    Reread what I wrote. It says that buy-side fees are usually higher than a sell-side fees, because of the uncertainity to close is greater. For example, if you are advising one of 20 companies in an auction process you have a lower likelihood of winning the auction and therefore getting paid. Compared with the firm that is advising on the sale of the company, they get paid when the company is sold regardless of who acquirers the business.
