Specialized resources

In order to offer a more personalized support service, PME MTL has specialized resources in several sectors:

A business transfer is not a decision that can be taken lightly. The transferor, as well as the buyer, each have their share of responsibility to ensure a proper transfer. The buyer must also be ready and equipped to ensure the continuity of the business project.

The sale and purchase of businesses have become quite common. This is an excellent option for a business owner without a succession plan, as well as for young entrepreneurs who want to get into business with an established company. The transfer of a business has many advantages, but still requires a good amount of preparation from both the transferor and the buyer to ensure the sustainability of the company.

Knowing that this type of change requires taking significant decisions, the experts at PME MTL support and guide the parties involved in their business transfer procedures. We are proud to offer a personalized transfer support service adapted to the needs of businesses and buyers.

Our business transfer support service

Whether you are a business owner without a succession plan, or an entrepreneur interested in acquiring an existing business, our coaching service will guide you every step of the way.

Here are some of the key elements of our business transfer support service:

  • Analysis of the progress and direction of your business transfer project
  • Support in entrepreneurial succession planning
  • Identification of potential financial partners
  • Reference to specialized, competent, and experienced resources
  • Support with hiring new personnel

Our support service ensures clarity and simplicity throughout your business transfer procedures. Our experts will assist you in making this change happen as easily as possible. We also invite you to discover our many other financing methods. PME MTL is here to help you with your business project.

Do you want to go further?
