For Sellers

We only work on a retained basis. We will fully research your business, and perform a full SWOT Analysis, as well as produce a buyers brochure, and if necessary, a full video production. We are looking for the key selling points which will motivate a buyer to move quickly through the process. Our job is to highlight and consult on where we believe the true value lies, and obviously a healthy ROI.

We conduct full due diligence and analysis of ROI before offering your business to our investors

We will then market your business to our pre-screened list of clients, who have already entered into NDA's (Non Disclosure Agreements) and provided us with POFs (Proof of Funds) and completed a due diligence process.

This ensures a legitimate range of buyers, who are engaged from the start. We are not interested in a passive or "pass by" casual sales process. We believe that your business should be presented to a fully engaged audience who have the funds and commitment to move quickly.

Typically we only accept businesses for sale with a 3 year plus track record, producing an annual ROI in excess of 30%

For Buyers

How do we value a business for sale?

We are often asked how we arrive at a market value for a business. Ultimately, there are a number of factors which contribute.

Firstly, we will look at the top line revenue, and how the net profit figure is comprised. Typically, the biggest factor which could affect the price is how much the business is paying to lease the premises. Far too many companies are tied up in expensive lease contracts which in many cases totally eradicates the profit.

We will look at competitors, location of the business, feedback from current customers, staff stability and the quality of the systems and procedures that are being followed.

Normally a business will be valued based on a multiple of the net profit figure, which in most cases is around the x3 level. In exceptional circumstances this could be higher, based on one of the factors discussed above.

Sector Highlights

The UAE's Minister of Economy has revealed that hospitality contributed about AED134 billion ($36.4 billion) to the country's gross domestic product (GDP) last year. Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri said the hospitality industry will be even more reliable in the post-oil economy. He said the sector accounted for 8.7 percent of GDP to grow by 4.4 percent this year, according to data issued by the World Travel and Tourism Council. He added that this contribution will rise at a rate of 5.4 percent annually over the next 10 years to reach to AED236.8 billion by 2026.
