Selling a private business is usually a once in a lifetime opportunity. We make it happen.
We specialise in the sale of companies with revenues typically from £5M-£50M.
Our clients engage us to identify suitable buyers and to confidentially manage the complete sale process through to a successful transaction.
Engaging our services allows the business owner to retain focus on their business during a company sale. We provide expert guidance, strategic advice and discrete negotiation to reach the most favourable deal.
We have supported business owners within a wide range of verticals including industrial automation, aerospace and defence, information technology, food & beverage, healthcare and medical devices. Our clients choose to work with us because of our industry know-how, research capability, experience and global connections.
By thinking strategically about our client’s business and carefully matching a buyer with a seller, we create the optimum conditions for a successful deal.
One of our key strengths is our ability to research global markets for potential buyers. With an investment of around 125 man-days in research for every client project we handle, our research capability is very strong. Even though most of our clients are experts in their chosen field, we frequently present potential buyers previously unknown to our client – but ideally matching the criteria for an acquisition.
Our 15-strong virtual team is made up of experienced researchers and analysts. Each client project is led personally by our Managing Director. To date, we have delivered successful deals in South Africa, Australia, Hong Kong, China, Germany, UK and Ireland.
