Selling your business

Starting and building a business can be a lifelong passion. You’ve worked long and hard to build up your business, shouldering the risks and feeling the weight of various demands.

But there comes a time for every business owner to say goodbye and move on with the next stage of their life.

If you’ve reached that point where you’re feeling more tired and frustrated, rather than inspired and energised, then let’s talk about your exit strategy. Call us now on 1300 654 590 or email us.

How we can help you

Selling a business is a massive distraction. It’s not something you do every day, and it’s not something you do alone. But when you do it, the stakes are high. You need to get it done right. There are no second chances.

We know how the process of selling a business is run, from beginning to end. We’ll help you manage competitive tension to get the best result, fast.

We understand that you want the best possible price, on the best possible terms.

We’ll help you:

  • Find the best possible buyers for your business.
  • Ensure they appreciate the full value of your business, and pay the maximum price.
  • Keep them on the hook with well-managed ‘competitive tension’ all the way to signing-off on the deal.
  • Minimise the strings attached, so you can move on with the rest of your life with confidence.
  • When it comes to negotiating the terms, we’re also happy to be the bad guy.

Don’t wait until your tank is completely empty. Call us now on 1300 654 590 or email us to kick off your successful exit.

Get yourself prepared

The best way to kick-off the process is to get some knowledge about what’s involved in selling your business – what’s the process going to be like, what do you need to look out for – the pitfalls.

We have prepared the following materials to get you started on the right track:
