Sale of Businesses

We work with our clients to come up with optimal strategies to meet the goals of our clients. We can help them handle all of the myriad tasks that crop up in a given business transaction. We always put our client´s needs first and foremost and are not tied down by conventional thinking.

The sale or the acquisition of a business is a relatively complex set of procedures and events, which can be impacted by any number of special circumstances and considerations. With few exceptions, the actual transaction of acquisition or of selling a business (company) is usually relatively time consuming - even if everything goes according to plan. That´s why we always recommend to cooperate with professional consultant.

The proper planning and flawless management of the entire process are elemental to the smooth completion of the transaction. The objective insight of an independent consultant looking into the various aspects of the sale and the overall scope of the transaction is often helpful, if not critical.

From a seller´s perspective, the sale of their business is likely most important matter they have had to deal with and we will be treating it as such.

Our approach to a transaction involving the sale of business is to break the process down into stages, which, when carefully followed, can almost always ensure a successful outcome. They also help all parties know what is going on at any given time (transparency).

Stage 1: Preparation of Initial Sales Information and Offering Documentation
preliminary business analysis > valuation > sales brochure > approach to and negotiations with potential buyer(s)

Stage 2: Sales Transaction
letter of interest > non-disclosure agreement > heads of terms / letter of intent / memorandum of understanding > due diligence > contract documents > completion of transaction > post-transaction monitoring (as required, based on individual arrangements with the parties)

We are aware of the importance of exchanging and sharing up-to-date information with the client on a regular basis throughout the entire process. The proper communication between the parties and access to current, unbiased information can make a significant contribution to the successful outcome of the sale.

When selling a business, we adhere to our own clearly defined principles, which we combine with our practical experience, innovative thinking and knowledge of the latest international trends and current legislation. We always approach a task with a positive attitude and take a personalized approach designed to produce quality results fulfilling the expectations of the client.
