We can help you buy a business

Owning a business can be one of the best ways to create recurring income and an accumulation of wealth.

There are a wide range of motivations for you to acquire a business, whether it’s to be your own boss, to have more flexibility and control over your schedule, to replace a job or to pursue a hobby.

Owning your own business can be highly rewarding however, the time and costs of starting a business from scratch are often significantly underestimated.

Furthermore, it is common knowledge that 20% of businesses fail in their first year and around 60% will go bust within their first three years..

The above considerations illustrate some of the potential benefits in acquiring an established business.

Businesses are bought and sold everyday for a multitude of reasons and Marshall Sterling is well positioned to source and transact lower-middle market opportunities. (Typically defined as a business with annual revenues between 5 million and 50 million).

Our services are tailored to your specific needs, with a typical “buy-side” engagement involving the following steps:

We assist our clients with the development of their acquisition plans and strategies.
This would typically involve consulting to understand the specific requirements and motives relation to the desire for a business acquisition.

We assist our clients in developing financial valuation models, conducting research relating to current industry matrix and setting expectations.

We will coordinate the process of targeting potential acquisition targets including contacting and screening opportunities.

At the point where we have identified an attractive and viable business acquisition opportunity, we assist our clients in negotiating and structuring the acquisition, coordinating with our clients’ legal, accounting, tax and specialist advisers.

Making use of our FCA Authorisation and network of corporate and institutional counterparties, we can assist our clients in obtaining financing for their business acquisition.

After a detailed initial consultation and follow up confirmation dialogue, we would typically engage our clients on a monthly retainer basis and implement a success fee, thus providing you, our client with the peace of mind that our objectives and performance thereof are well aligned.

If you are considering a merger or acquisition, or disposal; or are simply looking into buying a business, get in contact and we can help.
