Sell your business
Helping you maximise value when you sell your business.
Our role comprises of deep sector research to locate the widest range of potential acquirers, agreement of the transaction by experienced negotiators and liaising with all other parties and advisers to ensure that the transaction is successfully completed. The process of exiting your business can take several years, and the reality is, if you want the best deal possible, you need to be proactive.
Oasis Europe will provide the unique expertise required to draw in strategic acquirers, leverage competitive tension and manage the flow of information to negotiate the best possible terms of sale. It’s a craft we have spent decades practising and refining – both in our own businesses and for clients.

Selling your business: the top 10 things to know
It takes time. You don’t want to be in a rush and forced to settle for a sub-optimal deal. Being strategic and prepared to negotiate in the best environment will ensure you get the best results for you and your business.
Competition: There are more people trying to sell their business than there are acquirers to buy them. You need a competitive advantage to improve your chance of success.
Waiting is not a good idea. The best acquirers are often not proactively looking for you. They will only find you if you approach them.
Selling is not the only option! We have helped many clients step back from daily management of their business while retaining ownership.
Acquirers pay more when they sense demand. The best negotiating leverage is to have multiple interested parties so competitive tension can be leveraged to secure the best terms for you and your business.
Strategic acquirers pay more. The most obvious buyer is often not the best one. While you know your industry inside out, often the best acquirer is someone outside your industry or an overseas buyer planning a strategic expansion.
The world is small in M&A. Acquirers may want to be expanding their geographic reach or entering new markets. Currently our buyers are geographically split evenly between the UK and overseas, spanning Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas.
An acquirer’s need is often quickly filled in a competitive marketplace. This may give you only a short window of opportunity to ensure your business is ready to sell and fulfill this need. If you wait until you need to sell, you may miss that critical window.
Selling your business requires very different expertise to running your business. Having specialist M&A representation can make a substantial impact on your final transaction value and terms of sale.
The standard process used by brokers can damage your business. A strategy that retains your anonymity while directly approaching targeted strategic acquirers avoids the risk of devaluing and destabilising your business.
