Partnering with Valloop

It’s a once in a lifetime decision, for most. How will you navigate it?

Selling up’s never just about the money. Money’s job one, no question. But it’s only one dimension in a complex decision.

You’ll want to find a buyer you can trust – without revealing sensitive details to competitors. One who respects you and won’t take advantage once you’re committed. One that’s ready to move at pace, not grind it out (and try to grind you down).

You also need to engage your own people with care, to keep the business on track. Will your buyer rip out overhead and people? Or will they respect the team you’ve assembled? Will your key staff see the buyer with optimism, or take one look and walk before they’re pushed? If your managers are interested, they’ll be looking for backers ready to support them, not interfere.

Most likely you’ve got a dozen other issues you’re juggling. Do your advisers have the insights you need, and are their incentives aligned to your goals? How will you limit the harm if a deal goes sour? Will you still be coaching the business, after selling? What does your legacy look like?

We respect what you’re doing. We want to help you do more, with a financial structure that fits your business and helps it breathe. With the employee-involved ownership we bring, your people will gain a vested interest in the future success of the business.

Employee ownership is the beating heart of our model. It’s not an empty promise of ‘options’, it’s a real stake for your people. We know that businesses like yours, with a bit of soul and with managers who have skin in the game, are unbeatable. Our strategy aims to align everyone involved, to add value for the team, for their communities and for society. A rarity in this market, we can do this while delivering a fair proportion of the value on Day One.

We recognise that businesses with a strong ethos, with managers and employees who take ownership, are unbeatable. It’s why we’ve adopted employee ownership within Valloop, too. As a means for managing several of the risks you’re handling, it’s a game-changer.

Partnering with us can unlock a prosperous future for both owners and employees. You'll pass on a strong legacy to them and to the communities they inhabit. We’ve been told there’s nothing like us, out there. We’re keen to prove it.
