Good preparation for a business sale is important as it increases your chances for a positive outcome. We help you in preparing well for the sale of your internet business. We need to understand the reasons why you want to sell your company and if you want to stay involved or not. It might be possible that you are looking for a strong strategic partner to realize synergies. Alternatively you might want to do something completely different after the sale of your company. These situations could result in very different type of buyers that you require. It is likely that some buyers demand the owner to stay on and run the company for a minimum period of time (mostly one to two years). We help you in the full sales process and negotiate the best outcome for you.
The business sale of your online company is an important project. It is crucial that the online company can function well without you after you have sold the business. When you leave your business the structure of the company should be set-up in a way that it keeps on running well without you. The less risks exist the higher the perceived value for an online buyer. A online company is asset light so you normally receive mostly goodwill. This is especially the case when an online company is very successful.
Valuation is always a tricky part and we have seen high valuations occur when selling internet companies. It is important to know what current valuations are in the market. Further, you have to know what value potential buyers put on your company. Hence, one needs to understand the strategy of these buyers, their financials and the synergies they can realize when buying your company. This helps you to understand what the sales price is you can achieve for your company. We also help you to position yourself well and speak to the right European buyers that value your company best. This is what the European Online M&A team of CFIE can bring you.
