How we evaluate your company

The first step to selling your company for the best price is knowing its market value. To do this, we use methods most suitable for your particular company, which take into account both the financial and strategic aspects of your business:

– The company’s history and growth potential;

– The company’s financial performance and profitability;

– The company’s cash flow and ability to generate cash;

– The company’s net worth and debt;

– The company’s market and competition;

– The company’s risks and opportunities.

There are different methods of valuing companies, such as discounted cash flow, sales multiple, profit multiple and equity value. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages, and must be applied according to the characteristics of each company.

We carry out an accurate and reliable assessment, using the best practices and tools on the market. This way, you will have a solid basis for defining the sales price of your company and negotiating with potential buyers.

How to find the best buyers for your company?

After evaluating your company, the next step is to find the ideal buyers for your business. To do this, it is necessary to carry out prospecting and publicity work, which consists of:

– Identify the profiles of buyers who have the interest and financial capacity to acquire your company;

– Create informative material about your company, highlighting its strengths and competitive differences;

– Contact selected buyers, presenting the opportunity to purchase your company;

– Sign a confidentiality agreement (NDA) with interested buyers, to protect your company’s sensitive information;

– Send an information memorandum (CIM) to qualified buyers, containing your company’s main data and indicators.

We have the best buyers for your company. We use our own network of contacts and partners in the market. We have access to national and international investors, investment funds, companies that compete or complement your business, among others. Furthermore, we have experience in creating attractive and persuasive materials that arouse the interest of buyers.

How to negotiate the best value for your company?

After promoting your company, the third step is to negotiate the best value for your business. To do this, you need to follow the following steps:

– Receive proposals from interested buyers, which must contain the value offered by your company, payment conditions, required guarantees and other relevant terms;

– Evaluate the proposals received, comparing their pros and cons, and select the most advantageous ones;

– Negotiate with selected buyers, seeking to improve proposals or resolve any impasses;

– Choose the final proposal that meets your expectations and needs.

We know how to deal with buyers in a professional and assertive way, defending their interests and objectives. We also know how to conduct negotiations in an ethical and transparent manner, respecting established rules and deadlines.

How to close the deal on the sale of your company?

The last step to selling your company is to close the deal, that is, to formalize the transfer of ownership and control of your company to the buyer. To do this, you need to carry out the following activities:

– Sign your company’s purchase and sale contract, which must contain all the details and clauses agreed between the seller and the buyer;

– Comply with the obligations and conditions set out in the contract, such as delivering documents, carrying out audits, paying the price, etc.;

– Transition the management of your company to the buyer, ensuring the continuity of operations and the satisfaction of customers, suppliers and employees;

– Close the sales process for your company.

We can assist in drafting and reviewing your company’s purchase and sale contract. We can also monitor the execution of the obligations and conditions of the contract, avoiding problems or conflicts with the buyer. Finally, we can guide the transition of your company’s management to the buyer, facilitating the adaptation and integration of the parties involved.
