Dealers & Sellers
Current owners of sites, otherwise known as the dealer network, have identified a need for a team of specialists who have insight into the sales process as well as your business and its complexities. More than just a broker, your PetroCONNECT Advisory, Legal and Finance team will be your partner and mentor in the successful transition of ownership in your business. We put a special focus on the valuation of your site, matching the right buyer with the right site, pre-qualification of a buyer, guided assistance with the finance process, the fuel retail license application, oil company interviews, input on business plans and much more to ensure a more seamless process when selling your site. These resources and connections enable us to sell your site or partial ownership professionally, as soon as possible, and at the right price. We are also focused on constant communication with you and keeping you informed as to where we are in the process.
We work on contingency and share in the risk
PetroCONNECT advisors take care of the transaction and sale process from start to finish. Our primary goal is to ensure that your site changes hands sustainably. At the onset, we undertake a mini-due diligence and therefore help the seller to ensure figures and estimations are realistic before engaging with the market. We ensure we conduct a comprehensive and fair valuation of the business. Furthermore, we also include support on retail licensing processes to minimize unnecessary delays and advice on business plans at no extra charge - preventing the seller from having to pay for multiple consultants. Our internal legal department ensures compliance through the sale process, working hand in hand with your advisors and other departments within PetroCONNECT.
