Business Owners: How Will You Broker Your Exit?

Business Owners: How Will You Broker Your Exit?

Selling a business can be as hard as building a business. For smaller businesses it becomes a question of finding the right kind of help. Often, standard business broker services are more geared towards larger firms, with costs to match. Larger company owners have their own problems and issues, particularly when it comes preparing for sale.  At the same time they must keep on top of the day to day running of the business.

The market for selling businesses is changing.  This is why the professional expertise of business brokers is so valuable when business owners want to sell. So long as they can find the right broker service to suit their needs.

Paul Dodgshon and Alexandra Dodgshon are the directors and business brokers running the Cheshire-based firm Uscita Solutions.  They they recognise the issues businesses both large and small face.

“The word ‘uscita’ is Italian for exit,” Paul explains.  “It has many other meanings along the same theme and that is perfect for our business.”

Uscita has designed distinct packages that will serve the specific needs of different business owners, whether heading big companies or owners of smaller concerns. These are Usell and Ubuild.

“Usell is our DIY solution for the commercial market, aimed at smaller businesses,” says Alexandra. “Crucially it is low-cost with transparent pricing and we guide and support the process in the background.”

“The Ubuild service is aimed at owners of larger businesses. It is a coaching programme, designed to help owners prepare their businesses before they sell,” Alexandra continues.

This recognises how crucial it is that owners can fully immerse themselves in the detail of the sale in order to ensure they are getting the right deal, and that their business is in a state of readiness for the transfer of ownership.

The Dodgshons have ten years’ solid experience with their franchised business broker network, Business Partnership. Uscita marks a re-launch of their company with a broader approach to providing services, including those of Business Partnership.

As Paul explains, “As Uscita, we are in a much stronger position to help owners move their businesses on, wherever they are in that process or journey.”
