Business Sale Market Testing

What is it?

Shield’s Business Sale Market Testing allows you to explore discreetly what value you could achieve, without committing yourself to selling a business.

You’ll learn what potential buyers do and don't appreciate in your business, so that if you decide to trade on, you can put those insights to work until you do sell the business.

Who is it for?

Owners and managers of businesses with profits of over £500k, in any sector.

How long does it take?

Normally 3-6 months.

Why should I retain a specialist M&A advisor to test the market, and why Shield?

Shield has pioneered this interactive process involving key potential buyers for the business and knows how to position you so that there is no loss of face or credibility should you decide not to sell.

In M&A work, as in most things, specialisation leads to better results. We are able to hit the ground running on every assignment; we understand the psychology of sell-side negotiations and we're up to date with all the latest market developments. We derive great satisfaction from seeing our clients richly rewarded by our efforts on their behalf.

You will be treated as a valued client, not a target for sales of other financial services. We'll give you senior attention and old-fashioned independent advice, untainted by any conflicts of interest, such as attempts to finance selected buyers at the same time. And you'll get an M&A team who understand the process and psychology of divestiture work, not fresh from an IPO or a bond issue.

How do you charge for Business Sale Market Testing?

If you are interested in selling a business, please contact us to discuss your needs. No two clients are ever the same and each deal we strike is a unique win / win arrangement.

Next steps?

If your profits are over £500k we would be delighted to have a no obligation discussion on how Business Sale Market Testing might help you. We appreciate that when selling a business confidentiality is vital and understand that you may wish to remain anonymous by using a pseudonym. We are happy to call you outside of office hours or at weekends if you prefer.
