Selling, buying or growing your business

You may have business expansion on your mind or may be looking to sell your business, whatever your objectives are, we can help you explore and understand your options. If you are expanding, you may need to raise finance or if selling we can help you prepare your business and find the right buyer through our established network. We can also help you put the right succession plan in place to support your goals.

Selling a Business

Our dedicated team can utilise our extensive network to source prospective buyers, assist in negotiating the best deal and manage the project from start to finish.

Buying a Business

Identifying the right businesses to target is crucial in making acquisition a success. Our wide network and experience enable us to find opportunities and secure the necessary funding. We can preserve your anonymity, if required, throughout the process and ensure all necessary due diligence is carried out.

Management Buyout (“MBO”) and Management Buy-in (“MBI”)

MBOs and MBIs can be excellent succession strategies for a business. As an exit strategy it gives an opportunity for control of the business to pass to those with a close working knowledge of the business and is often a faster process than selling a business.

Raising Finance

Structuring your finances in the most cost-effective way is crucial to the success of your business. We can review your current position then advise and recommend better solutions. Whether you are looking to support growth, refinance, release value or fund capital expenditure our experienced team can assist in finding you the right solution.
