Thinking of Selling?

Thinking of selling your business? This is why you should sell with Richmond Capital Partners. Quite simply we are industry specialists in business disposals. We are unique in that we project manage the sale of your business from engagement through to completion. While providing a results-focused business transfer service, we are more than just brokers. As ‘advisers’ we are with you every step of the way offering a complete confidential and straightforward professional service with unlimited support.

While we do require a small upfront fee to cover our costs, the majority of our fee is contingent, based on the sucessful sale of your business. We share the risk. We only profit when your deal completes.

Whatever your post-sale aspirations, whether you are a business owner seeking to realise your investment and retire/embark on a new project, or to find a successor or dispose to a MBO/MBI team – or as a group seeking to dispose of a non-core subsidiary, let us help you get there!

“My business, Loxleys, has been trading since 1854 so I saw myself very much as a custodian of the business. Using Richmond to sell my business was ideal. Their network of contacts meant that I did not need to market the business extensively. Paul Holohan found a strategic purchaser and negotiated a deal that I was happy with. The business has gone on to thrive under the new owners which pleases me. ”

Tim Carrington, former owner/MD of Loxleys Ltd

“I’d known Paul Holohan and Richmond for several years before I decided to sell my printing business. Their industry knowledge was critical in advising me of my options which they did in “easy to understand” language. It was a straightforward process and I would recommend Richmond if you wish to sell your business.”

Mark Medland, IW Beacon Ltd

FREE Business Evaluation

This is not a basic appraisal. It is an ‘evaluation’ not only advising on the value of the business but also on the likelihood of a sale, how to time your run and issues to be addressed in order to unlock hidden value.  We will analyse the whole business and advise if we think it is saleable and whether we have current interested parties on record. This is a great way to explore your options without committing. The free business evaluation provides:

  1. An approximate valuation.  How much is my business worth?
  2. Highlight any barriers/obstacles to selling
  3. Likelihood of sale
  4. Next steps

The following services may also be of interest depending upon your requirements:

Brokers

If you are a broker or business transfer agent with clients for sale in our sectors of expertise and wish to benefit from our position as UK market leaders in these sectors, please contact us to discuss how we may be able to work together for mutual benefit through combining our resources.

Negotiations service

Have you been approached independently regarding the sale of your business? Perhaps you don’t want the formality of engaging a broker but would like professional help and support to get you to the finishing line. We can help!

Try Another path: VIAMBO

This is a proven alternative method to selling your business if you have a strong second tier management where you ultimately remain in control until paid in full.More Information

No Fee Sale

Can’t afford fees but want to sell  business? Don’t be put off! We have a database of retained acquirer clients which means no fee for the vendor. We cannot guarantee a match but we can advise accordingly. Please see a selection of our registered acquirers.

Valuation-only service

Are you simply looking for a valuation only at this stage to get an idea before commiting to a sale? Perhaps you need a valuation for insurance purposes, as part of an internal MBO, shareholder dispute or to raise capital for growth. Whatever your reason, we can provide a full professional business valuation. And the fee paid towards this will be offset against any future sale fee should you decide to sell with us at any point in the future!

We value businesses all the time for owners and other professional advisers and note that many vendors are given false hope on business valuations by brokers simply to secure the customer. Consequently their business never sells. We use our own in-house developed Acquis valuation model using several different methods to give an accurate valuation that ensures a realistic asking price when you decide to put your business on the market. We look at a range of factors when reaching a valuation looking beyond just historical accounting information.

We will also update this for free anytime in the future should you decide not to proceed with the sale right now.

Surgeries

We have previsouly held a number of Seminars in London and Birmingham focused primarily on selling businesses and mergers & acquisitions. Unfortunately, over the years so many of these have cropped up all over the country with brokers simply using it as a way to pitch for business and the real reasons of using this as an educational tool has been lost. We have now opted to use our expertise to regularly run “surgeries” in various parts of the UK focused entirely on one-to-one sessions with our clients whatever their strategic options. These are very much ‘information’ sessions… we will not “sell” to you! They are FREE!

MBI/MBO support

Management Buy-Outs (MBO) are quite common amongst senior management. If you are considering this option, contact us to see how we can guide and support you. We can also support Management Buy-In candidates/teams in their search for suitable acquisitions. Read more
