What is a business acquisition transaction?

An acquisition involves purchasing a business by acquiring the majority shareholding, thereby owning the controlling stake. There are several motivations to do so, such as growing your market share, expanding into a new vertical, gaining new technology or removing a competitor.

You can discover the various reasons a business might look to acquire another and read about truly successful acquisition transactions in our 'Behind the Deal' article here.

By doing so, you fuel growth for your business, and having a robust acquisition strategy can therefore propel you towards your business goals.

Is employee ownership right for you?

An acquisition is not the only way of fuelling growth for your business.

In an Employee Ownership Trust, staff acquire a majority stake of the company via a Trust, creating a tax-efficient strategy for existing owners while rewarding their workforce.

The incentive of future equity can motivate staff; promoting a stronger company culture and business growth.

Have you got a plan for succession?

A management buyout could be the right exit strategy for you and your team.

By collaborating to buy out the current owner, a senior management team can ensure continuity for clients and staff alike, as well as helping fuel growth through their insider knowledge of a business.

With buyers already present, the transaction can be more efficient, allowing confidential information to remain within the business.
