Why 90% of businesses never sell and what to do about it.

There are many different strategies for selling a business.  One of the most stark differences comes from the type of business.  Traditional businesses (less than 20% growth, strong profitability, lower gross profit, non-recurrent revenue) have quite different sales strategies than tech startups (cash burn, high growth, mainly recurrent revenue, low profitability). 

I want to sell my business

Most businesses are not ready for sale.  Some will never sell the way they are.  However, if you need to sell your business now, we can give you an estimate of how saleable your business is, what it might sell for and what are the best sales strategies for you.

We will show you what sort of business sale would be best for you and how to go about it.  If the business is not right for us, we can refer you to other brokers.

How do I maximise the value of my business if I don’t want to sell now?

If you want to get the best price for your business, it can take a minimum of 5 years.  The first 2 are spent getting your business ready for sale (this may take longer depending on where you start from).  It normally takes a year to actually sell a business and then there are a further 2 years of workouts and deferred payments.
