"We wish to extend our sincere thanks to Acquire for the energy and investment that you put into selling our Business. You and your team made yourselves available to us throughout the process, keeping us well informed and communicating efficiently. This contact and reassurance helped to ensure that a potentially stressful process was managed in a calm and logical way. Thank you for helping us to realise our wishes in the sale of our Business."
"As Shareholders we felt we received a very professional and specific service from the Acquire team; which was important to us given the nature of the Business and the need to manage the process in a confidential and service focussed way."
"We decided after 45 years in the cleaning industry that it was time to sell our business . We looked at various company sale agents / brokers to help us with the process, but decided to use Acquire, who Sold businesses across the UK. The sale began in Mid February 2020, within three weeks Acquire had presented three companies interested in acquiring our Business. The three companies that we met were all very keen to buy, however we chose to proceed with the purchaser because they were very equipped to easily run our company. Everything was going great guns, however COVID appeared in March / April. Although this slowed the process down, we were able to get a lot of the paperwork done. I must say that Acquire diligently covered and contacted us in every step we took. We are delighted to have now sold our company with Acquire. I would highly recommend the Acquire team as their knowledge of buyers, contacts and the sale procedure was second to none."
"The team at Acquire go above and beyond when it comes to managing the Company Sale process. Unlike many other brokers, who simply introduce buyers and sellers then collect their fee at the end, Acquire help walk both buyer and seller through the process. This includes help with disputes, monitoring progress and deadlines and general experience that ensures deals complete as quickly and as smoothly as possible. Often business purchases can be delayed and made extremely complex for a magnitude of reasons. Having an experience broker by your side can mean the difference between success and failure. I would highly recommend working with Acquire Business Sales."
"Once we had made the difficult decision to sell our business, due to ill health and retirement, we did not look back. Acquire guided us through the process step by step. During the past 18 months we were approached by several companies touting for our business. We are extremely glad that we chose Acquire Business Sales Ltd. Bill and I would take great pleasure in recommending the Acquire team to other companies, be it large or small, who are looking to sell."
"Thanks to the team at Acquire for their assistance and 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude whilst working on the sale of our Company, especially Scott and Anthony whose dedication is much appreciated. I thoroughly recommend the services they have provided."
"ACQUIRE BUSINESS SALES dealt with the Sale of our Company. We found them attentive and professional during the process which came to a satisfactory conclusion . We would highly recommend them for any future Business Sales. Thank you for the good work carried out."
"From the start, Acquire quickly got to grips with the scale of our business and more importantly our objectives for the sale. You also made very clear proposals on how to identify and approach prospective buyers, which as first (and only) time business sellers, we found extremely reassuring. We liked the fact that you specialise in finding buyers for companies of our size and offered the necessary experience and skills to not only identify, but negotiate with acquirers much larger in size than ourselves. Given our sector, your measures to safeguard our Business from the potential hazards of selling proved extremely valuable."
“I’ve worked with Acquire on a number of deals and they are always a pleasure to deal with: approachable and always available. I was impressed by the quality and professionalism of their service throughout this matter, not just in finding a “best fit” buyer, but in managing their clients’ expectations of the selling process and keeping the momentum of the deal going right through to completion.”
"Confidentially selling a c.£5m to £10m Speciality Chemicals Manufacturer is no easy task, but working with Acquire simplified the process considerably and added immeasurable value to the overall deal. Considering our sector, it is also remarkable that you kept the sale confidential right up to closing. I believe that in completing this deal to AFCO you have more than delivered on your initial proposal to sell my Company. You sourced me an International acquirer with a global expansion plan, which can only be good news for the future of this 130-year old Business and its loyal employees."
"As a manufacturing business approaching £3m turnover we found that Acquire Business Sales were an ideal fit to manage the confidential marketing of our Business. From an initial meeting with their Managing Director, it took only a few weeks to have the Company installed on their portfolio of businesses for sale. I have no hesitation in recommending Acquire to other owners who are looking for a reliable Broker to achieve a 'best-fit' sale of their business."
“I have been very impressed with Acquire Business Sales and in particular their Managing Director Anthony Mitchell who was instrumental in bringing one of our larger deals last autumn to a successful conclusion. Acquire were “on the ball” when it came to personalities and strategy and this really assisted the Seller’s side throughout. Always contactable and ready to give their thoughts on how the Buyer would react to our proposals, Acquire gave us a good insight into the commercial angle, and the Buyer’s mind-set, which ultimately ensured negotiations went smoothly."
"I would like to put on record my thanks to the team at Acquire for the high levels of service and professionalism provided at all times during the selling process. I am happy to recommend Acquire at every opportunity and have no hesitation in putting Acquire forward as an expert in the field of Specialist Company Sales."
“When working with Anthony and his team, I have found them sensible, commercial and realistic in what can and cannot be achieved. Buying and selling a business is an emotional experience, and clients need a cool head and a steady pair of hands. Acquire has both attributes, and it is a pleasure to work with them.”
"From the outset we felt confident in Acquire’s ability to professionally represent us in identifying and introducing suitable purchasers for our Business. We also felt that your targeted marketing efforts and service orientated approach enabled us to confidentially explore our market effectively, which resulted in a steady flow of qualified interest from the UK and overseas."
"Having now successfully Sold the Business to Dawson Bowman Ltd we can confirm that Acquire met and indeed exceeded our expectations in terms of service. We especially enjoyed working with both Anthony and Scott who worked to a very high standard and whom we found to be extremely supportive and personable."
