Our Approach - KBS

Our Approach

Our clients are at the forefront of our service, and everything we do is designed to ensure your expectations and objectives are met. Many of our directors and senior management have run their own businesses, and understand that it can be a very emotional and stressful time. Our approach will ensure that the time, money and energy you have already invested into your business is fully realised in a company sale, regardless of your circumstance.

Our hand-picked team of professionals work alongside a dynamic and experienced team of marketeers, researchers and negotiators, to ensure you receive the best possible service throughout the entirety of you company sale, and you can be assured that every member of our team will always operate with your best interests in mind.

1. understand

We will engage with your business on a personal level, to really gain an understanding of what makes your business different. Our team will take the time to get to know you and your objectives in detail, and then tailor the company sale process to meet your requirements.

  • Your long term objectives
  • Your preferred deal structures

2. present

We guarantee to present your company to market with the highest quality documents, marketing and research processes, to showcase your company in the best possible light. We treat every business as if it were our own, ensuring that we illustrate the key aspects of the opportunity, and capture the most powerful value drivers of your business.

Our professional team of qualified, in-house copywriters work with you to fully understand the commercial and financial aspects of your company, providing critical ‘outside of the box’ ideas to engage any potential acquirers.

“OUR DOCUMENTS ARE DESIGNED TO MAKE AN IMPACT, NOT JUST AN IMPRESSION”

The following presentational materials will be produced during the initial stages of the process, each one designed by a creative team specifically for you:

OPPORTUNITY SUMMARY

The Opportunity Summary, or ‘Teaser’ document, will form an essential part of the process, which will highlight the key information, without disclosing any specific identifiers.We understand that privacy and confidentiality can be a concern when embarking on a company sale, so our team are trained to ensure your data and confidentiality is always our main priority.

INFORMATION MEMORANDUM

An Information Memorandum (IM) will present full details and highlights of your business to the market. We pride ourselves on our creative and unique IMs, and we will work with you throughout the entire process to ensure the document is informative and powerfully portrays both the success and ethos of your company.

FINANCIAL FORECASTS

For a business showing significant growth potential, an objection or concern of the client could be that they may only receive an offer based on current profits and they then wish to stay on for a few years to grow the company. KBS Corporate will produce a detailed financial model or forecast to illustrate a strong argument to buyers that ‘earn outs’ based on future projections will represent a solid investment, whilst achieving maximum value for our client.
