Buying, selling and merging businesses
Whether you are about to purchase your first business, an existing business looking to expand by purchasing additional businesses, merging with another business, or looking to sell your business, WK can assist.
Buying a business?
We have seen many proposals from clients over the years and know just what to look for when reviewing a prospective business on your behalf.
We can provide an opinion on the asking price and work with you on any issues.
We can also conduct a detailed evaluation of the business during purchase (due diligence) or after your purchase to help integrate the new business into your business strategies and culture.
Selling your business?
We can help prepare a valuation from which a suitable asking price can be determined and assist with the preparation of an information package for potential buyers to maximise the chances of a good price.
Ideally, we like to work with our clients through a 10 step process to Maximizing the Value of a Business on Exit. This works on various aspects of your business to ensure that you can get the maximum price for the business.
Merging a business?
While similar to purchasing a new business, merging a business is more complex in that two different strategies and cultures need to be combined into one. We have specific programmes utilising leading edge tools that we utilise to help you through this complex situation.
WK’s strong business relationships and ability to recognise a unique opportunity was behind the merger of two Marlborough wine companies in 2015.
