SERVICES FOR OWNERS

 
As an owner, you are looking to sell your company
or to find a successor for your business:

Your energy and expertise has made your company what it is today. Your life’s work is done.

You are now planning your future, and want to sell your company and reap the rewards of your hard work.

Company sales in the IT sector or the search for a successor for an IT business are both elements which can be well thought through and determined via intensive consulting.

As an entrepreneur, you are used to calling on expert assistance before making your decision.

Now is the time to do so again, because there are lots of questions that will need expert answers in the near future:
  • How could the succession / the search for a successor work?
  • Is there an internal solution for company succession or should I find the right partner from outside?
  • What is my company worth – and how do I achieve a reasonable price?
  • How can the sales/succession process be kept discreet?
  • What needs to be taken into account for an IT company sale?
The M&A loop is match.IT’s very own procedural model for company owners. The M&A loop ensures successful company sales and succession planning in the IT sector, across all three of the key phases for succession:
  • Strategy and search phase
  • Negotiation phase
  • Integration phase

Match.IT is your experienced partner for company succession, consulting on the search for investors, and company sales.
