For How Much Can I Sell My Business?
For how much can I sell my business?
Considering the sale of a business the first question most business owners want answered is, “What is the value of my business? How much can I sell it for?” Although that is an important question, it’s not THE most important question. The MOST important question is, “If I sell my business, how much will I get to keep for me and my family?”
Sales price and deal structure have a huge impact on every business sale. CBI-Sunbelt believes that no business will sell if the reasonable expectations of the Business Owner aren’t met. CBI-Sunbelt Business Advisors of the Ozarks has a track record of success in helping business owners choose the right time and right deal structure for the sale of a business.
Because CBI-Sunbelt is focused on helping the business owner make the right decision at the right time, not just collecting a commission for the brokers from the sale of the business.
CBI-Sunbelt steps for planning the successful sale of any business are:
Gather the appropriate information needed to help establish the value of a business. Your CBI-Sunbelt Advisor will provide the business owner with a list of the information required
Interview with a CBI-Sunbelt Advisor-once the information about the business is gathered an interview is conducted with the business owner to determine the trends and health of the business
If appropriate, the CBI-Sunbelt Advisor may recommend that an independent, third party business appraisal be obtained from a certified business appraisal firm.
CBI-Sunbelt will help the business owner prepare the package for submission to the appraisal firm. The Business Owner reviews the package with the Advisor and submits a check to pay for the appraisal and the Advisor will ship.
Once the appraisal comes back (usually about two-three weeks after submission of the package) the CBI-Sunbelt Advisor will sit down with the business owner and the business owner’s CPA and Attorney and discuss the value of the business and a proposed deal structure to maximize the Business Owner’s net from the sale of the business.
Once the Business Owner has determined that the sales price and deal structure meet the Business Owner’s expectations and requirements, the CBI-Sunbelt Advisor will prepare a listing agreement for the sale of the business.
The business is confidentially marketed to local, regional, national and international buyers through the exclusive CBI-Sunbelt confidential marketing plan which is reviewed with the Business Owner.
CBI-Sunbelt’s track record of sales for Business Owner’s following this system is over 80%, far exceeding the industry average.
