Extraordinary Business Exit Strategists in Auckland & NZ Wide

Kiwi businesses are some of the most innovative and progressive in the world. Our business leaders must be flexible, adaptable, hands on and determined to standout so far away from the rest of the world. So when it comes time to sell what they have built, we want to help them achieve maximum financial value, create legacy potential, and reap the rewards. An experienced exit strategist can make a substantial contribution to ensuring the business finds the right buyer at the right time.

Most business brokers here in New Zealand typically sell smaller businesses (up to $5 million revenue). There are limited options available for those who are looking to sell mid-market companies with revenues above $30 million. For that reason, SSBG has built and strengthened relationships with global firms that specialise in mergers and acquisitions.

These specialists typically sell businesses with a revenue value between $30 million to $3 billion. Their extensive global relationships, world-class team and proven process bring international strategic buyers and investors to the table. The result is larger, more competitive, multi-bidder auctions that deliver maximum financial returns for their clients.

Put simply, they enable you to achieve your sale’s true potential value by strategically selling to strategic buyers.
