You may have been
giving the sale of all or part of your business, whether now, or in the
next few years, some thought:
- It may be the time for your retirement plan or exit
strategy to be put into effect;
- You may want more working capital to help other parts of
your business; or
- It may be opportune to ‘cash in’ now to maximise the value
of your business.
- We’ll deal with you with honesty, discretion,
professionalism, confidentiality and a straight-up approach. We
have an excellent reputation for acquisitions in this trade which we
want to see develop further still.
- There's no middlemen to deal with - we're not brokers and
we buy only for ourselves.
- Over the past couple of decades, we’ve successfully acquired
many businesses similar to yours through agreeing good,
competitive, realistic valuations. We’re keen for this to
continue so you won’t be dealing with time-wasters;
- Your business, name, reputation, customers and staff will all
be in good, safe hands. We appreciate the dedication and hard
work involved over the years; we preserve identities and trading
names; we maintain customer service and customer loyalty; and we
keep a high retention of existing staff. In summary, we understand
the businesses like yours that we’ve acquired and we're keen to see
- Your transaction can be well structured for tax purposes
thanks to our good knowledge, experience, and advice on tax matters.
This can make an enormous difference in maximising your return and
keeping the Treasury’s take to an absolute minimum.
- Transaction costs can be minimised. Selling a business
can be an expensive process with high professional fees...but it
doesn't have to be! We can talk you through each step of the
process, through each of the documents, etc. This leaves you free to
spend more of the money where it really counts!
- Guaranteed finance is already in place so you can talk to
us if your company is large and we’ve the flexibility to buy it if
it’s small. In short: if you turnover £20m, £20k, or anything in
between – we are very interested.
Here’s just one comment from the many vendors that we’ve dealt with over
“I have no hesitation in recommending Anderstore to any other
prospective seller. All monies were paid in full, and on the exact
due date. The whole process was carried out in a very professional
manner with no problems or hitches.”
Additionally, in their letter
“[Anderstore] has been known to [NatWest
Bank] for five years, is held in very high regard, and during
this period the Bank has supported the business in its acquisition of
seven other operations.
Over recent years we have provided significant facilities to
assist with acquisitions and remain keen to continue our supportive
stance to this very well run operation”.
