Selling a Company

 

Selling a Fabrics Wholesale and Manufacturers Business

Most businesses are susceptible to economic conditions and fabrics wholesale and manufacturers businesses are no exception. But in some cases, a down economy can actually improve saleability. All it takes is a strategy to identify solid prospects and convert them to buyers.

Business buyers are a timid lot, even more so now that they are facing an uncertain economic landscape.

At Gaebler, we're seeing fabrics wholesale and manufacturers business sellers succeed by applying sound sales principles combined with a refusal to be intimidated by a down economy.

Negotiation Teams

It's not unusual for fabrics wholesale and manufacturers business sellers to feel overwhelmed when they negotiate the sale of their business. Negotiation is a chess game, best played with the resources and backend support of a negotiation team. A negotiation team comprised of trusted advisors and senior business leaders is essential in helping you devise a winning negotiation strategy. More importantly, a negotiation team can serve as a sounding board -- an objective presence that prohibits your personal emotions from clouding your judgment or sabotaging your efforts to negotiate a successful deal.

Tips for Working with A Business Broker

Brokerage is a mainstay of the business-for-sale marketplace. Brokerage is particularly common in the fabrics wholesale and manufacturers business-for-sale market, where aggressive selling strategies are the norm. However, your broker will still expect you to materially participate in the sale of your business. To maximize your broker's potential, conduct periodic consultations throughout the process and deliver requested information as quickly as possible.

Moving On

The decision to sell your fabrics wholesale and manufacturers business can't be made without adequate consideration of what will happen after the sale. If you aren't sure what's next, you could be in trouble because future plans and selling strategy are inextricably connected. In today's market, many buyers expect seller financing - a concession that might not be a possibility for sellers whose next step requires the entire proceeds at the time of the sale.
