Jamieson also offers other important services consisting of business valuations and advice on preparing your business for sale to maximize its value.
Generally business agencies or accounting firms are unable to offer the scope and depth of practical business experience which Jamieson brings to advising the proprietors of SME businesses.
The practical experience of Jamieson executives enables them to demonstrate to purchasers how they can achieve a good fit and profit from a business acquisition. This skill arises from Jamieson executives’ marketing, financial and technical background and highly practical experience as industrial managers, directors and shareholders of medium-sized manufacturing and trading companies.
The first step in exploring a possible business sale with Jamieson is for one of the principals to listen to your objectives. Jamieson then reviews your operations and financial records, assesses future prospects and risks factors and estimates the market value of the business.
Jamieson always provides meaningful business valuation appraisals as an initial step in the process before owners decide whether to sell a business. Buyers also like us to advise on fair market values before committing to an acquisition under consideration. Preliminary business appraisals are generally offered without charge.
Your business is presented in a concise information document prepared to present the business, its financial performance and value. Feedback from business buyers and sellers confirms the high standard of information presentation achieved in our assignments.
Potential purchasers are identified and interest is generated through a variety of means tailored to your business. These include research and direct approaches, newsletters to registered buyers and accounting firms and carefully presented press advertising.
Jamieson is selective in the number and quality of the projects it takes on allowing for the concentration of high-level professional skills on each project so that successful business sales are achieved in an agreed time frame. Jamieson consults with its client throughout the business sale or acquisition process to ensure continuous communication of the status of each project.
Security is fundamental to the Jamieson process to maintain confidentiality of the business being advertised or privately offered.
Jamieson is run by a professional team of experienced business brokers. Our principals are licensed as business agents by the NSW Office of Fair Trading. Jamieson is also a member of the Australian Institute of Business Brokers (AIBB) and the Real Estate Institute of NSW (REINSW).
