How does a company sale work?

Selling a company is a complex process which offers many opportunities, but also carries risks. The typical process can be roughly divided into the following phases:


Selling a company is a complex transaction which depends on the size and type of company as well as how it is organized internally. 

It is therefore advisable to start the sales process as soon as possible and to prepare the company for the transaction (fit-to-sell measures):

  • Define a sales strategy
  • Have the company evaluated
  • Determine the price range for sales negotiations
  • Get expert advice

Contact potential buyers

Do you already have a potential buyer for your company? If not, the next step would be to get in contact with interested parties.

Finding a suitable buyer is often one of the most difficult challenges of the sales process. If needed, we can support you in finding the ideal buyer thanks to our extensive network – in Switzerland and worldwide. 

Due Diligence

As a rule, due diligence is time-consuming and involves the potential buyer evaluating the company.

The goal is for the buyer to be able to form a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses of their potential purchase. This step forms the basis for the sale negotiations.  

Negotiation and completition phase

For the sale to be complete, the contract still needs to be signed and all necessary approval procedures need to be initiated.

As soon as all required documents have been signed and all necessary approvals have been acquired, we’ll be ready to finalize the sale.
