When to End Negotiations
Negotiations have a way of dragging on forever. Yet eventually many negotiations reach a stage where further discussion is pointless. In a pet medications business sale, a stalled negotiation can be an indication that the deal is dead. If you are adequately prepared, you'll know what your bottom line is -- and if the buyer is unwilling to meet your bottom line requirements or if negotiations are stalled, it's time to step back from the negotiating table and re-evaluate your options.
What to Expect in a Pet Medications Business Sale
It's impossible to predict the emotional highs and lows you will experience during the sale of your pet medications business. The emotions of a sale are complicated by the fact that it may take time to locate the right buyer and the final sale price may be less than you think your pet medications business is worth. Although it isn't easy, you can mitigate the emotional impact of a pet medications business sale by setting realistic expectations before you list your business.
The Best Person to Sell Your Pet Medications Business
An unassisted business sale is a double-edged sword. Few people know your business as well as you do. But your knowledge and personal insights about the pet medications business are also the problem. You see your company's potential. But buyers don't pay for potential - they pay for current market value. Business brokers and other third-party consultants bring objectivity to the sale process and give you much-needed insight about buyers' mindsets.
