Cornerstone Buy Side Services sources quality acquisition targets in the lower/middle market. We search throughout the country for passive sellers who are not actively engaged in the M&A marketplace, opening doors to unique and valuable opportunities within your focus area.

We assist business owners, first time buyers, and private equity groups seeking platform or add-on acquisitions in a proprietary deal flow.

Benefit from Outsourced Deal Flow

Competition is high, and sourcing deals through traditional channels has become significantly more expensive. Buyers competing in the M&A auction environment are paying higher multiples under less-than-ideal structures.

We allow you to free up your internal resources to focus on closing your transactions and managing your existing portfolio. With Cornerstone Buy Side Services, you benefit from these advantages:

  • Proprietary deal flow
  • Vetted, qualified sellers
  • Greater leverage for your team
  • Increased capacity to close transactions

Expand Your Deal Pipeline

As a buyer, you have two pathways to utilize our services: Proprietary Pathway and Pool Pathway.
Both give you exclusive deals and preferential access.


Engage our exclusive search services and be the first to evaluate new opportunities. Cornerstone Buy Side Services will increase your access to discrete, individual negotiations, placing you well ahead of the market. We identify and vet businesses that meet your acquisition criteria so you can begin discussions with qualified sellers, poised for action. Proprietary deal flow services are available as part of a flexible retainer/success fee package.


Join our buyer pool. A select group of registered buyers comprise a pool that has access to opportunities that have not met our proprietary buyers’ requirements. Along with the other pool buyers, you will be notified when qualified companies fit your specific investment criteria. Pool services are success fee only.
