Exit Planning Tips
Selling a Hunting Expeditions Business
Your hunting expeditions business is a tangible reminder of the passion and dedication you've invested in your entrepreneurial career. Now it's time to put that same kind of focus into selling it.
Business buyers face their own set of frustrations and complications. Capital is scarce and many buyers simply can't afford the entry requirements for a hunting expeditions business.
You'll always have an excuse for not putting your business on the market. With hard work and dedication, your hunting expeditions business can be sold at or above fair market value right now.
Working with Accountants
Accountants lay the financial groundwork for a business sale. From a seller perspective, an accountant can offer personal financial assistance, especially when it comes to handling the disposition of sale proceeds. You may also want your accountant to assist in the preparation of professional financials to present to serious buyers. In many instances, your accountant will be invaluable in evaluating prospective buyers' financial position and buying capacity.
Laying the Groundwork
In addition to improving profitability and market share, planning the sale of your business will require you to think about how you will present your company to buyers. A first-rate business broker can give your business an edge by facilitating the preparation process and orienting your presentation toward today's buyers. Financial statements, appraisals, operations manuals and other documents lay the foundation for your hunting expeditions business sale, creating incentives for prospects to agree to a higher asking price.
Sellers aren't the only ones who can make concessions in a business sale. In many instances, sellers can request buyer concessions. Although this scenario frequently plays out around seller financed deals, it's possible to push for a higher sales price or other form of compensation if you agree to mentor the buyer for a specified period of time. You can also choose to exclude certain items like equipment or inventory from the deal if the buyer isn't willing to meet your price expectations. By selling excluded assets on the secondary market, you can compensate for an anemic sale price.
