We can conduct a confidential advertising strategy by tying interested buyers to a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) to keep company information and internal knowledge private. You may wish to keep information concerning your business sale out of the public domain to protect your business against competitors by delaying the release of sensitive information. Carrying out due diligence is also key when conversing with prospective buyers poised to submit a competitive offer for your business.
When preparing your gym, leisure centre, hairdressers or barbershop for sale, you will need to ensure that it is presented in the best possible condition to maximise sale value. Conducting a review of your business to identify inefficiencies can help establish a plan of action that can streamline company operations and improve efficiency.
Carrying out seller due diligence is vital as it can verify the background of interested buyers to ensure they are legitimate and erase any uncertainty. Due diligence consists of delving into the financial history of the individual, ensuring they have acted professionally with previous business interests.
In addition to conducting due diligence, proper record keeping, and bookkeeping can reflect on your professionalism and the organisational standards adhered to by the business. A financial summary will be required by prospective buyers during the early stages of the business sale journey to assess the health of the business. Failure to have such information to hand could delay the business sale journey and paint your business as inefficient and unorganised.
