Types of Sale

Selling a business can be a difficult decision to make, especially if it is one that an entrepreneur has developed from the ground up, as there will be emotional ties. However, deciding on the right manner in which to make the sale can provide peace of mind about the business' future.


There are several different methods for selling a business, each with advantages and other factors to consider:

Types of Sale

Trade / Share Sale

This type of sale normally entails the disposal of a business' shares or assets and even liabilities, in whole or in part. A buyer can acquire the business through a share sale or an asset sale.

Types of Sale

Management Buy Out / In

An MBO is when the current management team of a business collaborates to buy either a total or a majority stake in the business, thus buying out the current owner and taking control.

Types of Sale

Employee Ownership

An EOT is a vehicle that can be used by the current owner(s) of the company to plan a partial exit and a future full exit at a later stage, creating a tax-advantageous succession plan.
