Why use an intermediary such as Prism Consult to sell your business? Come to that, why use an intermediary service at all? The short answer is because whichever side of the deal you’re on, a competent business broker will always make, or save, you money. Mergers and acquisitions are what we ‘do’. Most owners only buy or sell a business once. We sell them all the time. When trying to prepare their own business for sale, many owners struggle to see the wood from the trees. We stay objective, and know how to structure a negotiation to gain maximum benefit for the seller, and how to identify maximum opportunity for the buyer.

“We would like to thank you for successfully brokering the sale of The Christmas Magazine. We could not have asked for a better result, having achieved our guide price and target completion date.

We were extremely impressed with the whole sale process, from start to finish, including the extensive preparation work you did which undoubtedly provided the foundation for the success, along with the crucial negotiations you handled along the way. We hope that the opportunity arises to work with you again at some point in the future.” Danny Morris, Signature Publishing
