Without registration, the following services are available to facilitate company sales, among others:
A company sales platform tailored to the needs of smaller-sized sales companies.
In the case of a Standard type listing, you can simply and quickly post your ad for a symbolic amount compared to the value of the business on a platform that is specifically designed to sell businesses (shares, assets).
In the case of a Standard+ type listing, for a success fee, we assist you with transactional advice tailored to the size of the company for sale during the sale process.
Commission-based company sales platform: as a transaction consultant acting on the seller side, we accompany you through the process of selling the company for a commission (success fee). On the Private platform, only registered users can access the ads.
Currently, only Kft form of companies for sale can be listed on the site.
In terms of the size of the ownership, the advertisement can be either for the whole enterprise or a partial ownership (majority or minority shareholding).
If the company would like to transfer only part of its activities, or if your company does not operate in the form of a Kft., but would like to transfer its assets (liabilities) and contracts, please select the assets sale category.
An additional feature of the site is that, from the data provided by the advertiser, an attachment is created to the advertisement. Registered users can download and print it, which can facilitate the management of the selected advertisements. The information attachment contains at least the data specified in the advertisement about the business for sale, but functionally it also allows the advertiser to enter more detailed information compared to the text of the advertisement, in an easy-to-use format.
The site carries out a limited verification process before publishing ads of companies for sale in order to filter any ads that may have false or deceptive content. We strive to ensure that the verification takes place within one business day. As a result, the site reserves the right to refuse to publish the advertisement.
However, this limited verification should not be considered that the site has performed a due diligence of the company for sale (target company) or the assets, or that the site assumes responsibility for the content of the advertisements. Accordingly, it is the responsibility of the buyer that is about to acquire the company to carry out the due diligence of the Kft quota to be transferred or the other assets through involving the appropriate experts in the purchase of the company.
Shares are securities, and as such the advertisement for sale of securities is subject to different requirements. As a result, currently, only quotas of Kft form of limited companies and groups of assets (buiness lines). The site will start its start to take part in the sale and purchase of private companies limited by shares at a later stage, however, it will not be possible to advertise Plc shares.
We believe that, due to the unlimited liability of the member or members, a Bt (and likewise a Kkt) form of company is not suitable for being the subject of a company sale except for the narrowest family circle. Therefore, in the case of Bt and Kkt (types of partnership where at least one member has unlimited liability), we recommend selling not the company, but the assets of the company, or the transformation into a Kft form of company prior to the sale.
Individual assets cannot be advertised for sale. However, if you would like to transfer a a business line or larger a group of assets and/or liabilities (e.g. group of machinery, equipment, customer and supply contracts) regardless of the company form in which you currently operate them, please select the category of asset sale.
Yes. However, in the case of a part ownership, please indicate the size of the shareholding (as well as the size of dividends and voting rights, if different from the size of the shareholding) at least in the form of whether it confers a majority or minority position.
On our site, the meaning of raising capital is when a Kft sells its own existing quota (business share) or issues a new quota in order to raise capital.
Yes, we offer a number of features for transaction advisors (including advisors mediating companies for sale and companies dealing with company sales) that facilitate the mediating of businesses for sale and the management of multiple ads in parallel, regardless of whether the intermediary is on the buy or on the sell side of the transaction.
A different infrastructure has developed for crowdfunding. The site does not deal with collecting loans, capital and investors for business ideas.
Of course, this does not preclude the new majority or minority owner from providing a member loan to the target company.
The focus of the site is on existing companies, regardless of sector, so it does not currently offer a special package of services for startups.
An ad for the sale of a limited company registered in Hungary, quota (business share) of a limited company, or group of assets located in Hungary can be posted by:
Yes. Currently, only companies registered in Hungary, and businesses and assets located in Hungary can be advertised on the site.
On the Standard platform, in the case of a Standard type listing, the advertiser can publish their ad for a nominal amount. In return, the default is that the advertiser itself prepares and uploads the advertisement of the company for sale and communicates with the parties interested in buying the company, while, in the case of, a Standard+ type listing, the success fee-based remuneration includes limited transactional advice, which covers, among other things, covers these tasks related to the sale and purchase of a company.
Our private platform is designed with the needs of larger-sized seller companies in mind, so the publicity of the ad text is limited, and we help the businesses for sale with full scope transactional advice.
