competing company calls regarding a similar company for sale, Paragon Ventures will not reveal the selling company's name unless a meeting between the buyer and seller is imminent, and the buyer has demonstrated genuine seriousness in purchasing the business.   



Buyer Resources

Buyer Profile Form

Before we can discuss details regarding any company which we represent and its financials and performance, we require that a confidentiality agreement be executed between the prospective buyer and the business owner. Also, unless the buyer is an officer representing an established or publicly traded organization, we will also need a buyer's financial disclosure which demonstrates the ability to consummate a transaction of the size contemplated. Most sellers do not offer any type of financing and require that buyers be properly pre-qualified prior to permitting any disclosure.

In order for us to help you in your search, the first step is for us to gain an understanding of the type, size and geographic preferences you have for the company you are looking to acquire. Our Buyer Pre-Qualification Form contains our non-disclosure form and pre-qualifier statement in a PDF file format.

In the event you do not have the Adobe Acrobat Reader to open this file, please go to http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html and download the free Acrobat reader. After you download this file, please print it out. Once you complete the form, and sign the attached confidentiality agreement, please return it to us via fax to 610-995-9633 (fax). 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 610-995-9695.
