In 15+ years in business and with 100+ businesses bought and sold, we’ve gained plenty of happy customers. Here’s a selection of what they had to say about working with Paul and Alex.
We were introduced by our business consultant. Paul quickly got to grips with the various issues around the business, albeit I was not sure we could achieve the value Paul suggested.
On the basis we wanted a quick sale, we agreed a sale with lower target. However, the figure achieved was much nearer Paul’s assessment than ours, and he did fight for every pound. His advice on when to stand firm and when to compromise with the buyer was vital throughout the sale.
Thanks for your help in exceeding the family’s expectations.
Helena Parkinson, Tre Mercati Ltd
When we first asked Paul and Alex to sell our business, we did not think it would take so long. However, they always remained attentive, understood what was driving the business forward and what our key conditions were for a sale. They were also not afraid to advise when to reject offers and protected our interests on more than one occasion.
Chris Taylor, M & C T Ltd
I have worked with Uscita for nearly 10 years in the acquisition of a number of businesses.
What is valuable to me is that Uscita grasp our key commercial goals and help me understand the risks of each target that we appraise. We have appraised many more than we have bought and Uscita’s advice is always crucial in deciding those we choose to pursue and those that we do not.
They also understand how to structure deals – addressing risks in the business and guarding our interests.
Deal management is also important and Uscita provide that route direct to the seller to solve issues that arise – more than once they have kept deals on track.
Whether they have found a target, or I have, I value their honest advice and guidance.
Adrian Smith, Stonegate Technologies Ltd
Alex and Paul were marvellous over the recent sale of my business. Looking back, I think that I went to market at a very unfortunate time, a few months prior to the Covid-19 outbreak. Enquiries were naturally low in volume however the time and effort shown by them never faded or faltered. A buyer was eventually found and they remained very supportive throughout the whole process. A big thank you from me, a very happy customer.
John Dagnall, Merseyside Printing Company
Paul’s technical expertise were crucial, but what I valued most was the honest advice and guidance. it was clear our interests were always first and he demonstrated this several times during the negotiation.
Richard Gallagher, Excelsior Panelling Systems Ltd
So, following the sale of my business, I am staring out of my window admiring my new Aston Martin parked on the driveway. Occasionally, I glance at my new Breitling watch to reflect on just how much time I now have on my hands to do the things I’ve always wanted to do, but couldn’t previously because of working 7 days a week.
I’m so pleased that you were recommended to me by Suzi Clipson-Boyles who also sold her business through your company.
From our initial meeting, it was obvious that you clearly understand what buyers are looking for and how best to present my business to make it as appealing to them as possible.
The way in which you marketed my business, to ensure that any potential buyer really understood the true value, was skilful. The accuracy of your predictions, regarding the way different buyers would approach the purchase of my business, was quite remarkable.
Not only that, of the three offers we received you told me clearly which to reject and which to work with. I have to say that your initial valuation was way more than I ever could have expected, and I thought you were completely bonkers! However, looking at my bank account today, this was another point that you proved to be 100% accurate with.
Having never sold a business before, I was obviously totally reliant on your advice and guidance. Your guidance through the potential pitfalls and the endless jargon was invaluable. The way in which you managed the whole process was impressive. At times, you managed peripheral activities without involving me in the technicalities until it was absolutely necessary.
I truly believe that without your interventions, skills and understanding of the whole process, I would never have sold the business, and certainly not for the amount achieved. As a result of your reliable, unbiased, advice we were able to work towards an outcome that was the best for me and not just focused on getting a deal for you.
Selling a business is incredibly stressful and there is no doubt in my mind that without your support, expertise, guidance and counsel the process would have been beyond my skill set. I would recommend you, without reservation, to anybody I know looking to sell a business. Thank you.
Anthony Briggs, B11 Education
Paul thinks outside the box; his experience is second to none and I trust him entirely. He reassured me throughout. There was great care and attention given from Uscita, even after the sale had been completed.
