When the decision is made to sell the business the next big question is …. Who will buy it? Buyers can be difficult to find and finding the right one makes a difference. Buyers come from many different sources and many different shapes and sizes, but all buyers can be categorised into two types …. A financial Buyer or a Strategic Buyer.

Knowing the difference between the two and which one is a better fit for you and your business is paramount in the success of the deal.

This week we bring you expert advice on this topic from Crowe - a CIEX member firm. Check out their article here on “Which is better: a financial buyer or a strategic buyer?”.

Their case study highlights the differences between the two types of buyers and illustrates the impact on the business owner.
