The collaboration gives mid-market business owners seeking to sell their private Companies a unique combination of a Boutique Advisory Firm adept at guiding businesses towards the best-possible financial status to achieve the optimum sale price and the acumen of experts in the Sale and Marketing of businesses.

Lloyds Corporate Brokers, an arm of Lloyds Business Brokers, has pioneered an effective model of marketing businesses by focusing on specific targets, instead of a scattergun approach.
Advisory Partner Director Brett Plant said the joint venture would target mid-market businesses in the $1 million to $50 million bracket.
“Advisory Partner will work with the business owner to ready the business for sale, including providing advice on its valuation and taxation arrangements, and assessing potential purchasers,” he said.
Lloyds Brokers Director Garry Stephensen said Lloyds Brokers would use its vast network of potential purchasers to identify buyers and manage the Sale process.
The combined skills of the two firms gives sellers confidence they can get their business into the best possible shape for a sale and know they can achieve the most advantageous price with a best-fit purchaser.
