A Business is Only Worth What an Acquirer Will Pay for it

Case Study Type

Disposal/Business Sale


A London based independent fostering agency who, at the time of sale, had 43 children in placements across the capital. The client had previously engaged with another advisor but were not happy with the process.


Eight received. Ranging from high hundreds of thousands to the multiple millions from reputable and synergistic companies all in the appropriate sector.


An offer 30% higher than that of the previous adviser.


Your company really is worth what someone will pay for it. If an acquirer wants your client base, or to expand into the area you cover, or they desperately want to get hold of your IP the value of your business to them can rise dramatically. The true worth of any business is only discovered at the point of the transaction. Our skills are in being abler to find a creative solution.


I really want to thank you for the major part you played in helping us sell our company. We gained 30% more in sales value once we were under your wing, throughout the process you were there for us.

The sales process was so important to us and it felt like we were the only ones you were working with as you gave us so much attention. It was so important for us to keep the company growing throughout the sales process and you enabled us to do this. - Client
