Successful business leaders prioritise succession planning, whether by bringing in new management or by changing ownership.
We always start by understanding your personal objectives. That could be retaining family control, passing the business on to its managers, realising the highest price – or something else entirely. Many entrepreneurs want to leave behind them a legacy that retains the unique culture and identity of the business. We’ll work with you to review your company’s situation and then, together, we’ll structure a strategic plan for a smooth exit.
The right exit strategy, meticulous preparation, deep insights and clear articulation of the strengths of your business, along with finding the right buyer or investor, are the critical elements of a successful exit. We pride ourselves on being able to deliver all of this to secure the very best results for you.
Our promise is simple: to understand and deliver to your objectives. Frequently that will be to maximise the value of the sale. We will do that. We specialise in selling businesses for individuals and our selling principles are well established. Confidentiality, competitive tension and controlled processes guide everything we do. But we don’t use a cookie cutter approach. We’ll work with you to find the ideal buyer who is prepared to pay the most and be the best partner for your business and, thanks to Global M&A, we will attract interest from overseas as well as from across the UK. This means only serious buyers with strong strategic reasons and the right motivations are shortlisted.
