Whilst we reach a wide range of buyers through our network and current client base, there are three key reasons why most clients benefit from an approach that covers all bases.
What this means is a really thorough reach across national and international markets for buyers for your company.
We list clients anonymously on all the key business sale websites. From our research, we know which sites attract the right buyers and audience for each type of business.
Of course, there are also a considerable number of time-wasters who enquire so we filter and qualify all responses, to ensure that they are credible and genuine fits for you.
Our use of business data and technology to drive the process means that we can identify UK and International trade and industry buyers who will be in the best position to make you offers for your company.
We’re not just skilled in finding the obvious buyers, such as larger companies that operate in the same space as you do. But we are also well equipped in locating International buyers who are looking to expand internationally, and buyers in similar sectors who may see you as a good opportunity to grow into a new market space.
If you choose this service, we will do more than just help you find buyers and qualify them.
Trying to run a confidential disposal process at the same time as a business can be very time-consuming: fielding calls and emails, arranging meetings, discussing valuation, NDAs and disclosure as well as juggling competing offers. We take as much as we can off your plate, but keep you engaged where it matters.
Once you have engaged us, we will work closely with you on identifying the key trade buyers and sectors of interest for your company. We will also research internationally to find any further potential acquirers for your company.
We will reach them, engage them (or their advisors) and qualify their interest in the opportunity, taking into account the timing and their resources. Should there be interest we will get NDAs in place and introduce them to you and support you in the disposal process.
Better still we are the only company to offer real-time reporting data for you so that you are always fully informed of interest in you and your company.

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.

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
