Prior to commencing the sale we can review all of the areas above with management and make an assessment as to whether improvements can be made in a given time. To identify the Value Drivers on which to focus, we address two key questions:

  • Which factors will have the most significant impact on the future value of the business?
  • Which of those factors can be most effectively managed?

Sometimes it is better to delay a sale for 12 to 18 months to maximise sale value.

Remember – Buyers pay for the past, but buy for the future.

If you are considering selling your business within a shorter time frame, focus with us on the factors that will yield the greatest impact over that shorter term.
