Are your business plans attractive to a potential buyer?

How does a buyer view your business?

Selling your business, no matter how successful it is, can be difficult without proper business plans in place

Will your business sell?

  • If you run a successful company, and believe you will have no trouble selling your business; think again. There are too many great businesses that the owners have not been able to sell. However profitable a business is, if it does not fit the criteria of a buyer, then no sale will be forthcoming
  • It is how appealing a company is to a potential buyer which determines a high business valuation. We make sure your business is attractive to a buyer, in order to make a sale as smooth as possible

How do you make your business attractive?

  • If you do not plan your exit properly and then execute a good exit strategy, it is unlikely the true value of your business will be reflected in the price that is paid. Moreover, without good succession planning the business may not even be attractive to potential buyers at all. This in turn will make selling your business extremely difficult
  • You should make sure the right Management Team is in place with the right operational controls
  • You should make sure that legal contracts are in order and correct management information is provided
  • Without these the business valuations will never be as high as you expected; as any potential buyer will deem buying the business a huge risk

Keeping the Buyer’s Interest

  • We help you to put in place business plans that take into account the competition and the overall state of the market, evaluate the risks for potential buyers and give you advice on how to mitigate them
  • By addressing these issues, we give you the best chance of selling your business. However profitable your company may be, without the implementation of an effective Exit Strategy, it will not necessarily look like a business that is ready to be taken over
  • We make sure that the company is attractive to a buyer so it can be sold at the best business valuations possible
  • By running the company with a succession plan in place, it allows you to sell your business at a time of your choosing
  • Failure to execute a proper exit strategy can leave you trapped in a business you no longer wish to run
  • Don’t get stuck with a business you are unable to sell
