Selling a Company

 

Selling a Fly Fishing Equipment and Supplies Business

You've learned a lot during your tenure as a fly fishing equipment and supplies business owner. The next step is to position your business for the demands of the business-for-sale marketplace.

Waiting for better economic times to sell your company? That's a common anthem in the small business community.
(article continues below)

Most fly fishing equipment and supplies businesses are good business opportunities, a fact that is not going unnoticed by today's discerning buyers.

The Case for Confidentiality

Confidentiality determines risk in the business-for-sale marketplace. A low-key selling strategy is a low risk activity because you can control who does (and doesn't) know that your business is on the market. When and if your sale becomes public knowledge, competitors can use that information to weaken your position in the marketplace. Maintaining confidentiality isn't easy, but without it you won't get top dollar for your business. In a worse case scenario, a profitable fly fishing equipment and supplies business can be reduced to one that is struggling to survive. Brokers and consultants can mitigate the risk by implementing confidential sale techniques.

What to Expect in a Fly Fishing Equipment & Supplies Business Sale

It's impossible to predict the emotional highs and lows you will experience during the sale of your fly fishing equipment and supplies business. Given your personal investment, you may also experience disappointment in the market's assessment of your company's value. Although it isn't easy, you can mitigate the emotional impact of a fly fishing equipment and supplies business sale by setting realistic expectations before you list your business.

Tips for Working with A Business Broker

Brokerage is a mainstay of the business-for-sale marketplace. It's typical for fly fishing equipment and supplies business to rely on brokers to reduce market time and increase the final sales price. 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.
