Selling your business will probably be the most significant business related project you undertake.
For many of our clients this starts with an Exit Strategy Review. This exercise gives Seneca a detailed knowledge of the business and of the population of global strategic buyers, both trade and financial. This ensures we are able to engage with the right potential buyers at the right time and in the right way to maximise value and achieve other shareholder and management objectives.
This can mean immediate engagement with one or more buyers, particularly where a credible approach has been received. Although typically the right approach may be a longer period of preparation aimed at encouraging a pre-emptive offer from the best buyer or in readiness for a controlled auction process at a later date.
In either situation, the Seneca team work alongside shareholders and management teams to craft bespoke correspondence for each strategic trade buyer and private equity investor. We then engage with these parties in the most appropriate manner to ensure these bespoke messages have maximum impact and allow each buyer’s appetite for the business to build.
Our partner led approach then delivers best in class negotiation and execution, actively managing the sale process and maintaining competitive tension through to legal completion.
