Fumigating Business Acquisitions: Financial Considerations
Startup fumigating businesses carry a host of financial risks and concerns. Without an operational history, it's hard to predict how your startup will actually perform in the marketplace.
One of the ways to mitigate the financial risk of a startup is to modify your approach to tap into the financial benefits of buying an existing fumigating business. Many entrepreneurs buy an existing business for the sole purpose of tapping into the financial benefits of an established customer base.
But most importantly, existing fumigating businesses have documented financial histories. Although you can create pro forma earnings and financial statements for a startup, a business-for-sale should have a well-documented, multi-year history of financial performance.
Consider Buying a Franchise
