What happens in the process of making a deal?
Firstly, let’s be clear: if you approach us we’ll treat your enquiry with the strictest confidence. Alternatively, we might approach you, and at this early stage we’ll have a discussion to be sure we’re a good fit for each other.
If your company doesn’t quite fit with what we’re looking for that’s ok, and we’ll quickly let you know that, so you can move on in your journey to find a buyer.
If early conversations show we’re a good fit we’ll move ahead, assessing your business across a range of factors, i.e.
- financial situation
- management team
- risk assessment
- pipeline of work
We’d then be at the stage of agreeing a deal that’s both competitive and realistic in terms of the current market conditions. After that it’s onto the legal part of the process, which can take some time to work through on both sides.
When the deal is right, you can be sure that we’ll act quickly and decisively to bring your business into the United Capital family.
