How long could the process take?
Once you have taken the decision to engage Starling Corporate, our absolute priority is to completely understand your business, your objectives, and the overall goal for the project ahead. Unlike other advisors who will complete a simple fact find questionnaire; we offer director managed collaboration to completely understand every element that is relevant to the individual scenario.
This allows us to be in the strongest position when speaking to buyers. The advantage to you is a clearer service that rewards an optimum value with ultimate clarity throughout.
Once there is complete understanding between all parties, we will produce relevant bespoke documentation that presents the key aspects of your business and its opportunity to buyers.
Our qualified copywriters and designers will produce a comprehensive Business Prospectus/Information Memorandum (IM), that follows a confidential Opportunity Summary. It is entirely our client’s decision as to who receives the information at what stage of the process, where we guarantee confidentiality throughout.
We aim to provide an innovate service that shortlists and identifies a broad range of buyer candidates that suit the individual business opportunity. This involves proven marketing techniques, relevant investment, subscription to business platforms and the appropriate use of ‘Big Data’. Our process of approaching and handling a range of buyers from numerous categories is unique in the market and managed by you as a client, offering full visibility at all junctures.
Starling Corporate receives regular feedback from buy-side advisors, legal professionals, and buyers that our research and approach strategy is the best in its class.
We appreciate that owning and running a business requires the utmost commitment, that is why our team will handle and manage the entire workload of the project whilst efficiently keeping you involved.
Starling Corporate will project manage the sale of the business throughout all key junctures where you will get to know the individuals you work with. We understand the Due Diligence process and have the required knowledge and experience to ensure that this is handled in the best possible way.
