Planning to sell your business? What you need to know about a trade sale

Are you contemplating the sale of your business to another company?

Whether you are thinking of exiting in the next 12 months or not for several years it is important that shareholders understand the stages involved in the sale of a business to another company in order to maximise their own prospects of achieving a successful outcome when the time comes.

Selling a business is a once in a lifetime event for most shareholders and is likely to be the largest financial transaction they will ever carry out. It will also have lasting implications for themselves, their family and their employees.

Whether an exit is anticipated in the next 12 months or not for several years, a better outcome will almost certainly be achieved if the business owner has a clear idea of their options at an early stage and how their exit will be achieved. It is often not immediately obvious who to talk to or what questions to ask when starting to think about your exit options, and selling a business is something few business owners will have experience of doing before.

At this webinar we will outline the key issues which business owners should consider as they start thinking about their exit, focusing on the option of selling to another company (a trade sale).

At the end of the seminar attendees will have an understanding of the steps involved in the sale of a business to a UK or overseas company, an appreciation of how companies are valued in the real world by corporate buyers and have sufficient knowledge to start planning their exit and seeking out specialist advice.
