If you were considering selling your business before the Covid-19 crisis then you are probably wondering what happens now.

Even if selling was not on your radar, the long-lasting and devastating economic implications might be forcing you to ask searching questions such as “how do I ever recover from this?”.

Selling your business not only releases the capital tied up in your business but also relieves you of what could be increasingly stressful decisions and possibly personal financial commitments.

Shilling have competent and funding-backed buyers ready to go. We have over 10 years’ experience managing acquisitions to completion for our clients and in successfully buying and running businesses from various sectors within our own Shilling Trading division.

We are swift, pragmatic and focussed entirely around bringing deals to a successful completion. We are not agents looking to try to market your business nor extract fees from you. All fees are paid by our client, the buyer, and we don’t charge anything to you, the seller.

Our Approach

We know the market and we know what drives valuations. Deals only complete when their quantum and structure are both deliverable and sustainable. There is no point trying to pursue a transaction that doesn’t fit these metrics because it will fail. Trust us, we know.

Therefore, the very first thing we need to do is test the numbers; if they don’t work then nothing else does. This means we analyse your business and make an offer to ensure we can meet expectations within real-world funding parameters. We only make offers we can deliver based on the information available to us.
