Selling a Business

 

Selling a Boxes and Bags Retail Business

You've invested time, effort, and creativity into building your boxes and bags retail business. But the hard work isn't done yet. Before you can make a graceful exit, you will have to invest yourself in your business sale.

Most entrepreneurs have the skills and stamina to endure and prosper during the sale ofa boxes and bags retail business.
(article continues below)

More than a few boxes and bags retail business owners cave under the pressure and settle for a lower sales price than they should. With the right strategy, your sale doesn't have to end that way.

Economic Considerations

Several economic factors can affect the sale of a boxes and bags retail business. Interest rates, spending, inflation, and other variables directly influence how long your boxes and bags retail business will be on the market as well as its sales price. The truth is that perfect market conditions may never materialize. If you don't believe your boxes and bags retail business would sell for top dollar right now, what can you do to make it more attractive to the marketplace? Increase profitability? Build brand visibility?. When it comes to selling a boxes and bags retail business, successful sales sales often boil down to the business itself - not the economy.

Seller Financing

Business buyers are in a capital crunch. Financial institutions have tightened up their lending policies, making it difficult for inexperienced and undercapitalized entrepreneurs to buy boxes and bags retail businesses. As a result, buyers expect sellers to finance a significant portion of the sale. Although 100% seller financing isn't recommended, sellers are financing up to 70% of the sale price to close deals.

Sale Documents

A basic understanding of legal requirements is foundational for a successful business sale. Despite the confusion that exists among many sellers, the essentials of the sale are described in the Letter of Intent, a seminal document that is created prior to due diligence . The price described in the Letter of Intent may fluctuate based on information that is revealed during due diligence, but the inclusion of new requirements in the final contract could be a deal killer. For sellers, that makes a close review of the Letter of Intent more than a formality - it's a critical juncture on the path to closing.
