SELLING YOUR PHARMACY

What makes PSC different?

With many years of experience selling pharmacies for one of the leading agents in the sector and acquiring over 300 businesses on behalf of one of the major multiples, the directors of PSC are well placed to assist you in the sale of your pharmacy business whether it be a single shop or a group.

We are able to provide you with a valuation of your business based on prevailing market conditions and, as we fully appreciate that every business is unique, we can advise on the correct marketing strategy to suit your needs. Most importantly we will ensure that we achieve the best possible price from reliable and able purchasers. PSC work on a strictly no sale/no fee basis and there are no hidden charges.

Should you decide to instruct PSC to act on your behalf we will ensure that the transaction is handled from start to finish in a professional manner and will be in regular contact with all parties including solicitors, accountants and surveyors to assist with the issues which inevitably occur in a sale of this nature.

If required we are able to provide details of professional advisers who are familiar with pharmacy transactions. Rest assured, we understand that discretion is of the utmost importance so every transaction and conversation will be dealt with in the strictest of confidence.

We appreciate when you are considering selling your pharmacy there are other pharmacy sales specialists you can choose. Some of the reasons you might choose PSC are given below.

Why choose PSC?

  • We always view the transaction from our client’s perspective

    PSC always put our client’s interests first. Unlike other pharmacy sales agents, as well as acting as brokers, our directors have the benefit of having been the buyer or the seller in hundreds of pharmacy transactions.  Our vast experience enables us to advise you from the very beginning right through to completion of the sale. Our service includes regular contact with your solicitors and accountants to monitor progress which will help to resolve any problems that might arise during the sale process quickly and efficiently.

  • As a small company we are able to offer a fully bespoke service

    There is no such thing as a ‘standard’ pharmacy sale so we will adapt the service we provide to meet your specific requirements. This also means our fee structure is flexible and we are very happy to discuss a range of fee options with you at the outset.

  • Marketing your business

    PSC are able to offer several marketing options to meet the specific needs of the seller. For example we regularly sell pharmacies on a discreet basis (without the need for advertising) where the sellers do not wish the staff to be aware of the sale until such time as they are confident that the sale will complete.

    In some cases the vendors instruct PSC to offer the business to a select number of prospective purchasers with specific instructions to obtain the best price possible from those parties. Occasionally we are instructed to exclude a particular party from the sale.

    Whatever your specific requirements PSC can offer you a marketing plan to suit your requirements.

  • Our unique combination of skills means we can offer more

    There’s a lot more to selling a pharmacy than simply exchanging legal contracts.  As well as providing advice about preparing your pharmacy for sale (to maximise the price achieved and minimise the risk of problems) we can deal with a number of other matters such as the GPhC, the NHS Change of Ownership processes and advise on various property matters.  That’s all included in the service at no extra cost.

  • We fully understand pharmacy

    We work exclusively in the pharmacy sector and have a registered pharmacist involved in every sale.  That means we understand your business better than many of our competitors.  If you are concerned about how local commissioning arrangements might affect your sale or the impact of Category M or contractual changes we can provide the advice you need.

  • We have access to an unrivalled network of other specialist advisors

    Over our 50 years of experience we have built up a network which includes some of the foremost pharmacy specialists in the UK.  If you are looking for tax planning advice, legal representation, stock takers or other expert advisors just ask and we can point you in the right direction.

  • We are available when you are

    PSC is not a nine to five, Monday to Friday business.   We know that most pharmacy owners do not wish to discuss selling their business in between dispensing prescriptions. So we are always happy to meet with you in the evening or over weekends to fit around your diary and maintain confidentiality.
