Selling a Company

 

Selling a Batteries Retail Business

You've learned a lot during your tenure as a batteries retail business owner. The next step is to position your business for the demands of the business-for-sale marketplace.

It's a fact: Successful business sales take time.
(article continues below)

Yet what many sellers don't appreciate is that a down economy can present the perfect opportunity to sell a batteries retail business.

How to Skillfully Address Buyer Concerns

Business sellers sometimes struggle to maintain a positive attitude when dealing with buyers. Due diligence preparation can mitigate the irritation factor, but you should still expect to field numerous buyer concerns before closing. Avoid answering buyer concerns with vague generalities. Instead, be as specific as possible, even if it means doing additional research before offering a response. If due diligence drags on too long, your broker may need to intervene.

Timing Your batteries retail business Sale

If you're feeling like your tenure as the owner of the batteries retail business is coming to an end, the time to sell is now. Opinions are mixed and some consultants are advising batteries retail business sellers to put their plans on hold until the economy fully rebounds. At Gaebler, we have a much more optimistic view of your chances in the batteries retail business-for-sale market. The inventory of what we consider to be quality batteries retail businesses is actually low right now and there is room for the right sellers to realize substantial gains with investment-conscious buyers.

Handling Unexpected Outcomes

Every business seller dreams of a fast sale and a fat payday. Ultimately, many sellers find that the market is unable to deliver their anticipated outcomes. Despite your best efforts, you need to prepare yourself for the possibility of receiving less than you expected from the sale of your batteries retail business. If buyers don't seem to be willing to meet your expectations, consult with your broker to modify your strategy and market approach.
