Founded in 1987 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, BluestemUSA is one of the Southwest’s most experienced and trusted M&A business brokers. With over thirty years of operating experience and hundreds of successful transactions ; BluestemUSA is credible, established and capable of orchestrating your business divestiture or acquisition on a timely and confidential basis at maximum valuations. As M&A brokers and advisors, BluestemUSA also performs pre-sale business valuations, succession planning and pre-sale performance improvement strategies.
BluestemUSA is focused primarily on middle market clients with annual revenues from $2 Million to $50 Million. While Oklahoma and the Southwest U.S. are our core markets, in 2014, in order to fully serve the needs of sellers and investors across the USA, we formed partnerships with regional experts. This led to the formation and investment in the M&A platform of the International Business Group (IBG) and the Oil and Gas Advisor. These powerful strategic partnerships work together to ensure best outcomes for business owners who are selling a business. Our teams of business sale experts provide Bluestem’s clients with extended market access throughout North America, and the benefits of highly talented professional teams with experience, resources, and extensive contacts. Then in 2020, in order to further strengthen our breadth of coverage and service capabilities, we partnered with Easton Square, a cross-border M&A and capital services provider. So, whether you represent a family-owned business in rural Oklahoma,a multi-state manufacturer, or a distributor with a global footprint, BluestemUSA has the experience and resources to manage your transaction.
