We act for business proprietors to advise and assist in the sale of their business or help them acquire businesses.
Since 2007 we have assisted around 100 business proprietors sell or acquire print related businesses throughout Australia.
We know the industry, the market and have the networks and the means to promote and complete transactions.
As experts in the printing and graphic arts industry we are frequently being asked “what’s my business worth, and are there any buyers”?
Our business appraisal service provides the real answers based on a range of inputs from the business including, financials, customer profile, plant and equipment, staffing, and premises.
Apart from the actual value, we provide the rationale behind the establishment of that value.
As a result of the significant downturn in sale caused by COVID 19, Ascent Partners recognises that many print related businesses will be unable to trade on as normal without making significant changes.
We provide a free initial confidential consultation, where we first seek to understand the financial situation you are in and then provide the options that may be applicable for you to consider.
Ascent Partners works with SME Financial Group to provide printers with the opportunity to independently finance their major asset purchases with a professional service at highly competitive rates.
All to often we’ve seen printer’s equity dramatically reduced when they come to sell their business because of machinery negative equity, specifically with digital plant.
We want to help printers fund these and other plant better, so when it comes time to sell or restructure their business, they walk away with more equity.
Our high-ranking Machinery Classifieds web site is the industry leader: the "Car Sales" site for the printing industry.
It’s easy to list your plant and choose payment plan – no advertising fee / pay commission on sale or vice versa – pay a monthly advertising fee / pay no commission.
We also have a highly-successful WANTED section – you list what you want for Free, then we match you with someone who has a like machine (sellers contact us when they see your wanted machine ad and they have a like machine they want to dispose of).
