Dealers & Sellers

For Sellers, Owners and the Dealer Network

We understand the challenges and pitfalls in the process of selling your site successfully or part of the ownership structure.

Current owners of sites, otherwise known as the dealer network, have identified a need for advisors who have insight into the sales process as well as your business and its complexities. More than just a broker, your PetroCONNECT advisor 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 by doing an initial due diligence upfront at our risk and cost to fast-track the delivery of guarantees, matching the right buyer with the right site, pre-qualification of a buyer included in the financing process, guided assistance in the fuel retail license application, oil company interviews, input on business plans and much more. These resources and connections enable us to sell your site or partial ownership professionally, as soon as possible, and at the right price.

PetroCONNECT offers buyers the following services and solutions:

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.