In the case of a standard listing, you can use the services of the platform for a symbolic amount, however, among others, you shall take care of drafting the text of the advertisement, communicating with the prospective buyers, and you should be aware what steps are required in the process of the company sale, while, in the case of the Standard+ plan, we will manage the process of the company sale and provide transactional advice on a success fee basis.
In the case of a Standard+ listing, the ad will be displayed on the Standard platform with a service package tailored to the size of the company, while, in the case of a Private listing, we provide full transactional advice, and, in accordance with the needs of larger companies for sale, the text of the ad is only available to registered users.
In the case of a Closed listing, the company for sale does not appear on the website, and we are only looking for a buyer or investor in the circle of strategic and financial investors with whom we have contact with and and in the circle of prospective buyers as agreed with the client, on a success fee basis, but for an increased basic fee.
Due to the different needs arising from the different company sizes, the different types of listings differ, among other things, in the scope of the service and the publicity of the advertisement. At the same time, we wanted to allow the use of the Standard platform for a symbolic amount for smaller companies for sale where the seller would have control over the sale of the company.
The choice between company sales platforms and listing types is basically free. However, site reserves the right to decide which listing type will be used.
If you are an intermediary involved in the sale and purchase of companies, please also read the additional information for transaction advisors.
Just as the needs of the companies for sale and of the owners of the companies for sale, so are the services included in each type of listing are also varied. However, it is easiest to take the price of the companies for sale as a basis. Accordingly, our guideline is that under 30 m HUF sale price, Standard listing is recommended, Standard+ listing is recommended for a sell price between 30 and 100 m HUF, and Private or listing is recommended where the sale price is above 100 m HUF.
You can find more information in the comparison table of the two company sales platforms so that you can decide which platform is right for your needs when advertising your business for sale.
The name of the advertiser does not appear in the ad, but it can be included in the text of the ad.
If you, as an advisor, place an ad for the sale of the quota of a limited company or of the assets of an enterprise operating in another company form, and you would like to publish your own name, you can request your own advertiser subpage, which, in addition to your name and introduction, also contains the active ads you have posted.
In the case of a Standard listing, if you send a message to an interested party via the site, your name - and, if you provided it - your company name will be displayed as the sender of the message. If you would like to avoid this, we recommend using the Standard+ or the Private listing type.
In the case where the ad for the business for sale is placed by a person who already owns the limited liabilty company, can acquire it based on a unilaterally exercisable right (right to purchase), or who has the expectation of acquiring it (e.g. already concluded sales contract, ongoing inheritance transfer procedure).
In all other cases, the person acting on behalf of the owner during the transfer of an existing business or shareholding is considered to be a consultant.
Yes, the exact selling price of the limited company for sale, partial shareholding or assets can be specified either in the text of the advertisement itself or in the information attachment. However, in order to post an ad, it is enough just to determine the selling price range.
As a seller, it is an understandable intention to avoid publishing such an amount of information from which the advertised company for sale could be identified. This is not even necessary for posting ads. However, it is worthwhile to include at least the amount and detail of information in the ad itself or in the information attachment, on the basis of which potential buyers interested in the companies for sale can decide whether the ad is relevant for them.
In the case of a standard listing, we provide some suggestions to fill in the advertisement and the information attachment, specifying the type of standard information, from which the advertiser can decide which information to provide, except for the provision of certain minimum mandatory information that allows the advertisement to be searchable and does not identify the selling company in itself. For the other types of listings, we prepare the text of the advertisement.
Of course, we do not recommend disclosing confidential information either in the advertisement of the business for sale or in the information attachment, but even directly to those interested, until a confidentiality declaration has been signed.
You can find out about our services for the preparation of the information materials during the sale of the company on the Consulting services page.
Yes, in the case of a Standard listing, you can save the text of the ad as a draft on the go and later proceed to upload the advertisement for the business for sale, part-ownership or group of assets using the saved draft.
The site will return the ad text if we propose a change to it.
The advertiser can also modify the text of the already published advertisement an unlimited number of times in order to ensure that the text of the advertisement of the undertaking for sale, shareholding or other asset provides a sufficient amount of up-to-date information for persons interested in buying the business.
