At Smith Holland Advisors, we focus exclusively on sell-side M&A advisory services and our business transfer agents have the expertise needed to help navigate the complex process to sell a business in England. With offices in London, Chicago, Houston and Dallas, our M&A firm has a global footprint that combines local market experience with an international network of qualified buyers across many different industries.

England Middle Market Mergers and Acquisitions

With the uncertainty surrounding the Brexit transition, the UK market for mergers and acquisitions activity has understandably declined since the decision to leave Europe was made official. However, with world-class universities, favorable business climate conditions, international transportation hubs and the home to some of the best football clubs in the world, middle market companies in England continue to be in high demand among private equity investors and institutional buyers. And while selling a business in England doesn’t happen overnight, our business transfer agents in England can help accelerate the process to sell your business by combining over 30 years of transactional insights with our global network of qualified buyers. Regardless of if your business is based out of London or Liverpool, our sell-side M&A advisors understand that there will always be a limited number of qualified buyers within your local market, which is why we take a global approach when targeting both local and international buyers with the right message. Smith Holland has sold businesses all throughout England and the United Kingdom, and with our exclusive focus on sell-side representation only, our England business transfer agents can help you secure the best value when it comes to sell your business.

 

 

Serious About Selling Your Business in England? Let’s talk.

Stressful. Unpredictable. Costly. These are just some of the words that describe the process to sell a business, but working with the right business transfer agent in England can make all the difference. Selling a business in England is a complex process that is inherently more risky for the sell-side of the transaction. Our England business brokers understand this better than most because everyone on the Smith Holland team has personally started, operated and sold businesses of our own in the past. We know how stressful the process can be which is why our sell-side M&A advisors take a different approach to help business owners plan and execute exit strategies that deliver real results. We put results before fees and accountability, integrity and professionalism is at the core of everything we do. While finding a M&A advisor in England is not difficult, there are few sell-side M&A advisors that have the global footprint, experience and passion for achieving results that Smith Holland Advisors has. We know that selling your business for the right price is equally as important as selling to the right buyer and we make sure the deal chemistry is there before a deal moves forward. And while other England business transfer agents use a “one size fits all” approach, our M&A advisors use bespoke exit strategies that are designed around your financial goals with complete transparency through the entire process. At Smith Holland, our goal is to make the process to sell your business as seamless as possible and our business transfer agents in England get results faster by using industry-specific exit strategies that put your business in front of the right type of buyers.

Employees must be dealt with using compassion and that means finding the right time and place to tell your employees about the sale.

Our mergers and acquisitions advisors will help you understand the best strategy options that make sense for your business and your financial goals. Every business is different and every M&A deal requires a bespoke strategy to get results. We understand that selling quickly can often outweigh the desire to sell for maximum value and our M&A advisors always put your bests interest above everything else. While our sell-side M&A advisors always aim to sell your business for the best price possible, we understand that the “need for speed” can sometimes be more important and our England business transfer agents will guide you through all of the viable exit strategies for your specific situation. Asking price will always be the biggest factor that controls the speed of the transaction and our mission is to help you secure the best value for your company whilst being mindful of your timeframe requirements. Smith Holland Advisors is a full-service M&A firm that focuses on sell-side M&A advisory services only and we handle the entire process from start to finish. Sell your business the proper way with experienced England M&A advisors that focus on results, not fees.

01

Strategy

When it comes to selling your business, every decision matters. Choosing the right exit strategy and properly preparing the business for the sale process can have a major impact on the final outcome. The Smith Holland team understands that every deal is unique and securing the best value for a divestiture is primarily based on the value story presented to strategic buyers. Our M&A advisors have extensive experience with creating robust company prospectus presentations that highlight the key selling points, revenue synergies and potential growth opportunities that give serious acquisition candidates enough information to prepare an offer. We take the time to fully understand your company’s strengths and weaknesses and we use that information to build a highly targeted list of potential acquisition candidates, which includes both private equity and strategic buyers. Maximizing shareholder value requires meticulous planning, preparation and skilled execution, and the Smith Holland team has the expertise needed to effectively communicate your company’s value story, even when changing market conditions or other operational challenges arise.

02

Execute

With any financial investment, the exit point is just as important as the entry point and protecting shareholder value requires precise execution. At Smith Holland, we work exclusively with clients on the sell-side of the transaction and this concentrated focus has been instrumental in helping our clients manage unavoidable risks while consistently creating a competitive bidding environment to enhance value. Our proven exit strategies are custom-tailored to the circumstances of each specific transaction that we advise on and our experienced M&A advisors have the transactional insights needed to quickly anticipate and adapt as market conditions change during the deal lifecycle. The risks will always be greater on the sell-side of the transaction and finding the right buyer is equally as important as selling for the right price. We help craft deal structures that are positioned for long-term success and work with both sides throughout the entire process to drive the transaction in a definitive and effective manner. The M&A advisors at Smith Holland have advised on hundreds of transactions over the past decade and tactile execution is at the core of everything we do.

03

Closing

At Smith Holland, every customized exit strategy that we develop is built on the foundation of closing success probability. We fully understand that a company valuation is meaningless if your M&A firm can’t actually deliver a qualified buyer that’s willing to close the deal at that price. Getting to a successful closing requires a realistic valuation strategy and the Smith Holland team has extensive experience with carefully orchestrating a delicate balance between what a company might be worth today compared to what it could be worth in the future if the growth opportunities are implemented. We provide complete guidance through every step of the transaction lifecycle including crafting your company’s value story, managing the buyer outreach process, negotiating deal structure, preparing the offer and purchase agreements, facilitating the due diligence process, and we don’t stop working until the outcome you envision for your deal is achieved. Smith Holland is a full-service M&A advisory firm and our commitment to delivering measurable results is matched only by our passion for helping clients achieve their goals.
