Boss Mergers & Acquisitions™ - Mergers & Acquisitions for divestment

Considering Selling Your Business?

Just One Chance!


No company sets out to do a bad deal, yet we all know the facts; failures are rampant, and unfortunately, commonplace for both buyers and sellers.

Good deals are a combination of strategy, opportunity and execution. If you are looking to divest your company, it is most important that you get it right first time - as you only do it once.

Some common problems:


  • No strategic M&A plan or a poor quality, strategic exit plan
  • Protecting confidentiality to ensure that competitors, clients and employees do no get wind of the exit plan
  • Starting the exit process too late; to get it right, you need considerable time and planning.
  • Maintaining focus on your core business so performance does not suffer; letting the business slide while you deal with potential buyers is a common mistake that can have disastrous consequences
  • Wrong price, wrong timing. This could either be pitched too high or conversely, you could be under-valuing your business and fail to realise its true equity value 
  • Sorting the timewasters and the tyre kickers from the serious buyers
  • Inability to find the right buyers
  • Negotiations break down after time, money and effort have been invested in a sales process in which the end result is precisely nothing.
  • Poor presentation of the true assets of the business
  • DIY selling of the business is rarely successful and failure is due to a combination of the above problems