Ultimately, the advertiser is the owner of the ad, so you can also cancel (deactivate or delete an ad for the company for sale that has already appeared) at any time.
In the case of a partial ownership of a limited liability company (where the quota is less than 100% of the registered capital), please indicate as the selling price not the estimated value of the entire enterprise, but the selling price of the partial ownership itself.
If your co-owners are also willing to sell, you can indicate this in the ad.
However, if all the co-owners wish to sell their business shares together, please select the sale of an entire business category.
If the seller is the sole owner of a limited company, then of course you should choose the category Company for sale (formerly: entire enterprise). When selling a quota in a limited liability company, if the quota to be transferred (or, in the case of multiple co-owners acting jointly, quotas) does not represent 100% ownership of the company, the Partial Ownership category is the right choice.
We have collected below some special cases for example:
|Example||In this case, please select the following category|
|Sole trader would hand over its activities||Assets (formerly: Division)|
|The majority owner of a limited company is the advertiser, while the minority owner may also be willing to sell||Partial ownership|
|Minority owner of a limited company agreed with all co-owners on the joint sale||Company for sale|
|The majority owner of a limited company has a purchase option for the remaining business shares as well.||Company for sale. Please indicate the sale price as already including the amount payable to you for both the majority stake and to the minority holders for the exercise of the call option|
|The subject of the sale is a business line (division), however, if there is a sufficient guarantee (signed contract of sale), the seller is willing to undertake to outsource the business line to a new subsidiary and ultimately transfer the ownership of such subsidiary.||Assets|
If possible, already in the preparation phase for the sale of the company.
The site primarily provides an advertising platform for sellers of a company for sale, a quota (business share), an asset (including a business line, i.e. a self-contained or well-defined group of assets and/or liabilities), regardless of whether the advertisement is posted by the seller itself or by an adviser (intermediary) acting on its behalf. With the exception of the Standard listing type, this is accompanied by transactional advice.
Finding a potential buyer is a necessary part of the sale of a company, but not in itself sufficient. Both in preparing the company for sale and in the actual company sale process, we recommend the participation of experts with appropriate competence. You can find a description of the advisory services provided to the company sale process through the experts we work with on the Advisory services page.
The seller is not obliged to provide the name of the advertiser or of the business for sale in the advertisement or in the information attachment, so anonymity can be chosen in the materials in the publicly accessible part of the website.
The advertiser is in control of the advertisement, so among other things, the advertiser decides the content of the advertisement, can also decide from which interested parties it accepts the intention to contact, and can withdraw the advertisement of the business for sale at any time without giving any reason.
In the form for filling in the content of the information attachment, we provide a number of different types of information to help you describe the company for sale, but it is up to the advertiser to decide which of these information they want to include in the information attachment. If we propose a change to the information attachment, it will be returned to the advertiser for approval before it is published on the website.
However, in order for the advertisement to be searchable on our website, we ask you to provide certain minimal information that is not in itself suitable for identifying the company for sale.
In the case of a standard listing, there is no other fee to be paid for posting and publishing the ad (including the information attachment) in addition to the advertising fee, either in the form of a fixed or a success fee tied to the success of the sale. Transaction consulting, which is optional to the Standard listing, is available on an hourly fee basis.
In the case of a Standard+ and Private listigs, we ask for a commission (success fee) on the successful sale of the company in addition to an upfront listing fee. In the cases of these, there is no hourly fee for the related transactional advice as it is already included in the success fee.
The additional advisory services available for the sale of a company are subject to a separate fee.
Posting an ad on the adequit.com Company Sales and Capital Raising Portal does not involve any obligation to sell. However, please only place an ad if there is a real intention to sell, if you are actually willing to sell the company within the price range indicated in the advertisement, under the usual conditions for the transaction. If you are only interested in the selling price available on the market, you can use our consulting services.
While the advertisements of the companies for sale and the related transactional advisory tasks can be well standardized, the experts cooperating with the site can make an offer for additional consulting services based on the specifics of the sale or purchase transaction and the services requested.
Of course not. The site only provides an opportunity to be able to effectively involve experts experienced in selling and buying companies into the company sale and purchase process.
Yes, however, in this case, the ad must include a warning that the advertiser does not currently own the share for sale.
