What our customers think

We used Tim to help us sell a company. Throughout the process, Tim was very professional and extremely helpful. In two areas, in particular, we would have been at sea without his help: the initial preparation and research; the experience in negotiating with acquirers. I have no hesitation in recommending Tim and his team.

What makes one business worth more than another?

The first is owned by a husband and wife team who have built a successful software business. This business has a worldwide customer base and long-term contracts. I’ve been negotiating with a prospective buyer and we now have the outline terms of a deal that exceeds the owners’ expectations.

Snakes and Ladders in business

Don't overlook acquisitions as a way to grow your business. Buying a business., when done correctly, can save you time, effort and money.

Routes to exit your business

The key to choosing the right exit route from your business is what you want from the sale.

Getting your business ready for sale

Most businesses are not saleable and the received wisdom amongst the community of business advisors is that only 25% actually sell. The rest either die on the vine when the owners retire (many businesses are not really businesses, just jobs) or are handed over to the next generation – of family or leader.
