Find Training Companies for Sale

Our professional search service includes:

Acquisition Brief – Initial Consultation with an M&A specialist

During this meeting we’ll discuss your acquisition needs and criteria, including budget, size, location, EBITDA and sector. We’ll also talk you through the acquisition process, what you can expect from us and answer any questions you may have.

Training Company Search & Identification

Using your criteria, outlined and agreed at the commencement of our service, we will then identify companies (targets) who are involved in providing training or similar services in the UK, or elsewhere if specified by you, for potential acquisition.

Presenting & Approaching Targets

We will provide you with a monthly schedule and a short description of potential Targets. If instructed, we will then approach targets on your behalf to discuss a possible purchase/investment.

Initiating the Purchasing Process

We’ll provide you with feedback on the reactions of targets following our approaches and if suitable, we will initiate a Non-Disclosure Agreement and a Purchase Process.
