How to Sell Your Business With Us
Once you’ve decided to sell, it’s a good idea to learn more about the selling process. Overall, this includes finding out a fair value for the business, organizing the finances, preparing the marketing materials, and, last, but certainly not least, finding the right buyer. We can help with each of these steps, so you have less to worry about and can start focusing on the changes in your life once the business is sold.
Business Valuation – We know you’ve spent a lot of time working on building up the business, so we can help with the business valuation. We appraise your business by looking into every detail to make sure we find a fair value to market the business at to attract buyers and make sure you get a good price and the best terms.
Organizing Finances and Preparing Marketing Materials – We’ll go through the finances of your business to make sure we find the true “cash flow” of the business, highlight the business’s strengths, along with pointing out its potential. Buyers want to see a complete package, so they can make sure the business will be right for them. Don’t settle for brokers who prepare inferior marketing materials or make mistakes with the financials. This is a common complaint from serious buyers.
Finding the Right Buyer – We then work to find the right buyer. Though this is the hardest part of selling a business, we can help make it easier. We’ll discretely market the business, screen responses and non-disclosure agreements, and make sure potential buyers have the finances to purchase your business.
We Can Help Buyers, As Well
Working with a business broker isn’t just for those who want to sell their business. If you’re interested in buying a company, we can help. You’ll want to consider the type of business you want to buy, think about your current experience, and find a business that’s going to be suitable for you. Then, once we help you find a business to buy, you’ll want to go through the next few steps, below, to make sure it’s the right company for you and that you will want to purchase it. We also help business owners who want to expand their current businesses through acquisition.
Meet With the Seller and Ask the Right Questions– Meeting with the seller gives you the chance to ask pertinent questions and find out if this is the right business to buy for you. You’ll learn more about the company, why it’s being sold, what the value of the business is, and what the future growth and profits you might look like, if you purchase it.
Research the Industry – Research the latest trends in the industry to make sure the business is going to continue being profitable. We can help with the research, so you will know what to expect from the business and whether the business has long-term viability or whether something that might change in the near future.
Review Company Finances – It’s always necessary to review the company finances to make sure the business is in good standing now, so you can start bringing in profits as soon as possible after the sale. We’ll help you, along with an accountant, to go through the finances to see if there are any red flags.
Put In an Offer – If you are happy with the above information, the next step is to put in an offer. This is accomplished through a Letter of Intent (LOI). Once it’s accepted by the seller, and you finish due diligence, banking and legal, you can close on the business and become the new owner.
