Selling a Company

 

Selling a Cigar, Cigarette, and Tobacco Products Wholesale and Manufacturers Business

Owning a cigar, cigarette, and tobacco products wholesale and manufacturers business hasn't always been a bed of roses, but it's been worth the effort. Before you walk away, you have one more challenge to overcome: A successful and profitable business sale.

It's a fact: Successful business sales take time.
(article continues below)

The business-for-sale market is extremely dynamic. Knowledgeable entrepreneurs understand that market timing isn't nearly as important as other factors in a cigar, cigarette, and tobacco products wholesale and manufacturers business sale. The key is to go into the sale with your eyes open and with complete awareness of market condition.

Sale Preparations for Your Cigar, Cigarette, & Tobacco Products Wholesale & Manufacturers Business

The outcome of a business sale is largely determined prior to a market listing. Successful cigar, cigarette, and tobacco products wholesale and manufacturers business sales begin with a comprehensive strategy that incorporates planning, preparation and market positioning. Even though it may take years to adequately position your cigar, cigarette, and tobacco products wholesale and manufacturers 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.

Seller Financing

Capital is hard to come by these days. Banks and other lending institutions aren't eager to lend to unproven and undercapitalized cigar, cigarette, and tobacco products 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.

How to Choose a Business Broker

Good business brokers inevitably produce better business sales. In the cigar, cigarette, and tobacco products wholesale and manufacturers business industry, experience is a must-have characteristic for qualified brokerage. The best brokers should also come with a list of references, a demonstrable track record and a proven plan for selling cigar, cigarette, and tobacco products wholesale and manufacturers businesses.