I’d recommend working with Uscita based on the reassurance I received. the honesty and detail, the fact there were no hidden costs and most of all that they achieved the result they said they would. I was steered in the right direction, with Paul happy to be challenged and excellent at keeping everything moving.
I’m adamant that no one else would have got me the deal that Uscita got me. I have already referred one of my contacts to work with Alex and Paul and will continue to do so.
Chris Davies, Ndeavours Ltd and First Corporate Solutions Ltd
I began working with Uscita in February last year to discuss the best way forward with my secondary business, focusing on eco friendly vehicles. My main business was very busy and so I didn’t have time to devote to capitalising on the opportunities that the other company was producing.
I wanted to sell the business to someone who would be able to make the most of the company after I had spent ten years growing it and building up its online visibility and reputation.
A year on and Uscita have helped to source a buyer who is passionate about the industry and has purchased 50% of the business, with a plan to grow the business in partnership.
This investment has allowed the company to be developed, with new ideas for marketing and advertising. Although it’s early days of the venture, there is enthusiasm and progression, we are working on a structure for the future.
Paul has been friendly, helpful and flexible. At every stage I’ve been dealing with a real, local person, rather than some faceless corporate entity. I’d certainly recommend Uscita based on my experience to date.
Paul, an eco-friendly automotive business
I would like used to thank you for the professional way you helped me to sell my business it was a very pleasant experience! I used to like our little chats on the telephone to discuss my business sale and especially the laughs we had together! Take care I wish you and Paul the best for the future.
Mr G. Taylor, G Taylor Motor Vehicle Repairs Ltd, Sandbach
Thank you so much again for organising the sale, transition and payments. It has been a pleasure dealing with you. Your business acumen is extremely professional, knowledgeable and effective.
Tony Burgess, Birchgrove Eggs, Aberystwyth
I’d recommend Uscita to those looking to add value to, build or sell their company. Paul and Alex were both hugely supportive. They helped us to get to grips with the figures and offered invaluable financial advice. The attention to detail was apparent and, with Paul digging under the surface to help us understand what was being offered, he was worth his weight in gold. I’ve been really appreciative of the support from Uscita as well as the after-sale care Alex and Paul have provided us with.
Pamela, Audio Transcription Services Company
Having worked with Paul on an acquisition project some years ago, when he approached me saying he had a buyer looking to buy my business, I figured it was worth meeting. My business was exactly what CRoWD was looking for.
Paul’s initial concern however was about my goals for a sale – price, legacy, time. Having a clear idea of my destination helped later in the sale, retaining my focus on what was important to me, when the inevitable challenges of the deal arose.
There is also real value in having Paul’s experience. He guided me through the challenges of an intense process. You will receive advice from many different parties and having someone to work through this with me, someone clearly on my side who understood my goals, helped me retain my sanity as we waded through the meetings, negotiations, legal advice, tax advice and due diligence.
I will happily recommend Paul and Uscita to any of my friends who are looking to sell.
Ian Bailey, Bailey Street Furniture Group
When we first met, you helped us understand what we needed to do to find the best price and buyer for our company.
You helped us solve the issues, to understand our business and its value a lot more.
You helped us build a stronger business and the time taken to get this right cannot be underestimated in terms of the result achieved.
Once the business was on the market it was like a whirlwind. Within 6 weeks the sealed bid process delivered the buyer we preferred.
Throughout due diligence you remained at our side, guiding us, calming us down and helping resolve issues right up until the end. It was as stressful as you told us it would be – but the reward was worth the effort!
Without doubt we could not have achieved the sale we did without your input. With our heartfelt thanks.
Jason & Isobel Cooper, Pure Power Ltd
The communication was excellent, I couldn’t fault Uscita in any way. We had all the advice we needed and knew if there were any areas of uncertainty, we could ask. Both Alex and Paul provided advice at crucial times in the process and both me and my mum felt well looked after and supported. Working with Business Partnership took away the stress of chasing buyers whilst trying to run a business!
