Re: Small business for sale wanted

As I understand it, you wish to acquire a small business. What kinds of businesses did you have in mind, and some ballpark figures would be helpful.

Have a look at http://transgate.ch (not me)

I have a company for sale, but 25.000 CHF is to low.

Re: Small business for sale wanted

That would be a shop or office space but not a business and with that amount of money you will not get anywhere in CH I am afraid

Re: Small business for sale wanted

I am the market leader in squirrel trading. The business was originally started in 1936 by my grandfather. From humble beginners buying and selling squirrels in Devon he soon expanded opening offices in most market towns. By 1970 he had cornered the UK market with it estimated that 94% of all squirrel trades were processed by the firm.

The oil crisis in the early 70s played into the company's hand as many people moved from heavy old consuming products to squirrel based ones. Joining the common market allowed the company to expand into Europe.

With my father now at the the helm the 80s proved to be a decade of remarkable growth, pushing into America. It quickly became recognised that our Squirrels were far superior to ones found domestically. The heartland of the US squirrel industry collapsed, not helped by the power of the US Squirrel unions.

In the 90s we were the first western squirrel company to open in Russia and pioneered the selling of squirrel derivatives.

I took over the company at the start of the new millenium and looked east. We were awarded the first Chineses squirrel licence in 2003 and have even managed to gain a foothold in the fiercely strongly Japanese market.

Our last quarter trading figures show a year on year rise of 8%. I would be looking for single (or perhaps staggered) cash purchase/equity transfer at no less that 48billion USD. Considering the growth potential of the chinese market and the explosion of interest in our Squirrel treatment plants in India and Northern Africa this offers incredible value

Re: Small business for sale wanted

It would cost you 20,000CHF plus notary fees to start your own GmbH. At 25,000CHF you would only get a very distressed business. Might make more sense to start one from scratch.

Both - the red, naturally, is the premium product.

We also provide stealth squirrels to the British and American military - although I doubt you have see any of them.

Why are you all responding to a thread that's 3 years old? I would hope he's sorted it all out by now.

Phil_MCR responded to a spammer. That post has been removed, so it looks like a bizarre necro.
