Our Latest Case Studies
“After deciding to sell our ecological consultancy business, which my wife and I had built from scratch almost 20 years ago, we approached a number of agencies to assist with the sale. We selected Avondale as it was clear from the start that they understood our business and what we were hoping to achieve with the sale. We could not recommend Avondale highly enough.”
“Sally and the team at Avondale made a complex and difficult process as smooth and painless as possible. Whilst we had to kiss a few frogs to get there, we are very happy with the fit found with EMW. This was only possible due to the volume of interested parties brought to the table. Sally was proactive and contactable throughout and the Avondale team were a pleasure to deal with every step of the way.”
“The team at Avondale, ably led by Simon Baldwin, have just been excellent from start to end. Having never sold a business before I was completely in the dark but having Simon at hand 24/7 to guide and advise was invaluable. I cannot recommend Avondale more highly if you are thinking about selling your business.”
“I had been fortunate to work with Avondale in a previous transaction, so when thinking about the next step for our business felt confident in seeking their guidance. I have been impressed by the Avondale team’s professionalism and their expertise was shone through when working throughout the pandemic. As a team, we felt we could trust Sally; she took the time to understand our priorities and, with a good sense of humour, supported us to feel confident during all stages of the negotiation.”
“I am delighted and excited for the Tyrefix team, as I believe with the support of Literacy Capital, the business will now have the resources required to capitalise on the significant growth opportunities available in the marketplace.”
Business Sale Guides
Our guides provide deep insight and practical advice across a variety of essential valuation and business sale topics. Each one has been carefully written and crafted to assist your understanding of M&A. Throughout each guide, we provide detailed information and concise answers to the leading questions asked by business owners and shareholders looking to sell their business.
In our Valuation Methods and Multiple Arbitrage guide we look at how you define value. Being able to maximise business value is something that is becoming more and more important in today’s shifting economic landscape.
Is buying cheap a sure way to create value and what should you look for over and above business financials? Moving further on, are forecasts more important than the past and what are the key valuation risks that you should be aware of?
In this Exit Strategies by Design guide we examine the main types of exit, the types of buyers, and bring to the fore some of the timing considerations around an exit strategy to assist shareholders.
Planning exits positively is essential to ensure sustainability, succession and a successful transition. Understanding and aiming at a clear route to exit can also be more effective than hoping one of the methods will work or waking up one day with the thought ‘we’ve had enough’.
