Despite the conventional wisdom, we believe current economic conditions are right for selling a log splitting equipment business. We'll tell you what you need to know to achieve a successful sale outcome
In a log splitting equipment business sale, the Letter of Intent contains the vital elements of the deal between the buyer and the seller . If you are seeking buyer concessions, the time to address them is before the Letter of Intent is drafted. For sellers, that makes a close review of the Letter of Intent more than a formality - it's a critical juncture on the path to closing.
What to Expect in a Log Splitting Equipment Business Sale
It's impossible to predict the emotional highs and lows you will experience during the sale of your log splitting equipment business. Given your personal investment, you may also experience disappointment in the market's assessment of your company's value. Accurate expectations, a solid strategy and a strong support system can be valuable resources for coping with the personal impact of the sale.
The Case for Confidentiality
In the business-for-sale universe, publicity translates into risk. A low-key selling strategy is a low risk activity because you can control who does (and doesn't) know that your business is on the market. Eventually, word will leak out. When that happens, it can damage your standing with customers and vendors. Successful sales walk a fine line between total confidentiality and aggressive promotion. We recommend consulting a business broker to learn how you can simultaneously identify prospective buyers and maintain a confidential sale environment.
