There comes a point in every entrepreneur’s life when they consider selling their company. Whether you’re ready to retire, or you’re looking for a new route for your growth ambitions, the sale of your company is a complex process. Your individual situation is our starting point, and our consultants will guide you through the entire sales process, step by step.
When you make the decision to sell you’ll have a vision for your future and that of your company. But there are many steps to take before you crystallise that vision. Are you optimally ready to sell, do you know the worth of your company, and do you know enough about the sales strategies that may be available? In an introductory meeting with one of our M&A specialists, free of charge, we will explore your ambitions, and discuss which strategies are the best fit.
Assessing the value of your company
It’s natural to want the best possible deal, and at Marktlink we understand this like no-one else. That’s why we put so much care and effort into an extensive information memorandum that gives potential buyers a good impression of your company and current trends in your industry. We also offer an indicative and reliable value assessment of your company, taking future growth potential or synergies into account.
As soon as we’ve established the requirements a buyer needs to meet, we draw up a longlist. By combining online data and personal knowledge, we’ve built up an extensive database, and we apply smart algorithms to match up potential deal partners. We aim to find you 6 to 10 potential buyers, and it’s likely the list will include candidates you would have never thought of yourself.
The deal of your life
You should expect the sales process to take 6 to 12 months. That’s an average timescale that takes account of the time you’ll need to arrive at a well-considered decision, and the volume of paperwork involved. Marktlink’s own legal team will get involved in plenty of time to prepare all the necessary documents and contracts. In fact, we take care of everything right up until the moment the deal is finalised at the notary’s office. We do everything we can to achieve the best deal of your life.
