There are plenty of places to turn for help with selling your business, but not all have your best interests at heart. Most simply want to broker a deal, whatever the outcome. Often their focus is on meeting the needs of the buyer or investor.
F4S works entirely on your behalf, and our work starts well ahead of the sales process. We help to get your business ready for a sale, so you get the maximum value possible.
To do that you need to address the two key ingredients investors always seek: growth potential and risk mitigation. They want to ensure they buy into a business with a clear direction that operates within a responsible governance framework.
1) The Right Strategy
Our engagement with clients normally starts with a two day session with the executive team. The focus is on uncovering hidden value in the business, the capability to deliver and the discovery of inherent risks. From this comes a set of actionable deliverables, set against timeframes which we help monitor on an ongoing basis.
Companies must manage risk. That means frameworks must be in place to satisfy any potential buyer or investor. F4S has developed its own proprietary process and checklists to ensure your business is ready for sale. That includes assessing contracts to address governance and commercial risk issues.
