Niche Market Exit Planning Tips
Selling a Batteries Wholesale and Manufacturers Business
Does the economy have you down? For exiting owners, the idea of listing their company now can be terrifying. But selling your batteries wholesale and manufacturers business doesn't have to be as daunting as it sounds.
The batteries wholesale and manufacturers business-for-sale marketplace is a nuanced environment, full of pitfalls for sellers who aren't prepared for its demands.
Nothing lasts forever and you will ultimately be faced with the task of selling your company. When that happens, your future plans will be dependent on your ability to receive the highest possible sale price for your batteries wholesale and manufacturers business.
Average Preparation Time
There are no effective shortcuts for selling a batteries wholesale and manufacturers business. For starters, the financials need to demonstrate a track record of profitability and growth. Additionally, prospective buyers usually request documentation that allows them to understand the business's daily workflows and operational strategy. Since all of this takes time and effort, a batteries wholesale and manufacturers business can rarely be ready for the marketplace in less than six months. If you can afford to wait, we recommend investing a few years in improving your business's financial position before you put it on the market.
Working with a Professional Accountant
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. You may also want your accountant to assist in the preparation of professional financials to present to serious buyers. In many instances, your accountant will be invaluable in evaluating prospective buyers' financial position and buying capacity.
Tips for Seller Financing
The shortage in today's marketplace isn't interested buyers -- it's capital. Banks and other lending institutions aren't eager to lend to unproven and undercapitalized batteries wholesale and manufacturers business buyers regardless of the business's potential. Rather than abandon their plans entirely, many buyers are pursuing finance concessions from sellers. Although 100% seller financing isn't recommended, sellers are financing up to 70% of the sale price to close deals.
