Re the sale of my business
The sale of my company was made so easy by Peter Troy, he has the ability to explain everything in layman’s terms and that was comforting to me. I found him very professional in every way. The time he spent on selling this business was incredible; working long hours into the night.
Right from day one he had clients at my front door and he makes it his business to gather knowledge of how our business operated so he could explain to prospective buyers the nuts and bolts of our operation which was so important to the purchaser. Peter kept me updated daily on how things were progressing. When Peter shows your business he likes to fit the buyer to the business rather than just selling it to anyone and that has worked very well in our sale, as the purchaser feels very comfortable and confident that he can build this company even more.
Peter knew nothing about this business, however he was able to recommend ideas on how to improve turnover due to gathering of information. I would say he could have run the plant himself by the time it was sold. That to me shows how dedicated he is to his profession.
On two occasions, the purchaser’s accountants suggested less than half the price for our business. Peter dismissed this and sold our business at the full selling price.
If you’re thinking of selling or buying a business Peter Troy should be the one to deal with.
Many thanks to you Peter