Denise & Vicki, North West Accountancy Service
I was recommended to Paul by my Accountant. The main thing I am pleased to confirm is that Paul and Alex can be trusted with the sale of a business. They work hard and keep their word. When we had to pause the sale, due to a change in location, the business went back on the market as agreed, with the minimum of fuss and cost. Since then they have introduced me to various potential buyers and we have ended up with the right one. They helped me manage the whole sale and were key to negotiating the very tricky terms that were required. Without their support and guidance and liaison with the buyer the sale would not have completed. Thanks for your help and I will happily recommend you to others needing expert guidance in selling their business.
Mr M. Moore, Malcolm's Motorhomes, Crewe
Both Paul and Alex were very helpful with good, sound advice at a very difficult time as we completed right in the middle of Coronavirus. With their expert guidance it went without a hitch. I would give them a 100% recommendation.
Peter Bailey, Eric Bailey Butchers
I was selling Tabtime as I was ready to retire, I’d run the business for forty years. When I put the business on the market I worked with both Alex and Paul, Paul was the frontman whilst Alex worked hard in the background. They were always diligent and on hand, quickly responding and I felt like I could ask anything I needed.
When considering the sale, I had looked around for potential brokers and wanted to work with someone local. Uscita fitted the bill perfectly, they have national coverage with a local feel. I was confident in using their service and felt comfortable that they were not based too far away.
I’m not one for going over the top with my praise but I would recommend Uscita and was happy with their service.
Terry Jackson, Tabtime
Paul remained focused and professional, and eventually a suitable buyer was found and the company was successfully sold to our satisfaction.
Paul is a professional and experienced individual with a good commercial and practical ability. I would have no hesitation in using him again in a similar role.
Thank you for all you have done to help us finally achieve an exit from working.
Steve Young, Mechandling
Mo and I would just like to say what a pleasure it has been dealing with you. You were very proactive and professional and your communication with accountants and solicitors was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone wishing to sell their business.
Mo & Andy Griffin, Mo of Eccleshall
Working with Uscita during the sale of my company meant I had someone to turn to for advice and clarity throughout the process. I’d absolutely recommend working with them. I was always kept in the loop and they delivered an excellent service. Even after the sale Alex and Paul have kept in touch.
John Parker, JP Exhausts
I would certainly recommend Paul and Alex’s services, I already have in fact. I felt supported throughout the sales process. The process felt more like I had friends supporting me, rather than advisors. Alex would step in at just the right point if anything needed chasing up with the other parties involved. I can’t thank Uscita enough, I felt I always had someone on my side.
David Reading, The Cheshire Gap
I would definitely recommend working with Uscita and Paul, get to know him and he’s incredibly genuine and I knew he’d do anything he could to help me get to where I wanted to be. I know some brokers promise the earth and then don’t deliver, Uscita was the reversal of this. Paul gave no false pretences, he was upfront and honest about the pitfalls and then delivered on the sale. This meant I wasn’t lulled into a false sense of security, I was aware of what might occur during the sale.
Gaby, Mousehouse Gifts
After running the Village Newsagents in Formby for 17 years, myself and husband Stephen were looking to retire. We’d placed our business on the market with an estate agent and after two years we were still nowhere near a sale, so we tried a different tact.
Our accountant recommended we contact Uscita and I’m glad we did. Whilst there was quite a lot of back and forth once we’d found the right buyer, Alex supported us throughout and was always there at the other end of the phone if we needed anything.
Uscita kept their finger on the button, they were diligent and kept us up to date at every stage. I’d certainly recommend working with Uscita if you are looking to sell your business.
Susan Cairns, Village Newsagents
Thanks. I received a really great service and I am very pleased with such great buyers. The new owners will be fantastic!
