Selling Your Business
Whatever your reason is for selling your business, you want to maximise the return on your investment by selling at a peak market valuation. The ability to achieve this outcome and your desired exit route will depend largely upon your Corporate Finance Adviser’s expertise.
We are a team of specialists devoted to obtaining the highest returns for our clients and we will guide and support you through various stages of the sales process. The first phase of preparing your business for sale includes critical appraisal of your business, valuation and preparation of sales memoranda and information packs to present your business in the best possible light.
We undertake research, screening and analysis of potential buyers using a wide variety of data sources that identifies the strategic buyer and financial resources. Being active in the market means that we know who the premium buyers are and are able to arrange confidential introductions. We identify those businesses which offer a good strategic fit for your business and will carry out more detailed investigations as appropriate.
We work with you to structure the transaction in a manner which will enhance your prospects of reaching a successful deal, maximising your return.
At this stage we will bring in our tax consultants to ensure that the deal is structured in a tax efficient manner. This helps to formulate a deal which meets the aspirations of both the purchaser and the vendor, increasing the likelihood of a successful outcome.
Once a deal has been agreed in principle we take an active role to make the completion process as smooth and as prompt as possible; liaising with other advisers involved in transaction where applicable.
