Selling your Business – Realise the value.

The prime objective of Hornblower is to sell established SME businesses for the optimum value – releasing the owners from the day-to-day involvement in the business and realising the full value.

Working with a small number of clients, our hands-on service coupled with our extensive network of buyers ensures you are prepared for the sale and we achieve a high success rate.

Our Business Sales Service will manage the complete Selling Process from the initial idea through to the successful sale – all the time adding value to your business.
