Business Divestment

Divestment of a business can be the single most important and valuable transaction in the life of the owners and shareholders. You can only sell once and that means that you only get one chance to get it right. Don’t take risks with such an important process. Deal with specialists with over 20 years of business sales experience to call upon.

We have learned that the following important points in over 4,500 business sales transactions:

  • Preparation adds dollars to the value of an enterprise. We join with business owners and their advisors to strategize and prepare the business for sale. We assess is a share sale or asset sale is the most effective means of selling. We address over 18 areas to maximise value and minimise costs such as Capital Gains Tax – and many more. Our preparation and planning guides include a review of both financial & non-financial factors to maximise you business value, and to have the business ready for your exit. An exit on your terms.

  • Competition adds value. The more potential purchasers and acquirers that we have competing for the business, the greater the value achieved. Over many years Benchmark has gained access to an extensive network of high nett worth individuals and investors across Australia and beyond. Benchmark’s advisors have connections to foreign nationals who are looking to acquire a business to support their permanent residency applications. We also have wide ranging contacts who seek strategic offshore investments in Australia. Our team will generate competitive tension by maximising the number of qualified buyers wanting to buy the business. A competitive sales process results in a higher price and better terms of sale, so that you can exit on your terms.

  • Confidentiality. If confidentiality is breached goodwill (value) is diminished. We apply rigorous processes and systems to ensure that only qualified parties have access to the sale data and information, and of course, we ensure that binding confidentiality agreements are executed before any information is exchanged. We also gain your approval before engaging with any party.
