About Us

Backer Group is a husband-and-wife team of business owners established to acquire, support, and grow exceptional SMEs in the UK

What makes us different

Unlike private equity firms who will flip your business for a quick profit, we acquire for the long-term with no intention of selling, ever. You know your staff and brand will be in good hands for the many decades to come.

Unlike competitors who will blend your business into their larger group, we will continue to operate your business stand-alone, maintaining the strong brand, culture and unique identity that have made the company successful.

We have experience closing deals and providing rewarding exits to business owners. We know what it takes and can quickly close without wasting your time. We can provide an indicative offer within days.

We provide business owners with a flexible approach in how we structure the transaction – such as payment terms, transition period, and desired owner role post-sale. Our goal is to allow owners to accomplish their goals for liquidity while ensuring the long-term success of the business.

What to expect

We have years of experience in business acquisition processes and are committed to ensuring a solid, predictable, and efficient process – and to guaranteeing full confidentiality for all parties involved.

The process typically takes 3-6 months, beginning with an introductory conversation. We recognise that selling a business is an emotional and important decision; our goal is to make the process smooth, transparent, and equitable.
