Dbb Marine Business Brokers has a focus on
assisting buyers and sellers of marine based businesses due to the uniqueness
of the marine assets. We recognize the specific nature of marine assets and
have extensive reach into the commercial marine markets. We are able to market
businesses to a buyer base that is focused on commercial marine activity
including, design houses, manufacturers, ship builders, OEMs, services, transport,
tourism, offshore in businesses worth between $5 to $150 M in value. In larger
sales processes we engage with the large accountancy firms leveraging their
capacity and back room abilities.
What we can do
We have specialised skills that add significant value when preparing a
business for sale. Neil holds extensive business banking and liquidation
experience that is invaluable when considering all aspects of preparing the
right information in the data room. Hence when we focus on the drive to the
presentation phase in preparation for engaging our buyer groups there is
confidence and clarity in the information required by credible business buyers.
Couple John's maritime asset and business understanding, we can hone the
data room to present a coherent business detail set, to put your business in
the best light with the buyer audit process. Consider this ...... if the data
presents well and the buyer's auditors (Deloittes, PWC etc) have little trouble
finding what they need, it provides confidence the business is well run and
that can translate into higher value offers.
Our understanding and
As owners start to consider retirement, the next
generations have the ability to leverage off quality reputations and
strengthening business financials. In the most part owners are keen to support
their hard earned reputations and loyal followings with a period of transition
to new owners which can ease the learning curve for the uninitiated buyers.
DBB can provide details of such businesses to
pre-qualified buyers (includes confidentiality agreements). Fwd bookings are
always impacted by knowledge of the potential sale of a business and we are
careful with regards to client exposure. That said frankly any business can be
for sale at the right price.
Due to the nature of the selling effort, we work on a small group of
businesses at any time to focus capabilities. Our objective is to maximise hard
earned effort for the once in life time opportunity to sell your business. No
other business sale organisation globally applies these combinations of skills
for marine based businesses.
