Selling a Company

 

Selling a Karaoke Club

You've heard the naysayers - now isn't the time to sell a karaoke club. But what they don't know is that many entrepreneurs see karaoke clubs as a smart business investment.

We hear it all the time: "I'm waiting until the economy recovers to list my business."

The good news is that ambitious entrepreneurs continue to see karaoke clubs as a smart business investment -- and the market is rewarding owners who are willing to invest time and energy in their sale.

Negotiating Your Sale

As a business seller, you have to be at the top of your negotiating game. In a karaoke club sale, knowledge is power -- the more you know about your business and prospective buyers, the easier it is to sway negotiations in your favor. But great negotiation begins with knowing yourself. What is the realistic price range for your karaoke club? What is the minimum amount you're willing to settle on? Are you willing to offer seller financing or other concessions to close the deal? If you can't answer these questions, you're simply not ready to sit down at the negotiation table yet. If you aren't sure what you need, put negotiations on hold until you gain a clearer understanding of your own deal parameters.

The Best Person to Sell Your Karaoke Club

There are benefits and drawbacks to handling the sale of your karaoke club on your own. On the one hand, no one knows your business better than you do. When it comes to earnings potential, asset condition, and other considerations, you are the world's leading expert on your company. The problem is that your passion for your business can also sabotage your sale. Business owners are subjective and biased about their company's true worth. So in many cases, the introduction of third-party opinions regarding value and negotiation parameters is a fundamental requirement for a successful karaoke club sale.

Finding Prospects

Whether you know it or not, prospective buyers for your karaoke club are all around you. In fact, there is a good chance you already know several individuals or companies that might be interested in buying your business for a decent price. We frequently see qualified buyers emerge from the seller's network of business and personal acquaintances. In other cases, sellers take a proactive approach to finding likely buyers and contacting them directly. Competitors may seem like natural prospects and they are. The downside is that they won't pay top dollar and will probably absorb your company into their own.
