Our full acquisition management service offers specialist project management for your end-to-end journey of purchasing another estate agency business. We’ll support you throughout the negotiations, due diligence, legal process and financial stages to ensure your investment is fully capitalised and completion is successfully achieved.
We will lead the relationship between both you and the seller, supporting commercial negotiations and agreeing HoT’s (Heads of terms) working alongside both solicitors.
It’s crucial we keep the seller happy, engaged and up to date to ensure a smooth transition and therefore we will support the seller throughout, including through the legal and due diligence process.
We will work closely with both parties to identify, manage and mitigate key risks, ensuring we’re working to resolve any issues throughout the process and before completion.
We will manage the Legal Purchase Agreement, ensuring you and your business has the right amount of protection, whilst the deal remains commercial. We will also guide you through all commercial contracts and termination fees so you fully understand cost and can negotiate leases, and insurances.
We will review due diligence and make recommendations on post synergy EBITDA and where savings and uplifts can be made.
Alongside you and your operational teams, we will work with you to understand cultures and people plans and processes (existing and incoming), ensuring structure and roles and responsibilities are clearly defined from day one.
We will prepare a full integration plan, including a 100-day project plan and all the supporting documents you will need to make the integration as seamless as possible. We will also provide guidance on the first few week’s completion activities, so everyone is clear on roles, responsibilities and tasks in those early days. .
Our post-completion support service is available to help you tie up the many loose ends associated with purchasing a business and integrating it into your existing structure. We’ll help with the data migration, TUPE processes, post-completion communications across all stakeholders, as well as any contract renewals. In short, we’ll help dot the i’s and cross the t’s.
We will project manage the integration of the business for the first 2-weeks post completion. Giving you peace of mind that you have an experienced and reliable pair of hands to navigate any pitfalls in the early stages of integration, thus protecting your investment.
We will schedule and host daily calls with key stakeholders to ensure the project is on track and support the operations teams with TUPE consultations and team member integrations.
We will manage all areas identified as a risk in the due diligence process, managing and mitigating key risks, and working to resolve any issues that arise.
We will deal with all contract amends and cancellations, manage the closure of premises and fleet and support in the transfer of all bank accounts.
We will create a robust communication plan and support you to execute this, ensure all stakeholders including team, landlords, suppliers and contractors are informed and reassured.
We will support you to manage the data migration into your systems, setting up new processes and reporting where needed.
The seller will likely be on an “earn out” and thus we’ll create a retention schedule that can be calculated and reported back to the seller monthly, to ensure the integration is on track for all parties
