M&A – Buying & Selling A Business
In the growth and development of most small and medium size companies, a time comes when you face the realization that you must make one of several decisions concerning the future of your business. Should you continue to grow organically or through acquisition, find a likely buyer or develop a strategic alliance? These are difficult decisions that most business owners face during the life of your company. White Knight Solutions can help evaluate the best course of action for you to consider.
Selling All or a Part of Your Business
Never put a “For Sale” sign on your company. When the time comes for you to consider selling your business, seek assistance from a White Knight Solutions consultant. You need to make sure the company is ready for a sale that will result in receiving the maximum market value for your business, whether that comes from a financial or a strategic buyer. When your company is ready for sale, the White Knight Solutions team can conduct a search for the most likely buyer. The search process will be conducted in a confidential manner so that your employees, customers, vendors and competitors are never aware that your company is seeking a buyer.
Growing by Acquisition
No matter the size of the business, you must consider the strategy of growing through a strategic acquisition. Working with a White Knight Solutions consultant can facilitate the evaluation process so that you can make a timely and intelligent decision and continue to focus on the existing business while the White Knight Solutions team searches for the appropriate acquisition candidates. The search process can be done in a confidential manner so the marketplace/industry is not aware that your company is seeking an acquisition.
Many business owners overlook the benefits of developing a strategic alliance with another company. Some entrepreneurs want to maintain control of all aspects of their business and this may limit their potential growth opportunities. Others have recognized and benefited from forming strategic alliances with partners who also have benefited from a mutually beneficial relationship. Strategic alliances come in many forms, and a White Knight Solutions consultant can assist you in evaluating the benefits of this strategy.
