Selling a Business

 

Selling a Business Cards Business

Many business leaders say that now isn't the time to try to sell a business cards business. At Gaebler, we think it's a great time to sell a business cards business. Here's why . . ..

A business exit is always a trying experience. But when you need to sell your business cards business in a depressed economy, the challenges can seem insurmountable.

The economy hasn't squashed the market for business cards businesses. Not surprisingly, buyers expect to receive value for their dollars - and that means sellers need to demonstrate that their businesses are capable of delivering anticipated returns.

Preparing Your Business Cards Business for Sale

The outcome of a business sale is largely determined prior to a market listing. Profitable business cards business sales begin with a comprehensive strategy that incorporates planning, preparation and market positioning. Even though it may take years to adequately position your business cards business, the amount of preparation you perform will have direct correlation on asking and sale prices. Additionally, you'll need time to compile financials and other information that buyers will expect to receive.

How to Increase Sale Price

There are no simple ways to sell a business cards business. If you don't know what you're doing, your business could languish on the market for months or even years. Fortunately, a business broker can minimize the impact on your bank account and personal well-being. If you try to sell your business without a broker, your time will be consumed by the details of the sale. Subsequently, you'll be distracted from the demands of your auto supply store, business will suffer, and the sale price you receive for your company will be dramatically reduced. For a lot reasons, a decision to hire a broker is almost always the right decision, especially for sellers who need to receive top dollar for their business cards businesses.

Dealing with Buyers

Buyers can present challenges, especially during the due diligence stage. It's completely normal for business cards business sellers to be asked pointed questions during due diligence. When concerns arise, it's helpful to base your responses on facts and data. If you don't know the answer to a question, there's no shame in admitting ignorance and telling the buyer you'll look into it. If due diligence drags on too long, your broker may need to intervene.
