Structuring for Exit

Owners of a business in GCC who want to sell 

At Hadef & Partners, our ‘Structuring for Exit’ initiative is aimed at helping owners of businesses in the GCC with realising the full value of their business.

After working with many expatriate business owners and buyers of those businesses, we have established this specific initiative to address the common problems encountered by such owners when they wish to sell all or part of their business.

We have worked and successfully completed many sales of businesses in recent years where Sellers have, with proper planning and engagement, been able to achieve full value for their business. This is effectively the “transaction of a lifetime” for most Sellers, but can also be the most difficult one to complete. 

Expatriate owners of businesses in the GCC are relatively unique in that although they may desire to return home and take up a new life, many can find themselves feeling “trapped” by being unable to realise the value of their hard work through a sale and succession plan. GCC nationals generally have different considerations and requirements for achieving a sale and succession plan.

We passionately believe that we are the best choice to advise Sellers on how to sell their businesses, as evidenced by our significant track record of transactions that we have closed.
