Sale of business advisory

Acquisitions and disposals – Sale of business advisory

For most entrepreneurs, the sale of their business is a highly stressful event which places significant strain on both the owner and the management team. They have to liaise with prospective investors, prepare information to facilitate due diligence on the business, and negotiate the terms of the Transaction, all while continuing to run an efficient business.

Value can be lost in many ways such as through an inefficiently managed process, ineffective marketing of the business, setting an unrealistic selling price, competitors taking advantage of management’s preoccupation with the Transaction to poach customers and staff, to name a few.

The sale of a business is a highly complex process and in order to ensure your transaction objectives are met, the process should be entrusted to a team of highly qualified and experienced dealmakers. Crest Capital’s directors have many years of experience in guiding business owners through the complexities of the sale of their business and, in the process, ensuring that the optimal end result is achieved.
