What is our recipe for success? It’s not only a work system based on years of experience in negotiations, sales and acquisitions of companies, but it’s also a team of practitioners who constantly seek investors and our extensive business contacts. Only in the last 5 years, we have mediated transactions worth several hundred milion euros, we have negotiated on behalf of dozen of entities,
we have met with hundreds of tenderers and investors. We ourselves have already sold our companies for the equivalent of several million euros. Now, we share our practice and contacts with our clients, acting by strictly standardized patterns. Throughtout the sales process, we take care of your company paying special attention to legal, negotiating, formal and administrative fields. This is how our system works:
Phase I: Preliminary evaluation
This is the simplest and shortest phase of the whole process. It usually lasts no longer than 10 days.First of all, we ask the entrepreneur who seeks investor, funding or potential buyer, to send data in the form of short description. It allows us to assess the industry and specificity of the company. This is also a moment when we assess the preliminary financial data. After this step, we assess the chances to sell the business. We respond to all e-mails, even if we do not see much potential in the project.
Phase 3: Due diligence
Pre-investment study of the company is the most important element of the whole process because terminal value depends on it. We conduct financial, legal, technological, business and tax analysis. Based on the results, we estimate the prognosis for the future of business, we calculate break even point rate which is a payback time, and we also perform a number of measurements which are necessary at testing stage of the company. Additionally, we check if the company operates according to international standards, and if its attractiveness is confirmed by an appropriate level of quality of the goods and services.
Phase 5: Company presentation, negotiations and preparation of transactions with potential investors
We assist in the preparation of documentation and presentation of the company. When organizing a meeting between investors and sellers, we pay special attention to the comfort of both sides. We care about proper relationships and what is more, we try to provide all the tools necessary for the transaction to go smoothly. As a company representative, we take care of its image. We negotiate the terms of sale and we also analyse the responses of investors. We mediate between the sides to make the communication clear throughout the process.
Phase 2: Interview and Signing a contract
During the meeting, we summarize our current activities and subsequently, we present the results of preliminary evaluation. What is more, we explain the procedure, we present the prognosis of the company, we demonstrate sales possibilities and we forecast future profits of potential investor. We answer all questions, and above all, we truly focus on the client. Our actions are honest and fair so the clients are able to fully realize the situation in which they are involved.
The final element of this phase is contract signing.
Phase 4: Search for potential investors
Thanks to our experience, know-how and extensive contacts, Millennium Bridge Investment has a portfolio of potential investors. Due to the nature of some industries, the portfolio is constantly expanding. Therefore, we gather information about investors and subsequently, we present them to sellers. We require a number of confidentiality obligations in order to send a company dossier to an investor. The final element of this phase is preparation of professional dossier.
Phase 6: Signing purchase agreement- finalization of the sale.
The final phase of the sale requires precision and attention due to the documentation and the contracts. The contracts require a detailed legal analysis. We prepare a letter of intent, we enable investors to carry out financial controls, we negotiate the content of notarial acts with lawyers of both sides, and we also supervise the preparation of notarial contracts. We believe that the success of the whole process is associated with signing the contracts by both sides. We also deal with post-trade arrangements, eg. a non-competition agreement.
