Selling a Company

 

Selling a Laser Game Center

We hear from a lot of business owners who are timid about listing their laser game center. Despite the mood of the market, we think there are still opportunities to receive a good price for your laser game center. Here's what you need to know . . .

Waiting for better economic times to sell your company? That's a common anthem in the small business community.
(article continues below)

The economy hasn't squashed the market for laser game centers. Like always, unprofitable and poorly positioned businesses struggle to find buyers while sellers who have invested time and effort to prepare their sale are being rewarded in the marketplace.

Pre-Sale Checklist

The upfront time you investment in the sale of your laser game center will pay big dividends at closing. Perhaps the most important pre-sale consideration is to right-size your expectations to the realities of the market. Once your expectations are in the ballpark, you can move on to making your business presentable to prospective buyers.

Benefits of Third-Party Assistance

Rarely, if ever, do owners sell a laser game center without outside assistance. The enlistment of a qualified business broker is an excellent first step. Additionally, you may want to hire professionals for legal, valuation and other functions before you put your business on the market. The early recruitment of external resources reduces your risk and results in a more predictable final outcome.

Business Valuation

Multiple valuation methods exist for a laser game center. While the income method uses anticipated revenues as a value basis, the asset method focuses on the company's capital, real estate and intellectual assets. Using recent laser game center sales as its foundation, the market method factors market conditions into the valuation process. A good appraiser will often use multiple valuation methods to arrive at a reasonable estimate. But regardless of the method that is used, it's always in the seller's best interest to increase revenue and asset values prior to a sale.
