You need someone who has in-depth knowledge and insight of your market and its current performance, a clear understanding of the goals you want to accomplish and who can provide genuine expertise that will deliver a commercial advantage. 



If you have chosen to grow via acquisition, we have the ability to draw out hidden risks associated with sustainable earnings, taxation, and operational aspects, when performing due diligence assignments, which can save you time and money in the longer term. 

  • Obtain an in-depth understanding of target businesses, not only from a financial perspective but also the commercial, operational and legal aspects.
  • Deliver to tight timescales, assisting vendors with information collation to aid the efficiency and speed of the process, raising any red flags at the earliest opportunity.
  • Provide analysis and explanations to help sellers understand our views where they differ so that sensible discussions can be held.
  • Advise buyers to think carefully about post-deal integration, with many of our clients continuing with Hazlewoods post-completion support across outsourcing, accounts, audit and tax.

It is never too early to put exit plans in place, with many business owners considering their strategy 3-5 years in advance. By spending time making your business 'sale ready' now, you will be in a good position to go when the time is right, as well as strengthening your business in the intervening period.

Remember, buyers often have extensive deal experience - most sellers do not. Working with us early on will put you in charge of the sale process, create competitive tension and secure you the best deal that realises maximum value.

Testimonial from Dawn Field

"Hazlewoods gave me an organised, efficient and professional service when I was selling my business. John and his team have extensive knowledge of the healthcare sector, which gave me the sense of reassurance that I needed to reach the difficult decision to go ahead and sell my business. They offered support and advice regarding the sale of the business from start to completion."

Testimonial from Katherine Aucott

"I approached a few companies with knowledge of the care sector, but it was only after speaking with John Lucas at Hazlewoods that I felt really comfortable about taking the next step towards my retirement. A phone call swiftly led to a meeting with John and a reassuring conversation made me feel that John really understood Supported Living and the type of service that I had been so passionate about."
