M&A Advisory

How to sell a business

Selling a Technology Business

The first stage when considering selling your business is to arrange a confidential, no obligation consultation with a Node specialist advisor. We will take you through the process, achievability of your valuation, advice on potential purchases and an indication of timescales. Our fees are structured to ensure our goals are aligned with yours.

Planning and preparation are key to running a smooth transaction. Attention to this will ensure the transaction places less burden on you and the business at the time an offer is made and due diligence begins. It will also help the purchaser see the full potential in the business and so will help attribute the highest valuation possible.

This is a comprehensive review to evaluate all options and provide recommendations covering the following elements:

  • Sellers Objectives
  • Formulation of Disposal Strategy
  • Teaser documentation produced
  • Identification of Potential Acquirers
  • Non-disclosure agreements and teasers sent
  • Managing of Interested Parties
  • Heads of Terms & Exclusivity
  • Due Diligence
  • Process of Sale and Purchase agreement
  • Agreed handover and integration plan
  • Completion
  • Post Completion

We project manage the process with you and would input to the purchaser’s timetable so as to have one agreeable to both the buyer and the seller. We help avoid bottlenecks in the process and ensure it runs as efficiently as possible.

Our search for a potential purchaser would involve a search of our own databases plus approaches to businesses who we have knowledge of that we feel would see value in the acquisition. We would agree a list of targets with you and not make contact without your prior approval.

During the process, assistance would be provided in setting up an online data room and full advice on the documents required to populate this throughout the progression of the transaction.
