Owners Selling a Business

Selling your Business

“A lifetime can be spent building a business; but you only sell once.”

Selling a business that has been a big part of your life is a watershed moment that can sometimes be an emotional decision and not just a financial one. Whether you reached a decision to go for a complete exit in days or years, once this is your goal then there are typically two key considerations:

  1. Achieving fair value for the business you have created: Being a successful entrepreneur can be all consuming and there comes a point when some owner managers simply wish to step back and enjoy the fruits of the wealth they’ve created. Others are still full of passion for entrepreneurship but want to move onto a new and exciting opportunity in another industry.
  2. Leaving the business in good hands: In the absence of a natural successor to carry on the business the sale of your equity may represent the culmination of a careful succession plan – or it may be the start of one. Every situation is different, and Pemba Capital Partners will bring specific expertise to the table in assisting business owners implementing the appropriate succession solution. Sometimes we back an insider who takes the business forward. In other situations we utilise our extensive network and sector contacts to round out the management team and make a clean exit happen smoothly. Alternatively, we may offer the opportunity to integrate your company into one of our existing Buy and Build platforms. Whichever of these is applicable we will work with you to enable you and your business to move forwards.
