Company Sales

You have built and established a business over a number of years, experienced the highs and lows of running it, but may now have reached the point at which you are considering selling.

This is likely due to a change of circumstances, whether that is retirement, ill health, the challenging financial climate, or a simple desire for ‘la dolce vita’. Whatever the reason the questions come thick and fast:

  • When is the right time to sell?
  • What is the valuation of my business?
  • Where are the buyers?
  • How do I sell my business?
  • What are the pitfalls?
  • Who do I ask for advice?

Sterling Corporate Finance has decades of experience in advising vendors on such sales and deals with these types of questions on a daily basis.

We tailor the sale process to meet the individual requirements of each client but it usually encompasses the following six phases:

  • Initial review
  • Preparation of an Information Memorandum
  • Identification and evaluation of potential buyers
  • Buyer approach
  • Assessing potential offers and negotiating with potential buyers to identify a preferred buyer
  • Driving the transaction to a successful completion, including coordinating the efforts of all professional parties involved, notably lawyers and accountants.
