Vendor assist

A vendor assist process provides you with the confidence that your business is ready for due diligence, speeds up this process once you are in a transaction, and reduces the risk of issues being highlighted further down the line. This enables you to increase the control and competitiveness of the transaction.

"Selling your business or attracting investment can be very time consuming. Preparation is key, and we will work with you to make this process more efficient and to help reduce the strain on your internal resources, allowing you to focus on the activities which add value to your business."

Our vendor assist services can help you to:

  • Validate the valuation of your business.
  • Identify the strengths and opportunities of your business as areas of focus.
  • Proactively address any potential challenges which may arise in a formal diligence process and suggest potential rectifications or mitigations where relevant.
  • Corroborate the facts, figures and information to be provided in the information memorandum before it is circulated to potential purchasers.
  • Highlight any weaknesses or resource constraints in the finance function.
  • Identify any potential risks to a successful transaction.

"The team at Knight had undertaken a Vendor assist project with the business earlier this year so it was fully prepared for a process even though one was not planned. Once a deal had been agreed with Enreach the process completed quickly. The Knight team ensured that we got the right deal for everyone at Network Telecom and the transaction was completed efficiently with minimum of disruption to the business."

Paul Maxfield, Founder of Network Telecom UK Limited following its sale to Enreach UK Limited.

At Knight Transaction Services we understand that there is no one size fits all approach. We will work with you to determine a scope which ensures that you don’t spend money on services that can be performed in-house or by other advisers and enables the vendor assist report to be useful to a range of potential buyers.

Our team are all fully qualified Transaction Services specialists with experience of working with a range of business types, sectors and sizes.

Our bespoke solutions can be prepared on a non-branded basis as a Management document or using our Knight branding.
