M&A Sell-Side

You may find yourself putting serious thought into selling your business. It could be a matter of the ‘right time’ or it could perhaps stem from a third party that is interested in buying your business.

M&A sell-side: selling a company

Are you considering selling your business? A successful transaction involves more than simply obtaining the best financial result: it also involves achieving your strategic business and personal goals.

Sales process

The sales process consists of three phases: preparation, transaction and completion. During each phase, we keep a careful eye on your goals and monitor progress. Each process starts with a thorough assessment of your wishes and expectations. In addition, it is important to assess whether the company is actually ready to be sold.

1. Preparation phase

During preparation for the sales process, together we establish the lead time and lay the foundations for a successful result. Any information you provide is in safe hands*. During this phase we work closely with the advisors involved in your business, such as accountants and tax advisors.

2. Transaction phase

Following this thorough preparation, the sales process starts in earnest once we approach third parties. In most cases, we first gauge whether a third party is open to acquisitions and, if that is indeed the case, we conduct research on the basis of an anonymous profile to ascertain the degree to which your business fits theirs. Subsequently, we sign non-disclosure agreements, hold introductory talks with potential buyers and receive and analyse (non-binding) offers for the business.

3. Completion phase

As soon as possible following the signing of a Letter of Intent, the buyer and their advisor(s) commence the due diligence process. After the findings of this process have been discussed, the final phase of the process commences. This consists of drafting the transaction documentation and holding negotiations related to this.
