Business Sale Preparation

Selling your business is a significant event. Ensure you are getting maximum value for your business. Often businesses are not sale ready and therefore are sold at a discount. We get your business sale ready by ensuring your financial information is sound, your business processes are clearly transferable and getting the intellectual property out of your head and into the business so as a new owner can transition smoothly. Often this can involve delaying the sale until we mutually agree that the business is ready for sale.

We can project manage the sale process but working in collaboration with your professional advisers and business broker to put together a detailed Investor/Sale IM for your business.


Does your business need a valuation?

We have experiences in valuing businesses for a range of reasons including:

  • For insurance purposes/dispute
  • Sale purposes
  • Obtaining finance
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Partnership dissolutions
  • Relationship Property disputes
  • Succession Planning
  • Litigation

At BASE we have the ability to value businesses in any industry.

Every business is unique and we do not provide a one size fits all approach. Simply providing a multiplier on past earnings is not sufficient.

We learn about the business, study the industry, consider future sustainable earnings and provide a detailed valuation based on a wide range of factors.

Mergers & Acquisitions

As is the case with the majority of business mergers and acquisitions, there is a period of due diligence before the contract moves to unconditional status.

Engage us to assist you with the due diligence process.

We will undertake due diligence for you and review all aspects of the business and provide you with a written report.

A business investment is often a life changing decision and you are tying up a significant amount of capital for a number of years.

Getting a fresh independent analysis of your new capital investment is a crucial process.

Often due diligence can uncover aspects of the business which may not necessarily be a deal breaker but will equip you with the evidence to get the best information for the negotiation process.

Non-Performing Assets

Every business experiences ups and downs, particularly in the early stages and in periods following growth and can face different challenges. A wrong decision can land you in the red, or cash flow problems may be holding you back. Once you’ve taken the wrong path or made mistakes, it can be hard to see your way back to profitability. But in most cases, it is possible if you’ve got the right accounting and financial management firm on your side.

We will work closely with you and your team to understand how the business has been run and identify areas that need to be improved. We don’t see problems; we see solutions.

We have had considerable insolvency experience with receiverships, liquidations, part 5 creditor compromises and business turnarounds with successful outcomes.
