Merger & Acquisition Services, Inc. is considered by many to be the trusted source for insurance companies and agencies that seek to start up an insurance carrier operation, expand their geographic footprint or enter the US insurance market via a Shell Insurance Company acquisition. M&A Services continues to be a leader in helping companies divest and/or acquire Insurance Shell Companies throughout the United States and abroad.
Insurance companies typically look to sell a company as a shell to streamline their corporate structure and reduce operating overhead and expenses. Selling a non-operating company as a shell eliminates the need to maintain quarterly and annual statements, regulatory filings and triennial exams.
In addition, the costs associated with merging and/or liquidating a shell typically meet or exceed the costs associated with selling the company, however, these options do not maximize the embedded value of licenses.
Purchasing an Insurance Shell Company provides a quicker time to market – typically 90 days versus a year or more when starting from de-novo.
Adding additional states via applying through a new company takes several years due to seasoning requirements in various states, where with an Insurance Shell Company acquisition, typically most licenses transfer at the time of sale.
Department of Insurance approval is typically only needed in the state(s) of domicile when purchasing a Shell Insurance Company.
