Sale of Business
At McAvoy & Associates we understand that the sale of your business is a time-consuming and emotional process. Many owners will only have one opportunity to sell their business so good planning and careful timing is essential if an optimal sale is to be achieved.
Our experienced business advisory team will help guide clients through the sales process, always with one eye on how to maximise the value of the business.
Management Buy-Outs (MBOs)
At McAvoy & Associates we understand that a management buy-out (MBO) can be a great opportunity for an existing management team to either own a stake in their business or own it outright. However, while a MBO can lead to financial success, it is not a venture for the faint-hearted. It takes courage to leave the security of employment as a manager and face the challenges that business ownership will bring.
Mergers and Acquisitions
At McAvoy & Associates we understand that for companies to achieve growth and expansion they may have to consider a merger or an acquisition.
Our Business Advisory team has a particular specialism in mergers and acquisitions for both small to medium-sized organisations and can advise clients through all stages of each of these processes.
Whether a business needs to raise finance to fund a start-up, increase working capital, purchase essential plant and equipment, or grow the business through acquisition, access to adequate funding is essential.
