Selling a Company


Selling an Aeronautical Supplies Business

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

Like it or not, an aeronautical supplies business sale is a complicated affair, made even more difficult by the emotions associated with leaving a business you've poured your life into. In our experience, a common owner concern is how the sale will affect customers and employees.

Yet what many sellers don't appreciate is that a down economy can present the perfect opportunity to sell a aeronautical supplies business.

Preparing Your Aeronautical Supplies Business for Sale

Like it or not, a good business sale takes time. Profitable aeronautical supplies business sales begin with a comprehensive strategy that incorporates planning, preparation and market positioning. Even though it may take years to adequately position your aeronautical supplies business, the amount of preparation you perform will have direct correlation on asking and sale prices. But your efforts to improve your company's position and profitability will only be effective if you invest similar effort into the preparation of accurate financial statements for buyers.

Working with Appraisers

An experienced appraiser is part and parcel of a successful aeronautical supplies business sale. By hiring an appraiser to conduct a thorough appraisal of tangible and non-tangible assets prior to listing, you get a measure of the true worth of your business. Although the appraised value of your business may not be the same as the sales price, you gain valuable insight that can be used to your advantage during negotiations. Following the appraisal, you may choose to delay your sale until you can increase the value of assets and revenue.

Negotiation Teams

It's not unusual for aeronautical supplies business sellers to feel overwhelmed when they negotiate the sale of their business. Negotiation is a chess game, best played with the resources and backend support of a negotiation team. A negotiation team comprised of trusted advisors and senior business leaders is essential in helping you devise a winning negotiation strategy. More importantly, a negotiation team can serve as a sounding board -- an objective presence that prohibits your personal emotions from clouding your judgment or sabotaging your efforts to negotiate a successful deal.
