Why let all the energy, time and expense you have invested in your business go to waste when it comes to your company sale?
How can you have confidence that your interests are best protected when it comes to selling your company. It is our view that business owners need more choice and flexibility to realise their ambition of a successful business exit. Which is why we have developer a much more flexible and streamlined service for you.
Our range of services has been developed to empower business owners to have greater control and visibility on their business exit. To that end we believe that business owners are best served by their accountancy firms, and their advisors.
We just bring the market knowledge and buyers to the process, but in a way which offers you the visibility that you need.
You can take advantage of a one, two, or three pronged approach to selling your company. With Firm Gains we offer these routes, each one will provide with a range of potential buyers:
1. Direct to Market: you will be introduced, at no upfront cost, to the most active corporate buyers, but otherwise keep your business ‘off-market’
2. Advertise Your Business for Sale Online: use our skills in online marketing to reach an online audience of over 200,000 buyers
3. Target Trade Buyers: to research, identify and approach an agreed visible list of trade buyers interested in entering discussions with you
Appointed by you, working closely with your preferred advisors, we will support you along the way to ensure that you get the most effective exit plan in place. We’ll advise you on what options will work best for you, and project the levels of interest and potential outcomes.
Simply call us on 0333 050 8225 and discuss your situation with the leading independent experts in the business sale marketplace. No pressure, no sales pitch, just straightforward advice.
SELLING YOUR BUSINESS IS EASY
ONLY 20% OF BUSINESSES SELL.
MOST STRUGGLE TO FIND THE RIGHT BUYER,
OR ARE POORLY ADVISED THROUGH THE PROCESS.
BUSINESS VALUATION IS ELASTIC
VIRTUALLY ALL BUSINESS SELL WITHIN STANDARD INDUSTRY MULTIPLES.
THE HIGHER THE OFFER, THE GREATER THE CONDITIONS AND RESTRICTIONS.
IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO SELL
IT DEPENDS ON HOW QUICKLY YOU CAN FIND AND CONNECT WITH BUYERS.
WE HAVE SEEN DEALS COMPLETED WITHIN A MONTH FROM FIRST CONTACT.
YOU NEED A FIRM HAND IN NEGOTIATIONS
THE MOST SUCCESSFUL NEGOTIATIONS ARE COLLABORATIVE.
A COMBATIVE APPROACH CAN LOSE YOUR BEST BUYER, FOR GOOD.
YOU CAN WALK AWAY IMMEDIATELY AFTER SELLING
SOME BUYERS WILL NEED A YEAR OR MORE OF YOUR TIME.
MANY WILL LINK IT TO EARN OUTS.
MOST WILL EXPECT A FULL HANDOVER.
YOU NEED A SPECIALIST ADVISOR TO HELP YOU SELL
THE MAIN CHALLENGE IS FINDING THE BUYERS.
WITH THE RIGHT ACCOUNTANT AND LAWYER TO HAND, YOU CAN DO THE REST!
(AFTER ALL MOST ADVISORS MAKE YOU DO THAT WORK ANYWAY)
THE DEAL SIZE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR FEES
THEY ARE BOTH IMPORTANT, BUT IF YOU DON’T FIND A BUYER, THEY CAN BE PAINFUL TO PAY.
IF YOU DO SELL, YOU MAY END UP WITH THE SAME OFFER FROM THE SAME BUYER.
Explore the options available to you, improve your chances of successful sale.
If you’re seeking a business to buy, then we can increase your deal flow.
In the early stages of such an important undertaking, it can be a bit of a moral maze: who do you trust?
Firm Gains gave me confidence with detailed advice and support. I would recommend their services to other entrepreneurs seeking to buy a business.Mr T Washington , Founder
I found it much easier to get my head around a business sale this way than talking to my accountant. You speak a language I understand!
Even though the whole process of selling seems daunting, I’ve got more confidence that I’m heading in the right direction.Mrs T Boothe , Founder
Thank you for your email and the excellent advice provided earlier this week. It was immensely helpful and has helped me to plan my future direction for the practice.
I would have no problem whatsoever in recommending your services in the future.Mr & Mrs Halldron , Co-Owners
Firm Gains were recommended to me and I was not disappointed. They were efficient, helpful and effective responding quickly to my request with all the facts that were needed to ensure a stress-free dialogue with our buyer.
What really helped was the advice over and above the valuation, which was immensely valuable and gave me the confidence to proceed. I would not hesitate in recommending them.Mr C Waite , Founder
We found the advice invaluable, which was clear and concise and felt your firm had a good handle on market trends and business sectors.
With also the backup of the secondary services, there was a feeling you had all bases covered if we wanted to proceed with our exit via Management Buy Out (‘MBO’).Mr D Wills , Director
Thank you for your advice. I was just about to sign up to the wrong kind of business agent for a company of our size, but read your post just in time.
I found a more serious partner, with experience in our industry and we’re already using the same language.Mr F Summerscale , Managing Director
We have been greatly impressed by the clear and impartial advice given to us by Firm Gains. After just an initial phone call we felt much better informed, with a new awareness of the many options available to us.
Firm gains understood our situation quickly and clearly and were anything but ‘pushy’. Refreshing compared to what we’d experienced before.Mr C Hutcheson , Managing Director
