Selling Your Business

selling business

 

Selling a business is one of the most important transactions a business owner can make, and the sale process requires a high level of competence and absolute focus from your adviser. Our market-leading research capability combined with direct, unparalleled access to over 5,000 corporate acquirers, and both domestic and international private equity communities, ensure that business vendors obtain the best possible deals, structured in the best possible way.

 

B&F clients benefit from our close ties with global investment banks, private equities and institutional investors. We offer a hands-on service, which can identify target buyers who can close a deal and pay the best possible price for your business. In addition, our principal focus on advising vendors of businesses allows us to avoid the conflicts of interest that can arise for other advisors who have existing business relationships with larger companies that might be potential acquirers.


The B&F team comprises experienced executives, who either have professional qualifications or have worked previously in senior positions within international companies. Our highly confidential and individually-tailored service is always provided by senior, experienced professionals, who are the principal contact point with our clients.

 

Over 90% of all businesses taken 'to market' by the UK's advisory community fail to sell. B&F has developed a process that works alongside both business owners and investors to ensure that the businesses that they own are FULLY prepared for sale. It is a highly structured and rigorous process that identifies all key business issues that will drive value or enhance the 'sale-ability' of your business when the time comes to sell.
