The Rebbettes family know how it feels to sell a business. When Brian, Dave and Steve Rebbettes decided to sell their family business via a broker in the 1980s, they were extremely disappointed with the service – and decided to take matters into their own hands. The founded BCMS as a direct result of that experience, establishing a pioneering M&A advisory built around a far-reaching approach to company sales. In Dave’s words: “Selling a company is far more about sales and marketing than it is about financial numbers.”
In this in-car interview, filmed in a Tesla Model S all-electric vehicle, Dave offers tried-and-tested business sale advice, discusses traditional business valuation methods, and explains why a desktop valuation can never tell you how much your business is really worth.
