Sales, mergers & acquisitions

Brokering the best deal

There may come a time if your company’s lifecycle when you’re looking to expand, build a stronger foundation, take a step back, or sell up entirely. At that point, you might start thinking about merging with another company, purchasing it outright, or selling your company.

Whichever position you’re in, it can be tricky to broker the best deal: and you want to make sure you’ve got all the facts and market knowledge before entering into any sale, merger or acquisition.

That’s where robust and transparent financial advice comes in. At Cottons, we’re on hand to guide you through the process.

Whether you’re merging, buying or selling, proper due diligence and planning are critical to your ongoing success.

If you’re on the hunt for growth, our team can help you find a suitable company to merge with oracquire, carry out all of the necessary due diligence and make sure you’re not entering into a situation where you’ll be working on an instant corporate recovery.

We’ll also make sure the transitional period is well planned out and runs smoothly, not just for you but for the team you’re bringing into the fold.

If, on the other hand, you’re looking to exit your company and sell, we can support you with that, too.

From carrying out external audits to making sure all your information is up to date, we’ll help set you up to get the best valuation – so that when you finally make the deal, you’re getting a fair price for all your years of hard work.
