Off-market listings display publicly available data. They may be off-market gems waiting to be mined away from competition.
Verified For Sale businesses are exclusively listed with Baton, and have gone through due diligence to prove their financials, and the Baton layer of scrutiny.
All of our verified For Sale businesses have submitted 3-5 years of actual financial data that has been run through a 6-method calculation, taking into account the latest market rates, and compared against peer businesses.
