We talk to Deborah about why she decided to use an advisor, and why she chose BCMS.

I think we knew that accessing the market for sale was going to be very difficult on our own. I would never suggest to anybody that they do it on their own. Number one, you can’t go to market confidentially. Selling a business takes specialist skills, in terms of the actual negotiation, the structure of the negotiation, and understanding what to expect in terms of a share purchase agreement.

BCMS was very good at keeping us informed of what was going on and keeping in contact all of the time. So, we didn’t ever feel like there were times where we were just left hanging, without a clue what was going on, or what was going to come up. I did enjoy the sale process. I very much like a project with a start and an end, and I quite like to win. Selling in the way that we did, to the right company and for the right amount, felt like winning.
