Sell Your Company
Are you considering an exit strategy?
Selling your company is a huge decision and one that takes a lot of consideration. There are many obstacles and factors to consider before marketing your business and the guide below will give you advice on a few of these factors.
Arrange a free valuation
Arranging a valuation is the first step towards selling your company. One of our directors will give you an honest and realistic valuation.
Decide your exit level
Are you looking for a full share sale of your company or do you wish to retain a percentage? It is important for you to have a clear and defined goal for your exit strategy.
Decide your timescale
It can take a couple of years to sell some businesses and, therefore, it is important to give yourself enough time to find the right buyer. If you are not in a significant rush to sell your company, this will give you greater power when negotiating a sale.
Prepare your documentation
A potential buyer will want to see copies of all your financial documentation before submitting an offer on your company. It is also important to have all other relevant documentation, such as lease agreements and ongoing contracts, in order.
Organise your management structure
It is vital for a potential buyer to see that your company can operate without you and, therefore, it is key to structure your management to make this possible.
These are just a few things that you would need to consider before marketing your company. One of our Executive Directors would be happy to discuss these with you during a free consultation and valuation.
