Whilst we have over 50 active acquirers on our books offering you the chance to sell your business without fees, we are also part of a much broader network of advisory businesses seeking to connect buyers and sellers of businesses.
With over 3,000 buyers actively looking to acquire, we are very confident that we will find more fitting acquirers for you, giving you an even better chance to sell your company for the right value.
We will share with you our ‘Toolkit‘ for sale which covers how to get ready for sale and an outline of the process, with templates for key milestones such as valuation, negotiation and head of terms.
We will handle the outreach for you, preparing an anonymous profile for your company and engaging directly with select M&A firms and leveraging networks to find suitable acquirers.
We will field all enquiries and qualify them for you. Only about one in five will be any good, but we will ensure that they are serious and have the capabilities to make the right offer for your business.
We will also be on hand to help advise as discussions and negotiations progress.
If you are selling your company with our assistance then we will work with any finance, accounting and legal advisors you would like around you.
So, if you want more reach than our no fee service, why not consider boosting your reach and opportunity by using Unloq to connect with the global mergers and acquisitions marketplace?
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
