Most businesses are founded by people with a passion for creating ways to deliver better products or services to their clients. As the business grows, so its value increases and the owners consider a future sale to reap the reward of their hard work. But what is the right price, and how do you achieve it?
Businesses with an attractive proposition, a strong client list and significant profitability will certainly find interested potential buyers. But, these factors alone don’t guarantee the best valuation. Failure to plan proactively and carefully for an exit can risk becoming either unsellable or considerably undervalued.
We can help identify the key value drivers in your business and guide you through the vital few steps required to add maximum value.
We also help drive value by raising capital, providing business valuations and financial due diligence so you can achieve your growth objectives. If listing on a public market is part of your strategy, we can help with that too.
Whether you are an entrepreneur or large corporate, we can help with:
- Selling your business
- Due diligence and pre-lending reviews
- Growing your business
- Raising capital
- Management buy-outs and buy-ins
- Valuing your business
- Transaction tax support
- Employee incentives
We are a full service accounting and advisory firm which means we can also provide our clients with integrated professional services including audit and tax.
