The Selling Process

The first step in the journey begins with the initial enquiry, or our approach to you.  At this stage we will find out more about each other and your business (usually via telephone call). You may decide that this isn’t the right route for you at this time or that you’d like to discuss in more detail, without any commitment or obligation.


We will both sign a Non-disclosure agreement so that we can exchange information securely.

Business Review

At this stage we need to discuss your company performance in greater detail, looking at turnover and profit from the last three years. More importantly, we are looking to establish a relationship based on trust, ensuring our values, needs and wants are aligned.


We use several parameters to evaluate a potential acquisition including market position, customers, competitors, main suppliers, historical data and future involvement of key employees.   


Our main criteria, is that the company is profitable and preferably with a second tier of management in place (however we will consider financially distressed businesses).  

The consultation Meeting

The consultation stage is continue to build rapport and to ensure that any additional queries regarding the business / structure are clarified.  Furthermore we will discuss whether key individuals will stay involved after the acquisition.

The Completion

The sale and purchase agreement (contract) is finalised and exchanged.  Completion can be an unsettling time as you, your employees and our team begin to embrace this new phase. But it is also an exciting opportunity for a new start for everyone involved.


We understand and appreciate that change should be handled sensitively and we are extremely mindful of this. Therefore, we pride ourselves on excellent communication which is essential at this stage.

This is the stage in the process where you begin to enjoy the rewards for all your hard work. It's the start of a process of positive change, where you can move into the next phase of your life and enjoy freedom from the burden, responsibilities, and daily grind of running a company.
