If you’re on this website, then you are looking to buy at least one business. It should be easy, shouldn’t it? There seems to be considerable choice.
But once you target the right size, sector and region, what seems like an ocean of opportunity from a distance is more like a puddle when close up.
Only 2% of businesses in the UK are currently for sale. So either you need patience, or compromise. Or, with our help, you can target the other 98% by looking ‘off market’.
When we speak to business owners and ask the ‘million dollar question’ of whether they would consider selling, over two thirds say ‘yes’.
That doesn’t mean that the deal is done, but that they would entertain an offer for their company. Particularly where the overall deal made sense to them.
This also means that our clients get to speak to business owners direct. No interference, no advisors, no distractions. It’s the best way to acquire a business.
The final hurdle to overcome is sometimes the most frustrating. Once you’re engaged with a vendor, and an indicative offer has been discussed, surely it’s just a matter of time?
Sadly, in our experience, this isn’t the case. There are a wide range of reasons why deals fall down, but the majority do, even if an offer has been accepted in principle.
To buy a company on the best terms, a ratio of ten to one is about right. The question is how to get there.
That’s OK. You’re welcome to take a look around our website and find out a little more about how we go about acquisition.
To buy a business is a great opportunity to invest capital and realise a good return, particularly if you are seeking to use it to accelerate growth or to invest in new regions or services. Perhaps you are thinking about how to finance it?
