Working as a Business Broker for over 13 years Michael has brought to market a wide range of businesses throughout New Zealand with particular experience around wholesaling, import and distribution, manufacturing, logistics, and civil works.
It is this experience together with an extensive business network and market knowledge that he believes will provide Vendors with the confidence and ‘peace of mind’ required to achieve the desired satisfactory result so they can move onto the next chapter in their lives.
“Having an effective and experienced broker handle the sale of your business in a professional and confidential manner is an absolute necessity in today’s business environment. The commercial environment is also more competitive than ever, and sensitive commercial information or intellectual property must be carefully protected via ‘high level confidentiality agreements’. Do It Once and Do it Right.
Paramount in achieving a successful sale in a timely and confidential manner are the following:
Price it right: Too high and serious buyers won’t even consider your business seriously.
Present it right: A business that looks smart always achieves a superior price.
Prepare for the Sale: Accounts must be well presented and up to date. Lease agreements should be available for inspection.
Total honesty: Due Diligence always shows up irregularities. Put all your cards on the table at the outset allows a smoother progression to a successful sale.
Before working as a Business Broker Michael had various roles within the Banking and Finance sector having worked for the National Bank of New Zealand, Challenger Financial services (Aus) and Active International (USA). He has a Bachelor Of Business Studies (Massey University) and is a qualified as an ‘Agent’ under the REA 2008.