Not on the basis of a mere pre-emption right. In the case of the sale of a quota (business share), an advertisement may only be placed by a person thatalready owns the quota, can acquire it based on a unilaterally exercisable right (right to purchase), that has the expectation of acquiring it (e.g. already concluded sales contract, ongoing inheritance transfer procedure), or acts on behalf of the seller (e.g. transaction advisor).
The business sales portal focuses on the transfer and takeover of existing and operating businesses. However, it is also possible to advertise for the transfer of existing but no longer operating enterprises.
No. Even if the sale price is 1 EUR, but only companies for sale with a positive value can be advertised on the site, where the buyer pays and not vice versa.
In this case, please select the sale of assets category.
You can find the advertising fees of limited companies for sale, business shares and groups of assets on the Advertising and consulting fees page.
The advertiser is not obliged to provide the name of the advertiser or the seller in the advertisement of the business for sale or in the information summary, so anonymity can be chosen both in the publicly accessible part of the website and in the materials in the closed part of the website (accessible only to registered users).
However, if you send a message to a potential buyer via the site, your name and, if provided, your company name will be visible as the sender of the message. If you want to avoid this, we recommend that you use an intermediary (transaction consultant) when selling a company, or retain the site itself to post the ad and to establish contact with interested parties.
However, for our own limited verification process, we ask for basic information about the advertiser and company for sale.
We will try to complete our limited verification procedure as soon as possible. Accordingly, we aim to ensure that the advertisement of the company for sale appears on the Standard platform within one working day, provided that the advertising fee has been received on our account.
In the case of Standard+ and Private listing types, the advertisement of the company for sale will be displayed as soon as the necessary documentation with the agreed content has been prepared.
If you would like to hand over the webshop not as a stand alone limited company, but as a set of assets (including domain name, website, stock of goods, contract file), please select the category "assets" and the label "Webshop for sale".
If there is already a serious buyer candidate who has made an acceptable offer to buy the company for sale and, if applicable, has also started to negotiate the sale and purchase agreement, or - in the case of a larger company - has signed a letter of intent with the interested party in which you have agreed to an exclusivity provison, then after logging in, you can deactivate the ad by clicking on the Deactivate button in the Posted Ads menu item.
If things do turn out that way later, you can click Activate button to show the ad again at any time within the paid advertising period.
No, the site does not undertake liability for the content of advertisements of companies of company for sale, business shares and assets for sale.
Before publishing an ad for selling a business or other assets, the site carries out a limited review process. The reputation of the site is more important to us than the advertising fee from a single advertisement, so we endeavor to filter out advertisements that are manifestly untrue or otherwise deceptive, but we do not guarantee that this will be done or the result.
In the event of a company acquisition, it is the responsibility of the purchaser to carry out typically the legal, financial and tax due diligence as necessary according to the circumstances prior to taking over the target company, business share or assets. This due diigence may include the review of the activities of the company, the assets, liabilities, contracts, the marketability of the quota offered and the right of disposal of the person acting as the seller. It is also the responsibility of the purchaser to make its decision on buying the company taking into account the result of the due diligence.
Yes, our consulting services are also available in the case of a company acquisition, provided that we do not provide such services to the seller side in connection with the same company for sale. Although the site provides advisory services not only through itself, but also through the experts cooperating with the site, the principle is that it provides the same type of advisory service to only one side at a time. In such an event, we could recommend another consultant that is not involved on the sell side.
Although the scope of data that can be provided in the information attachment on the Standard platform by the advertiser of the business for sale may be comparable to the content of the executive summary of the full-fledged information memorandum prepared for potential buyers or investors, the information attachment about the company for sale:
We believe that the possibility to search for ads in a specific geographic region provides the optimal balance between, on the one hand, the understandable requirement of advertisers of the companies for sale that the company cannot be identified from the advertisement, and, on the other hand, the requirement that buyers looking for a company for sale can find the right advertisement for their goals during the company purchase process.
Notwithstanding the above, advertisers can specify a more accurate address in the text of the advertisement of the company for sale.
The advertiser did not provide contact information in the advertisement and does not respond to inquiry sent through the site. Can I send him another message?
No, you can send another message only if the advertiser of the business for sale accepted or declined to contact you or sent a response. If the advertiser does not respond for an extended period of time, we recommend that you contact the site.
