Not every entrepreneur is up for the inevitable additional consequences when a company is bursting at the seams. Bart Weber is such a person: a great deal of product knowledge, pure bred trader, but he does not derive any energy from managing a business. Selling All4Car was necessary, however, and at Marktlink he found a deal team that promised him not to stop until a suitable buyer was found. “Before he knocked on our door, Bart had already had some exploratory talks. That interest remained superficial, and in the meantime the pandemic shifted his priorities. As soon as Bart had his company well protected against corona, he was able to pick up the process again and this time together with us”, Joep van den Enk looks back.
The first contact with Marktlink was the Marktlink Multiple, which Bart Weber had filled in to get an indication of his company’s value. “We saw enough leads to get acquainted, so I decided to give him a call. His confidence in Marktlink grew when he realised that we had the right network and could guide the process in a professional and systematic way. This became clear when, during the selection procedure for potential buyers, we had a number of parties on our list that he himself had his eye on. For Bart, the most important criterion was to share his responsibilities as a shareholder.”
