Why use an adviser?
An adviser has the professional experience to deal with complexities and legalities related to the sale of a business. With a qualified adviser you will be expertly guided through all the processes from preparing documents to ensuring the smooth completion of a sale.
A good adviser will market your business to buyers that you may have never considered. The networks of an adviser will be far reaching across sectors and international markets, this range of buyers enables you to find the best deal for your business.
We are independent experts in the sale of UK SMEs to plcs and multinational groups. These buyers often pay more than a trade buyer and are professionals experienced in the process of acquiring companies. Having a close relationship with these acquirers ensures we can get your company in front of the right potential buyers for your business.
Focused on your business
Alaris specialises in advising on UK SME transactions and we believe we understand the needs of businesses of this size. Each business differs so our service is tailored to each client’s specific requirements and entirely focused on making the deal happen.
Senior experienced advisers
Alaris is comprised of a group of senior advisers who have extensive experience in the UK smaller company M&A market. An experienced adviser will manage the sale of your business and will be your day-to-day contact, working with you throughout the process.
Negotiation Only Service
Our “Negotiation Only” service is for companies who have already been approached by a buyer or who are considering an MBO. We will be able to guide you through the sale process to ensure that, in the absence of other interested parties, you achieve a sale price and transaction terms in line with market rates.
Identifying and accessing purchasers
We have an extensive database of buyers, containing in-depth information on acquisitive companies, financial purchasers, professional advisers and other intermediaries. Many of these contacts are associates that we are in regular contact with.
As our focus is on company sales, buyers are keen to talk to us as we act for quality businesses. Our in-house research department allows us to identify less than obvious potential buyers enhancing sale opportunities.
Opportunities and competition between interested parties are increased by considering an international sale. Alaris has an extensive network of M&A professionals internationally, who can assist in sourcing purchasers for a client’s business.
Part of our international reach is as a result of our close business and working relationship with Cavendish Corporate Finance, which allows us access to contacts within Oaklins, an international network that includes over 600 professionals in 45 M&A advisory and investment banking firms operating in 42 countries.
