Business Exit Planning
Selling a Mops Wholesale and Manufacturers Business
The sale of a mops wholesale and manufacturers business can be a difficult and trying process. We'll tell you how to thrive in the middle of it and get top dollar for your company.
It's a fact: Successful business sales take time.
Too often mops wholesale and manufacturers business sellers cave under the pressure and settle for a lower sales price than they should. With the right strategy, your sale doesn't have to end that way.
Tips for Seller Financing
Business buyers are in a capital crunch. Banks and other lending institutions aren't eager to lend to unproven and undercapitalized mops 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. It's common for sellers to finance as much as 70% of the purchase price with a payoff period of four or five years, sometimes in the form of a balloon payment at the end of the repayment period.
Next to your broker, a skilled appraiser is the person most capable of adding value to the price of your mops wholesale and manufacturers business. Leading industry appraisers equip sellers with a value gauge that can be accessed during negotiations. If you're disappointed with the appraiser's estimate of your company's worth, you have the option of seeking a second opinion. However, it's more often the case that you will need to adjust your expectations of your business's value to buyers.
Sale Preparation Timeframes
There are no effective shortcuts for selling a mops wholesale and manufacturers business. Buyers want to see growth trends, healthy profits and other variables that increase the likelihood of long-term success. Next, the business will need to be documented in professional financial statements and manuals that facilitate the ownership transition. Since all of this takes time and effort, a mops wholesale and manufacturers business can rarely be ready for the marketplace in less than six months. If you can afford to wait, we recommend investing a few years in improving your business's financial position before you put it on the market.
