Selling a Company

 

Selling a Lottery Information and Results Business

Looking for shortcuts? You won't find them when you sell a lottery information and results business. In this industry, a business sale takes time, effort and dedication. But with a few tips, you can keep your shirt and your sanity in the sale of your business.

Most business sellers are interested in disposing of their businesses as quickly as possible. But that's not how a lottery information and results business sale works.
(article continues below)

The economy hasn't squashed the market for lottery information and results businesses. 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.

Are You the Right Person to Sell Your Business?

An unassisted business sale is a double-edged sword. Without a doubt, you have the most at stake in the outcome of your sale. That makes you the most passionate advocate for your lottery information and results business in the business-for-sale marketplace. The problem is that your passion for your business can also sabotage your sale. Nearly all sellers have an inflated sense of their company's value. At a minimum, conduct an independent appraisal of the lottery information and results business to gain an objective sense of fair market value.

Economic Considerations

Several economic factors can affect the sale of a lottery information and results business. Interest rates, spending, inflation, and other variables directly influence how long your lottery information and results business will be on the market as well as its sales price. The truth is that perfect market conditions may never materialize. Rather than watching the economy, we recommend watching buyers and tailoring your business to meet their investment expectations. When it comes to selling a lottery information and results business, successful sales sales often boil down to the business itself - not the economy.

Seller Financing

Capital is hard to come by these days. Financial institutions have tightened up their lending policies, making it difficult for inexperienced and undercapitalized entrepreneurs to buy lottery information and results businesses. As a result, buyers expect sellers to finance a significant portion of the sale. As you prepare for the sale of your lottery information and results business, expect to be asked to finance a substantial part of the sale price.
