When thinking about when and how to sell your business, there are a lot of different strategies to do so.
A business broker can help maintain confidentiality and will work to identify the right prospective buyers who qualify. Most business owners do not want their staff, customers, or suppliers to know they are considering selling as it can ultimately impact the day-to-day business operations in a negative way. The business broker is a vital advisor to the seller at any stage of the sale transaction.
As a business broker, we will do all we can to protect the identity of the company we are trying to help sell. Buyers are first qualified before any personal information is exchanged. Blind profiles are available describing the business without revealing its identity. Confidentiality is always important.
Trying to sell your business is time consuming. Running a business and trying to sell it at the same time can be problematic. A business broker group can maintain a focus on your business with the goal of finding viable buyers as quickly as possible.
MARKETING AND POTENTIAL BUYERS
We have several marketing tools. The internet, direct mailers, internal buyer lists and our website are a few that we use to help support the sale of your business.
VALUING YOUR BUSINESS
Putting a value on your business is very different. Our entire team will evaluate your business. First, we will determine whether we think we can sell it or not. Then, if we believe that we can find a qualified buyer, we will determine a likely selling price range. This price should enable the business to cash flow such that a banker would be interested in financing the transaction, rather than the seller financing the transaction.
No two sales are the same. As a team, we will confront challenges and work toward a smooth transition.
CLOSING A DEAL
Our sole function is to find a qualified buyer for a motivated seller. We only get paid if we are successful. We know that time is of the essence.
