Buying a Business

Finding the perfect match is not easy in any acquisition, 75% of all acquisitions fail to add value to the acquirer…yes really!

The best deals are rarely on the active market, they are flying under the radar. So, first things first, who may be up for selling if the deal works for both parties?



Of course, you may have a target in mind, but even if you don’t, we know how to find them and what the critical questions to ask the vendor are.

fds can help you with:

  • Understanding what your target needs to look like
  • Help you analyse how you can afford to fund it and then find the finance for you (for more information on funding, click here)
  • Look at deal makers and breakers
  • Help with the important courting process
  • Value the business and identify realistic synergies
  • Plan the integration process with you

Or alternatively, for a small fee of £500 +VAT, we can offer a reactive approach, which includes:

  • Adding your requirements to our website
  • Including your requirements on our monthly Business Opportunities mail-out, which is sent to our 600+ referrer contacts.
