RAS Business Broker Services for Recruitment Agencies

Selling a recruitment agency involves navigating a complex marketplace. Sellers need to understand valuations, have a good knowledge of potential deal structure, get assistance finding the right buyer and be able to negotiate favourable terms. We specialise in guiding recruitment agency owners through this process, offering tailored services to ensure a successful sale. Here’s an overview of how RAS Recruitment Agency Sales can assist recruitment agency owners achieve their business exit goals.

Expert Valuation and Market Insights

The first step in selling a recruitment agency is determining its worth. We provide expert valuation services based on market analysis and recent sale prices, as well as the internal structure and set up of your agency. We look at your financial performance, client base, market position, and intangible assets like IP, website, brand reputation and your existing client relationships.

Marketing and Buyer Identification

We have an extensive network of buyers and marketing resources to get potential buyers interested in your business. We develop a customised marketing plan for each seller that includes listing the business on relevant platforms (eg Daltons), reaching out directly to potential buyers through our buyer databases, and also sometimes approaching competitors who may have strategic reasons to buy (although the latter don’t tend to make very good buyers generally!).

Negotiation and Deal Structuring

Negotiating the sale of a business can take a lot of time, and both parties to the transaction need careful handling, particularly when there is an emotional element to the sale (which there invariably is). We are skilled negotiators, acting on behalf of both parties to secure the best possible deal for everyone concerned. We assist in structuring the transaction in a way that aligns with your financial and non-financial objectives, such as the timing of payments, earn-out agreements, and the handling of existing staff and clients.

Legal and Regulatory Guidance

Our company is owned in part by a non-practising solicitor, and we have extensive connections in the legal world to be able to either provide you with document templates when needed, but also to be able to refer you to a suitable solicitor with the expertise to assist where required. We offer different levels of expense, from document review solicitors through to full service. Our templates (available free of charge to sellers) include Heads of Terms, Business Purchase Agreements, Due Diligence Request Forms, Share Purchase Agreements and NDAs.

Post-Sale Transition

Ensuring a smooth transition to the new owners is crucial for maintaining the agency’s operations and client relationships after the sale. We can play a key role in planning and implementing the transition process. We work with both the seller and the buyer to create a comprehensive transition plan that addresses operational, client, and employee considerations, facilitating a seamless handover and safeguarding the agency’s future success under new ownership.
