Your questions answered

How much can you sell a business in Echuca for?

Our Nash 360 Valuation Report provides a realistic assessment of your business value. Using a multiples approach, we consider your revenue and comparable companies within your chosen industry. In addition, we engage with trusted buyers and investors to obtain a current, up-to-date perspective on terms and pricing early in the process. We will also suggest ways to improve your business value before you sell. As a rule, we offer this feedback within one to three months.

Is my data safe when talking to a competitor?

Yes. Every potential buyer must first sign a confidentiality agreement before receiving any data. We generally divide this data into three batches, with the final batch including your key customers, pricing and employees. If your potential buyer is a direct competitor, we withhold all sensitive information until the end of the transaction.

What is involved in due diligence?

Our team will help you assess potential buyers to ensure they can meet your requirements. We’ll evaluate their relationship to the industry, their success, their ability to afford your sales price, and even consider their willingness to continue serving your clientele. 

Potential buyers will also need to conduct due diligence on your business. They’ll need to consider your financials, customer contracts and management team. Consequently, you’ll need to provide certain transaction documents

Our comprehensive due diligence process dictates the timeframe, which is generally one to four months. We will support you and ensure everything runs smoothly and efficiently.

How long will it take to sell my business in Echuca?

Companies that rush their business sale (i.e., within three months) tend to achieve lower outcomes. The process takes six to twelve months with our expert corporate advisors. From the outset, we set clear expectations and develop a robust business sale strategy to yield the best outcomes for you as the vendor.

Who is likely to buy an Echuca-based business?

The buyer pool for selling a business in Echuca could be broad or specific. It will depend on the scale of your business, the management team and the industry you’re in. Potential buyers range from private investors, large trade buyers or private equity firms. Every group of buyers acquires businesses differently, so we consider this in our sales strategy and proceedings.
