Buying a Business or Company

Has the time come for you to think about alternative ways of growing your business? If so, the acquisition of another business may complement organic growth and enable you to expand more quickly. Buying or merging with another business can create greater value at a faster speed if you seek expert advice as part of the process.

Buying another business can however be risky and you should therefore consider your motivation and strategy carefully before proceeding and how and why your business plus another will enable you to increase business value overall. Two and two can make five or more if your strategy is well thought through..

  • Testing and providing a critique of your strategy
