Selling your business? Dedicated advisors along the process


Selling your business does not happen overnight. VDP has the expertise and insight at every stage of the M&A process to guarantee an optimal preparation. We have built a strong network of buyers and a proactive approach helping you to achieve the best possible transaction and desired outcome, while you can continue to focus on your business.

We help you to prepare the sales process by writing an attractive investment memorandum, developing a substantiated equity story and determining the transaction conditions. We can manage the process end-to-end taking care of all associated formalities up to closing.

Selling your business: this is how it works

No two transactions are ever identical. Nevertheless, we can distinguish a number of indicative phases.

  • A first step is an in-depth financial and strategic analysis of the company to prepare the company for a sale. Together we identify the points of attention and risks we subsequently proactively counter. We bring expertise, experience and insight to develop a detailed equity story based on market analysis and broad sector experience.
  • A detailed investment memorandum offers potential investors a complete insight into your company, financials and commercial strengths and weaknesses. Subsequently, we discreetly market your business by means of a blind profile. Together, we draw up a list of potential buyers or investors. VDP completes the short list based on thorough sector analysis and its (international) network.
  • During the process we carefully map all risks: financial and tax issues, legal issues, technological developments, interaction with key staff members, suppliers or customers. We will guide you through the entire process. If necessary, we can manage the whole due diligence process.
  • VDP also can also provide legal assistance and assures an integrated 360° approach. Share purchase agreements, management contracts or lease agreements are all part of our expertise.
