Selling a projection equipment and supplies business? You'll need to be prepared to address a variety of challenges that are common in the business-for-sale marketplace.
(article continues below)
Although it takes hard work and dedication, if it's time to exit your projection equipment and supplies business there is a good chance you can sell it for a good price -- even in today's market.
What About Market Conditions?
No one plans to sell a projection equipment and supplies business in a down economy. Although the economy is gaining steam, recovery is slow and entrepreneurs are holding their cards close to their vests. However, many business sellers don't realize that a full economic rebound can have devastating consequences, particularly if sellers who have waited to list their businesses suddenly create a glut in the business-for-sale marketplace. So what's our point? The economy isn't the most important factor in the sale of your business. Instead, you should be focusing on making your projection equipment and supplies business as attractive as possible so to buyers right now.
When to End Negotiations
Negotiations have a way of dragging on forever. But sooner or later, someone needs to bring negotiations to a close. Unfortunately, that responsibility often falls on the seller. It's not unusual for a projection equipment and supplies business sale negotiation to reach an impasse over price or other concessions. At this point in the process, an awareness of negotiation parameters really pays off. If the buyer is unwilling to accept your minimum demands, it's time to end negotiations and move on to the next prospect.
Working with Accountants
Accountants lay the financial groundwork for a business sale. From a seller perspective, an accountant can offer personal financial assistance, especially when it comes to handling the disposition of sale proceeds. A professional audit can ease buyer concerns and amp up the value of your financial presentation. With seller financing becoming common, professional accountants are playing a more central role in negotiations and buyer qualification.
