Realise the full value of your business

At Hornblower we offer a bespoke service in order to find the right buyer for our clients’ businesses; preparation is key as well as the close
management of the eventual due diligence and transaction process.

Our business sale and acquisition consultants are highly experienced in selling established SME businesses and negotiating the optimum value. We work closely with clients from the outset to gain a full understanding of their business so that we can truly demonstrate the value of the business to prospective buyers.

Our Business Sales Service will manage the complete Selling Process from the initial idea through to the successful sale, allowing clients to focus on running their business whilst we find the right buyer and keep the transaction costs to a minimum.

Business Sale Service

Our marketing is highly process driven and designed to generate as much interest as possible in the shortest period of time so that we achieve the optimum range of offers. Being specialists in selling
engineering, technology and B2B service sector businesses, we have an extensive network of buyers who are actively looking for businesses in these areas. We also research the market fully to identify and approach strategic trade buyers for your business.

Once the Heads of Terms agreement has been signed and the due
diligence and transaction process begins, we remain in close contact with both parties to ensure that issues on either side are dealt with
effectively in order both to keep the deal on track and reduce clients’ legal costs.

Why chose Hornblower to sell your business?

  1. We achieve over 80% success rate on selling
    businesses. Much of the competition achieves less than 25%.

  3. You will deal with one point of contact, an
    experienced M&A consultant
    from first meeting
    to successful sale.
  4. We are sector focused, so we understand our
    clients’ key business metrics, and our database
    of active buyers is sector focused.
  5. We research the market to identify the most
    suitable buyers for your business.
  6. We ensure you are prepared for the sale of your business with appropriate documentation at the ready and we actively manage the transaction process from Heads of Terms to completion,
    reducing clients’ legal fees.
