How to sell an air transport business

When considering the sale of an air transport business, it is important to factor in industry-specific matters that could cause problems during the sales process, in addition to those generic issues that occur when selling a business.

In doing so you positively influence the sale by pre-empting potential delays and hindrances, attract interest from a broader base of interested parties, and help to realise the highest possible value from your company.

Why are you selling your air transport company?

Maybe you have built up the business as planned from the outset, and wish to reap the rewards of your hard work when it is operating at its prime? On the other hand your business may be experiencing a slow-down, and you want to exit before this decline becomes unmanageable. Alternatively, it may simply be the right time to retire and extract the value you have been working towards.

Whatever your reasons for selling, you should seek guidance and professional support from experienced business sales brokers, specifically those with expertise in the air transport industry. This ensures you consider and address all areas of your business that could derail the process, or reduce your company’s value in the eyes of potential buyers.

Value my air transport business

If you are interested in selling your air transport business, you will be required to carry out a valuation to determine the financial worth and calculate a possible sale price. When entering into negotiations with prospective buyers, this knowledge will help you maximise market value. Our in-house, valuation team offer an air transport business valuation service to help you take the first step to sell your business.

How much is my air transport business worth?

Valuing an air transport business can consist of high-value assets, such as the core transport and the associated machinery and equipment to maintain and manage the air travel vehicle. We have a proven track record of working closely with air transport businesses providing both domestic and international services. The Selling My Business valuation team will require 3 years’ worth of recent/historic accounts to begin the valuation process for your air transport and logistics business.

"After four decades in the air travel industry, I was ready to sell my business which consisted of a network of private air travel vehicles. The Selling My Business team illustrated a track record in this industry so I appointed them. Fast forward two months - they found me a very reputable buyer."

What industry issues do you need to consider before the sale of your business?

A number of issues can be challenging for companies operating in air transport, potentially negatively affecting the final sale price if not taken into account. Regulatory compliance and maintenance of assets are just a couple of considerations in your business sale.

  • Automation and new technology

The adoption of, and regular investment in automation and new technologies can present an attractive proposition for would-be purchasers, streamlining operations and enabling greater efficiencies and profits in the future. Businesses that have not invested in such technology could be unfavourably compared with competitors.

  • Reliance on global economies

Potential volatility across global economies can create an unstable operating environment for air transport companies, and add to a post-Brexit uncertainty on future trading/travel agreements worldwide.

  • Regulatory compliance and maintenance

Any history of non-compliance with regulations, or anomalies or gaps in maintenance records, for example, could affect the value of your business in the eyes of a potential buyer.

Professional assistance at every stage

It is clear then that planning your sale in advance gives you time to present it at its best, and therefore optimise its value. Some business owners begin to consider this soon after setting up or purchasing their business, but in any case it can take several years to execute plans for a corporate sale.

Our expert team at Selling My Business has the industry knowledge and experience that makes a difference if you are thinking of selling your air transport company. We will make sure the process is handled professionally, and help you achieve the best possible price for your business.
