Frequently asked questions

How long would I need to stay with business after a sale?

To a degree the timing is driven by you the seller.  We will require a handover period, commonly this is somewhere between 3 and 9 months.   However this is dependent on a multitude of factors which we will discuss very early in the process.

Our business is in a distressed state and we are running out of cash, can you help?

In these difficult times, it’s not unusual to see even the most robust businesses suffering.   We are experienced in providing cashflow support and bridging the gap whilst we formalise an investment or acquisition.

I only wish to sell a percentage of my business to fund the expansion and growth of the business. Would Positus buy less than 100%?

We often leave a % for management or current owners in the structure of the investment. It may be that your retirement plans are not for a further 10 years, but you need an investment partner to help expand and develop the business.  We are creative in our approach to deal structure and we look to incentivise performance whenever it is in the best interests of the business.

I have little experience in selling businesses, what is my first step?

Call us or drop an email and we will arrange a time to speak.  It all starts with a conversation.  We are a team of experienced business people who have experienced the pressures of running a business.
