Rapt is a middle market intermediary firm involved in commercial finance, business brokering, valuations, and planning. Our company name, Rapt, was chosen to convey our deep commitment to providing our complete, undivided attention to our task. We are professionals who approach each of our engagements with Intensity, Integrity, Fairness and Honesty.

Our basic strategy is to negotiate on merits and conduct principled negotiations, requiring that both parties negotiate on objective standards that focus on interests and not positions. This strategy is best accomplished by presenting mutually advantageous options (“win-win” options) that make it easier to reach a conclusion. In our experience, this expedites the process and leads to successful negotiations that are acceptable to both sides.

Our relationship with the owner of a privately held company is a highly personalized hands-on service. We do not hand off work to junior associates once an agreement has been signed to represent a client company. We work closely with owners and their advisors from the beginning to gain an in-depth level of knowledge about the company. Every organization is different and we strive to gain an understanding of the uniqueness of each company that ultimately becomes a driver in the associated value.

Our principal, Angelo A. Ferrara, has advanced degrees in both business administration and engineering and has taught finance courses to MBA candidates. Prior to opening Rapt, he operated a manufacturing company and brings a “hands on” business experience to the buying and selling process. He is a member of the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA) and has achieved their designation as a Certified Business Intermediary (CBI). As one who has experienced owning and operating his own business, he understands that in he must act as a mentor to his client as well conduct successful negotiations.
