2023 Market Trends in Business Asset and Share Sales
In this episode, Joanna Oakey answers a few insightful questions from Richard – which leads them to talk about trends in the market related to business asset sales vs share sales. They touch on the shift towards share sales, what they’re seeing in terms of potential challenges and complexities associated with each type of sale, and the strategies that can be done to protect all parties involved.
They also explore the use of “at-risk” components, such as earnouts in deals and their increasing prevalence in both larger and smaller transactions. Both Joanna and Richard also emphasise the importance of staying informed about market developments and adapting to new trends in order to achieve a higher success rate on transactions.
