Buying a business

Independent advice and a safe pair of hands

When done right, acquisitions can help a business expand its offerings, win new business and extend their reach. Nothing adds more value to the process than having a reliable, experienced and expert partner on your side helping you identify targets, make approaches and execute acquisitions.

At FRP, we don’t do things by halves. Our team will project manage and support you through every part of the buying process. We’re not passive partners, we can research and approach targets as well as complete transactions.   

The key to successful acquisitions is linking every action to our buyer’s strategic goals. This focus guides everything we do, from bringing targets to the table to structuring the final deal. We don’t wait for opportunities to fall out of the sky – our hands-on approach creates them.

Our bespoke research tools, national infrastructure and international network identify the right targets, but our expertise is what makes the acquisition process successful. From valuation advice and raising finance to negotiating and closing the deal, we add value throughout the entire process.
