Company sales

At Ignition Corporate Finance, we have a wealth of experience in advising on the sale of owner managed and private equity backed companies.

We recognise that for many shareholders the sale of a private company can be a life-changing event. We also recognise their need to have absolute trust and confidence in their advisers. As a consequence, we carefully tailor each sale process to the particular objectives of the selling shareholders to maximise value and minimise disruption to the business.

We effectively and efficiently project manage every aspect of the transaction process, ensuring that the shareholders have sufficient time to continue to deliver the performance of the business whilst keeping them fully informed of the status of the project.

We take pride in our ability to identify truly strategic acquirers from around the world and in our ability to access their senior decision makers in the shortest possible time frame.

We work to maximise each and every commercial term of an agreed transaction through a confidential, competitive process and our pre-deal preparation is designed to ensure that any due diligence is purely confirmatory in nature.

Whether the shareholders are owner-managers, financial institutions or corporates seeking to divest of non-core subsidiaries, we can provide the right advice whenever it is required.
