Choosing to sell your Company needs good planning and positioning. You may need to prepare your Company for sale by looking at its composition, re-arranging debt and restructuring any group infrastructures. By implementing complex financial methods, we can make your company more attractive to investors and potential buyers. For more information, see Prepare us for Private Sale.
ICS have experience in restructuring companies and their debt, preparing companies for sale, and indeed purchasing companies.
We have an energetic appetite for acquiring small to medium sized private enterprises in many different industry sectors. Calling on our experience and knowledge enables us to design intricate financial models allowing us to acquire companies in all kinds of financial condition; whether highly profitable, asset rich – cash poor, or distressed.
If you feel you wish to sell-out to a competent buyer who will offer you the best remuneration or phase-out purchase plan and carry your company forward, ICS is your solution.
In buying-out companies we are keen to work with the owners to create the best possible deal for both seller and buyer. We can structure phase-out purchases where the owner sells parts of his company over a period of time with the aim to sell all of the company at the end of the period. Alternatively, the seller may decide to sell the company to a dynamic and professional buyer who may boost the company forward whilst retaining a shareholding or honorary directorship within the company and gain further rewards down-track.
Furthermore, we can arrange Swiss financial residency for your sale proceeds and offer revised structure to existing shareholders planning to sell their shares to gain benefits by lowering tax on sale proceeds.
Structuring the correct purchase plan is paramount for the continued success of the business with its new owners and of course equally important to the seller to ensure that maximum gain can be made from its sale.
Whether the sale is structured as a merger, management buy-out or a straight forward acquisition, we are able to help plan the entire sale hand-over to enable a smooth transition and ensure the seller’s financial gain is protected and the health of business lives on and grows under its new ownership.
Many acquisitions that we undertake are done with a view to taking the business public inside a 5 year window. This appeals to many private company shareholders who are wishing to sell their businesses to a more energetic board that will continue to grow the business whilst retaining a small shareholding or debenture within the company, reaping a larger reward at IPO.
