Additional information

Price: Expressions of interest are invited. Given the size and nature of the business it is expected that it will attract the interest of buyers who are sophisticated enough to come to their own value decision and are not reliant on being given an "asking price". However, it does need to be said that the owners of this business
have reasonable price expectations. They have researched multiples that similar businesses have achieved at market (completion prices, not asking prices).

Finance: Some element of seller financing is available. However, interested parties need to be aware that any deal proposed or accepted would consist of the buyer having "skin in the game" (their OWN funds, not borrowed) equal to no less than 50% of the headline price offered. I appreciate this will not suit buyers who are looking to find a deal first and raise funds later.
