buying a business

Here at Signature Acquisitions we recognise there are many different reasons you may want to acquire a business and we have assisted with many of those scenarios such as entry into new markets or jurisdictions, growth, diversification, owning a business for the first time or simply an investment. What we see is businesses are keen to use mergers & acquisitions to accelerate their transformation needs in an increasingly competitive landscape. We have found it is on most companies boardroom agendas.

Businesses currently available

Below are some of the businesses that we currently have for sale. We would always advise you to get in touch as we frequently have businesses for sale that clients don’t wish for us to list publicly.

  • Signpost

    Which way do you want to go?

    Sometimes our clients don't want to visibly list on our website in favour of us marketing their businesses more privately. Which means that if you're seriously looking please do ask to be added to our mailing list. If you are looking to become your own boss separate to the listings below we have many businesses in the signposted categories that are actively for sale. Please do email us if you would like any further information.
