Find Your Ideal Buyer With Direct to Market

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.

  1. We Maximise Online Reach: we continue to track and measure the performance of the best business websites and will proactively market your company
  2. We Actively Engage: buyers are also busy, and it is easy for them to miss opportunities. With Direct to Market, we ensure the best fits are not missed
  3. You Save Time: you do not want to be too distracted from operating or overseeing your business, with Direct to Market, our level of support is much greater than our other disposal services

What this means is a really thorough reach across national and international markets for buyers for your company.

1. Maximising Online Reach for Your Company Disposal

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.

2. Active Buyer Engagement

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.

3. Saving You Time

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.

How Does it Work?

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.
