Green Square provides consultancy advice to the shareholders and managers of independent businesses who are looking for assistance with preparing the business for sale, in either the short or medium term. Our service offering, which can be tailored according to specific requirements, includes the following:
Our commercial review is an objective assessment of the business from an acquirer's viewpoint. Applying our extensive experience of how they assess businesses, we identify areas for improvement and help the management team develop an action plan to address these.
Based on prior client feedback, an external perspective can be invaluable in directing attention onto the key issues that concern acquirers, away from the everyday concerns that absorb the team. It can also help ensure that all the team are pulling in the same direction.
There are a range of scenarios where an existing shareholder may need to be exited from a business. Perhaps they simply wish to leave to pursue other opportunities, or maybe the individual's contribution to the business has diminished.
We can provide impartial advice on an exit, oversee the process, undertake the sensitive negotiations and balance the different expectations of the parties involved.
