The one common goal shared by most shareholders is to maximise the value realised from a disposal process. For many shareholders, selling their business is a once in a lifetime event. Our objective is to obtain the best combination of price, form of consideration, deal structure and compatible purchaser within an agreed timescale.
We actively manage the disposal process from the initial planning and pre-marketing stages through to deal completion. We provide clients with an exit strategy review and advise shareholders of the various exit options available to them. This can include full or partial trade sale, sale to management via institutional funding or restructuring the business to facilitate an equity release.
Our role includes preparation of the Information Memorandum, organisation of the electronic data room, management presentations, leading negotiations, actively managing all the advisors including lawyers and due diligence providers, building an efficient tax structure, through to a successful completion.
Through our extensive research capability and our relationships with acquisitive corporates and private equity institutions, we will identify potential purchasers with the strategic rationale and financial capability to both pay a premium price and also deliver the deal.
Our international reach through ICFG enables our UK clients to benefit from a large database of international acquirers and makes cross-border transactions happen in the most efficient and knowledgeable way.
