Selling your business

Are you searching for a person to take over one or more divisions of your business, for a new shareholder or would you like to sell your business as a whole? We will analyse your business and personal situation and search for the most suitable buyer.

SDM makes a point of maximising the value of your business and goes for results. Our fees consequently also depend entirely on the success of the sales transaction (‘no cure, no pay’).

How much is my business worth today?
SDM draws up a detailed valuation of your business based on experience and internationally accepted methods.

How can I quickly and efficiently increase the value of my business?
SDM gives advice on which actions you should best undertake before putting your business in the shop window:
  • Which departments are under-performing and what can you do about it?
  • What available funds can you use to optimise the value of your business?
  • Are you selling your business entirely or would it be better if you remain a part shareholder?

All the strategic options are summarised in a comprehensible statement. The sales process begins on that basis.

SDM advises you before, during and after the sale
To find a suitable party to acquire your business, SDM works together with an extensive network or relations both nationally and internationally.

We draw up the memorandum of sale by mutual consultation. Via international databases and thanks to our close contacts with international partners we quickly find the most interesting candidates.

We lead and guide the complete transaction: from the negotiations to the letter of intent and the analysis of the books (due diligence) to advice on the drafting of the contracts. Naturally we will keep you updated of all the developments. SDM will also remain at your disposal after the sale for help and advice.
