The importance of confidentiality when finding a buyer for your business
Back to other articles →
KBS Corporate offers a highly creative and proactive approach in order to identify prospective acquirers from across the globe. We provide a tailored sale strategy to realise a complete exit solution or a partial sale to release capital, ensuring that several competitive offers are presented to you from an extensive UK and international range of target buyer routes.
This unique approach can be discussed in an initial consultation where we aim to understand each of our client’s individual circumstances, desires and objectives in order to determine a suitable strategy. Our comprehensive buyer reach ensures that we will target every possible buyer route to maximise interest, whilst always recognising every client’s need for discretion and confidentiality throughout the process.
Confidentiality is undoubtedly a key consideration and is very much a cornerstone of our service. When entering this process some of our clients can be concerned about their employees, customers, and competitors potentially finding out that their company is for sale. Our processes are designed and proven to prevent such problems occurring. Every one of our employees are fully trained in all aspects of the required confidentiality procedures and discretion is assured from the moment we first speak, to the day your transaction completes.
All interested parties are required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) before they view any confidential information. We ensure that you remain firmly in control of who has access to your company’s sensitive commercial information. Once the NDA has been signed and the relevant information on the prospective buyer collated, we can agree to seek your authority before sending them any confidential information. We understand that selling your business can be a huge decision, which is why we ensure you are kept in control of the whole process. It can be a highly sensitive topic. There is no reason anyone needs to know about your company sale, unless you want them to.
On instruction, you will be assigned a number of professionals who will work alongside you to generate results and interest in your business, ranging from document writers and negotiators to marketing professionals and researchers.
Through the process, we also offer our clients and buyers the ability to use our ‘Virtual Data Rooms’, secure access portals designed to confidentially store sensitive commercial information, which then allows potential acquirers to remotely access the relevant resources necessary to successfully complete the due diligence process in a safe and timely manner.
You can contact us anytime to arrange a visit to our office, and on instruction you can meet with your deal team at your convenience, meaning you are always in control and kept informed about your company sale.
