Selling Your Business

An Honest Approach to Selling Your Company

At KCBC we do not charge commission. No fixed fee. Just sound advice based on solid experience. KCBC is not a broker. We don’t sell businesses. You do. You may want to take a supposedly easy route by appointing one of the many companies and brokers offering to sell companies, but they will all charge you up front and promise a “free valuation.” Their valuation may be free, but it is also worthless.

Realise Your Dream

They are working a numbers game. 80% of their clients do not find a buyer. You have a 1 in 5 chance. Meanwhile they have all your fees upfront. They will tell you that they will offer your company to a series of potential buyers and create “competitive tension” to increase the price. They will prepare a company profile for you and then you will sit and wait. And wait.

You Know Your Business Better Than Anyone

With help from KCBC you can extract the maximum possible value, prepare the company for sale and take it to market. It’s a

pro-active and positive method that we know works.

There is no getting away from the fact that preparing a business for sale is a rigorous and tough process. But it is just that, a process. At KCBC we will walk you through the process step by step and pre-empt the forthcoming negotiations and sale. We only charge a daily rate and we can do as much or as little of the work as required.

Be Fully Prepared

The end result will be a company fully prepared for sale. At that point, whether you decide to use a broker, or as we would recommend, find a suitable buyer yourself, you will have a sensible company valuation, a transparent management structure and a set of robust financials that you can stand by with confidence as you invite interested parties to visit your company.
