We Sell.

It's That Simple.

Steps To Selling

Your Business

  1. Get an independent  valuation of the company. 

  2. Clean up all financial & legal issues.

  3. Prepare your exit strategy in advance.

  4. Boost sales & cut unnecessary expenses.

  5. Get business contracts in order.

Negotiate From A Position

As An Owner-Not A Seller

When selling a business, the environment must adhere to the current operations already in place.  Operate as though you have no intentions on selling. This creates an energy buyers will pick-up on and want to continue growing.

Selling When Times

Are Good To Sell

In order to get top dollar for your company, sell when you are growing and making more money than ever. Try to avoid selling when you are on the downswing of earnings. Because revenue has a major impact on any valuation.  

Sell When Market

Conditions Are Good

 A strong indicator of good market conditions is when capital is available for buyers. Regardless of how good your business may be for an acquisition, without the financing in place, selling is a challenge to say the least.   

Sell When "You"

Are Good and Ready

Financial and emotional elements to a business sale must be balanced with an "exit" strategy in place.  Having the next step to one’s life planned after the sale helps with the emotional issues of letting go of the company that you built.

Confidentiality

Business brokers will protect the identity of your company and contact only owner approved buyers.  Buyers must sign a NDA agreement first – a document describing the company without revealing its identity. 

Balance of Experience

The majority of buyers have acquired several businesses while sellers usually have only one sale. Experienced business brokers can level the playing field for an owner making his one-and-only business sale.

Closing a Deal

There is a much better chance that a deal will be closed in less time. Therefore, the faster the sale, the lower the risk of employee problems, customer defection and predatory competition.

Business Continuity

Selling a business is time-consuming for an owner, and with a business broker, the owner can maintain a focus on running the business when a broker is working on the sale.  The owner must keep the "business as usual" throughout the work environment.

Reaching potential buyers

Business brokers have the tools and resources to reach the largest possible base of buyers. Established business brokers maintain a portfolio of existing buyers from previous transactions that they can directly reach out to, making a sale much more likely.
