All businesses at some point must face the prospect of what to do when the owner needs to retire.

Finding safe harbour for staff and clients can be a daunting task. Elsby Corporate Finance support our clients through the process by providing advice (Exit Planning) as to how to prepare the business for sale and what options are open to you.

We will give you an accurate and reasoned value of your business and who the best potential buyers might be.

Then when the time is right, we can help you find the right buyer and obtain the best return for your lifetime’s endeavours.


Exit Planning Advice

Gaining the best result in the timeframe

Exit planning is the process of strategizing and preparing for the eventual sale or transfer of a business. It involves identifying the goals and objectives of the business owner, assessing the current value of the business, and developing a plan to increase that value over time. This may include improving operations, diversifying revenue streams, and creating a strong management team. The ultimate goal of exit planning is to ensure a smooth and profitable transition for the business owner, whether they are retiring or moving on to other ventures.


Business Valuations

Giving reasoned value to a business

Understanding the true value of your business can be useful in several ways. Essential if you are considering selling or merging, but also valuable perhaps for planning, financial reporting, tax purposes, or to determine the worth of a business for potential investors.

Valuations can be performed using a variety of methods, including income-based, market-based, and asset-based approaches. The results of a valuation can provide valuable insights into the financial health of a business and help inform important decision-making processes.

Business Sales

Finding the best buyer(s) for the specific business and creating the best scenario to extract maximum value

Selling your business and finding the best home for your clients and staff can be an emotional and draining process. With experience of business sales in many different markets we support our clients through the whole process keeping the sale discrete and protecting the owner from passing interest. We ensure that together we have considered all options for the sale and that we clearly understand your goals and objectives.

We identify our target buyers and ensure that the opportunity is presented to them in a professional and discrete manner protecting your interests. Creating interest from multiple parties by presenting your business effectively we ensure that you can exit on the best possible terms.

Once an agreement is found we manage the process through due diligence to completion and then into the transition.
