Sales Memorandum

By identifying the benefits and features of your business you will influence purchasers at an early stage. An overview of the business, staff, market place, assets, financial position and future potential should all be included in this vital document.


Identifying and Approaching Buyers

Our live database and research facilities will help you conduct research into potential purchasers, including competition, suppliers or related businesses seeking expansion or synergy.

Negotiation and Agreement

Our professional advisors can lead discussions and assist with advice to ensure that you get the best terms possible when selling your business. Securing terms through written confirmation ensures clarity and maintains confidentiality.


Due Diligence

Once initial sale terms are agreed, a purchaser will check the strength of their proposed purchase by reviewing all commercial aspects. Sale terms may need reviewing and some matters may be too commercially sensitive to risk disclosure at this point. Axis is on hand to ensure that all legal and financial aspects will be appropriately considered.
