How to Prepare your Small Business for Sale

Special Event 25th June 8am-12pm, Harbourview Newcastle

Do You Hope to Sell Your Business One Day and Cash In?
Most people do, but they don’t know where to start and sadly, they never do anything about it! Those same people complain that “their business is different” and “that’s not how it works in my industry”. They also talk about the “lucky ones” that find a buyer by some kind of miraculous coincidence, like they fell out of the sky. It’s time to set the record straight. Are you planning for your business to fund your retirement and need to sell it for the best price?  You might just want to be more attractive to potential investors. You may not be wanting to sell it yet, but you might look for capital injections, or financial partners at some stage and that is not the time to be thinking “I wish I was ready to promote the opportunity better”.

We value and improve businesses for a living and you will be shocked when we show you the process that we go through when we’re advising a client that’s looking at buying a particular business. Despite what you think, it has little to do with the profit and it has nothing to do with recent business sales in your industry. It’s all about strategy.
