Selling a company

Finding the perfect buyer without taking unnecessary risks

When you decide to exit your business, there will be a number of pressing questions that arise about the upcoming sale process. Our team of dedicated professional dealmakers will ensure that they provide independent brokerage throughout the entire sales process.

The optimal outcome for your life’s work

Independence first

When brokering the sale of one’s life’s work, we base our approach on a relationship of trust and respect. Maintaining independence guarantees a result without any conflicts of interest.

No cure no pay

Together we will define a clear goal. We will make you aware of what you can expect and provide you with the relevant contractual and legal advice. You only need to pay if we achieve the agreed result.

Strong netwerk

SDM has an extensive network that offers access to both the Belgian and international markets of business professionals and investors.
