If you’re an entrepreneur, you’ve been schooled in when to spot an opportunity. Once you’ve done this and wish to make an acquisition, Dains can help you grow your business.

Purchasing a business from insolvency is when directors or shareholders wish to repurchase their own business or that of a competitor or totally unrelated company which is insolvent.

This involves negotiating with the Liquidator or Administrator of the company to agree a deal and can involve advising the purchaser on funding options available to them and may involve working with Corporate Finance and Banking Consultants at Dains.

There are various restrictions under the Insolvency Act which need to be considered, including the review of a company name, along with other factors.

Dains can help with:

  • Advising on options available
  • Valuing a business and making offers
  • Notification
  • Financial assistance

With Dains on board, you can make sure your business realises its full potential.
