Our Approach

Developed through years of experience in successful commercial and corporate business sale transactions, our strategically managed approach to selling businesses guarantees a smoother transaction, more buyers and a maximised sale price for your business.

From the start through to completion we provide a director-led 'hands-on' service that is designed around you. We advise and guide you through each stage of the sales process, helping you to make the decisions that will result in the most profitable sale of your business. We handle each stage of the process with dedication and professionalism, resolutely focused on delivering the very best outcome for you.

Understanding

We believe that great results are achieved by fully understanding your business in as much detail as possible, as well as what it is that you personally want to achieve from the sale. As such we begin by arranging for one of our Directors to meet with you for a free consultation without commitment, in order to discuss your business and objectives honestly and openly, as well as answering any questions that you may have. During the meeting we will look at your preferred timescale, define your target market and provide a free preliminary outline market valuation.

Preparation

On receiving your instruction we begin the process of preparing your business for sale which will include reviewing your sector, planning the sales exercise and preparing high quality marketing materials including the Information Memorandum. This document is expertly written and provides a powerful overview of the key benefits, features and potential of your business, helping to influence prospective buyers at an early stage. High quality professional colour photography will also be included where appropriate. Once you have approved these documents the business is ready to go on to the market.

Marketing

We reach the maximum number of potential buyers through superior marketing techniques and unrivalled campaigns. Unlike most business brokers, our comprehensive marketing approach extends way beyond what advertising alone can accomplish. In addition to our live national database of sector buyers, we conduct meticulous research into potential purchasers both nationally and internationally, including competitor and complementary businesses looking for expansion or synergy. Potential acquirers are carefully vetted for suitability and then, with your approval, are approached directly. Throughout the process we always maintain your confidentiality, ensuring that the identity of your company is withheld and that all potential purchasers sign a formal Non Disclosure Agreement before further details are released. Our detailed approach unearths the maximum number of suitable buyers and maximises the sale price of your business.

Negotiation

Once confirmed buyers has been found, we will handle all practical aspects, leading discussions, coordinating buyer meetings, handling offers and managing negotiations to secure you the very best deal in terms of both price and deal structure. Once you’re happy with an offer, we will then get the paperwork drawn up and formalise written terms with the buyer, ensuring complete clarity. We will prepare and support you during the entire legal, financial and due diligence process, liaising with all relevant parties to make the process as smooth and as straightforward as possible for you. We will work proactively to coordinate and drive forward your sale until successful completion, enabling you to continue focusing on running your business. We pride ourselves on a high degree of communication and this means we will always be on hand to explain every aspect, keeping you fully involved and informed every step of the way.
