Company sale and acquisition is a complex process usually taking 4 to 6 months or longer in case of any specific difficulties. After the actual sale of the company, another period of handover activities begins. This process involves both the previous and new owners and is structured to support the long-term continuity of the company and smooth transition to new management.
1. Initial contact
We are looking for you but there is a lot to go through. Do not hesitate to get in touch first.
2. Exchange of basic information
When we identify a good looking opportunity, we first try to exchange basic information. You help us take a look on basic numbers, profitability, and future market potential. The industry norm is to sign a non-disclosure agreement at this stage for you to make sure no sensitive information leaks to any 3rd party.
3. Letter of intent
In case your company is a good fit for our needs we will hold series of meetings and further information exchanges with the aim to get enough information to provide you with non-binding transaction proposal called Letter of intent. Letter of intent would include a potential price range for your company and other critical information.
4. Due diligence
In case you are comfortable with the conditions outlined in the Letter of intent, we will deep dive into your company's documents and carry out due diligence in financial and legal areas of your company. We will focus on aspects which will influence the performance of the company in the future. The results of the due diligence will impact the final commercial offer and proposed contract.
5. Commercial offer
We will provide you with a commercial offer based on the results of due diligence.
Successful execution of transaction agreements is a result of intensive engagement of both the seller and buyer, together with any potential banks participating in the transaction. Legal representatives of seller and buyer must be tasked to find ways to incorporate the needs of both parties but at the same time not to insist on minor areas which might, in the end, break the deal.
7. Company handover
After successful execution of the agreement, the seller and the buyer will for another 6 to 12 months cooperate on the handover of the company to ensure a successful continuity of the business. The intensity of the cooperation can range from the day-to-day presence of the seller in the company to several phone calls a month and fades gradually over time.
