How We Do Deals
We are the principals for the deals we complete, NOT brokers. And we have the experience and capability to assess and make an offer for your business swiftly – often within days of the first contact. For the right deals we can complete within weeks.
Because we are like you, we fully understand that a business can be the biggest asset that people own and as such selling your business should be treated with caution. It is important to us that we treat each potential acquisition as unique, we listen carefully to your wants and needs and form a plan to ensure that you are completely happy with the outcome.
If you are aiming to retire, we recognise that it may be very important to you for the good name and reputation of your business be kept – this is understandable as you will have worked long hours to build the Business up!
Finance and Deal Structures
We focus entirely on acquiring good, steady and profitable Owner Managed Businesses.
We take a close look at the historic performance of the business as well as the prospects for a decent return on profit after tax over the next four to five years. If your business is well run with consistent results, then we should talk.
We access finance from a wide range of 2nd tier commercial funders and we also have a small network of High Net Worth investors who work with us.
Our deals are almost always entirely shares paid for in cash. We’ll pay you an agreed proportion of the sale value on the day of completion and the then the rest deferred over an agreed period, anywhere between 12-48 months.
