Our approach to business is focused on attention to detail by concentrating on only a small number of sales or acquisitions at any one time. We believe that the difference between failure and success is doing a thing nearly right or doing a thing exactly right.
We are forensic in our approach to business and are focused on delivering a satisfactory end result to any sale or acquisition. By having a commercial attitude to business and understanding that commercial criteria must be present in any transaction it allows us to work in many market sectors.
We have a complete understanding of leasing and landlord requirements with respect to the retail sector and also appreciate the impact that matters such as working capital will have in the manufacturing and wholesale / distribution sectors. Most of our business is completed through a network of clients, accountants and centres of influence that we have established since 1989. Generally most sales and acquisitions are completed off market without the need for advertising. This is a real benefit in keeping confidentiality in the transaction.
We will sell your business on a success fee only basis. There are no up front costs associated with the sale. We will cover all marketing costs and will only be paid on the successful settlement of the business. The fee will be negotiated based on the nature and value of the business. We are committed to adding value to the transaction equal to the fee that we will be paid.
We will provide a realistic view on the value range that your business will have in the market. Commercial logic is paramount and will be provided with complete explanation. To start with we must identify the first rule of willing buyer and willing seller. We must also abide by the rule of reality which states that:
“Reality isn’t the way that you wish things to be, nor the way they appear to be, but the way they actually are. Either you acknowledge reality and use it to your benefit or it will automatically work against you.”
