Selling a business is not as simple as placing an advert on Gumtree. Having the business ducks in a row, and then shooting them down in the correct sequence is absolutely fundamental to not only selling the business and agreeing on the best price and terms of payment. It is also the key to keeping the impending deal under wraps, providing information to only the minimum of "need to know" parties, and complying with all legislation.
Proper preparation can lead to a business being paired with its eventual new owner, months and even years in advance of the exit deal. Such planning is a hallmark of our success.
Planning for the target market is what a business does to become successful in selling its goods or services.
