Selling a Company


Selling a Child Abuse Treatment Center

The sale of a child abuse treatment center can be a difficult and trying process. But with a few tips, you can keep your shirt and your sanity in the sale of your business.

Business sellers sometimes face a long, hard struggle to get fair market value for their companies. But with the adequate preparation, your child abuse treatment center can attract buyers who recognize its potential.

Fortunately for sellers, forward-thinking entrepreneurs continue to be attracted to child abuse treatment centers that exhibit strong financials and potential for future growth.

Economic Considerations

When you sell a child abuse treatment center, there are a number of variables you need to consider. A combination of economic conditions and market sentiment can complicate your sale. The truth is that perfect market conditions may never materialize. A much better approach is to focus on the factors that always attract buyers and investors. When it comes to selling a child abuse treatment center, successful sales sales often boil down to the business itself - not the economy.

Post-Sale Details

Due diligence has ended and you're ready to close on the sale of your child abuse treatment center. All that stands between you and the sale proceeds is a few signatures, right? Not so fast. There are several details that still need to be addressed. What will the ownership transition look like? Are you prepared to deal with the tax consequences of receiving a significant sum of money in exchange for your business? How will you prepare your employees for your inevitable exit from the business? You, your employees and the buyer all have a stake in making sure the sale ends as smoothly as possible. If possible, work with the buyer to create a transition strategy that minimizes the impact on the business and your workforce.

Leveraging Seller Concessions

It's becoming more difficult to sell a child abuse treatment center without considering seller concessions. In a down economy sellers become bankers; an unwillingness to finance at least part of the sale of a child abuse treatment center can translate into a dead deal. With entrepreneurs struggling to secure capital, you may be the buyer's only source of financing. If you are unwilling or unable to offer financing, be prepared to offer other types of concessions to close the deal.
