Selling a Company

 

Selling a Software and CD ROM Production Services Business

In any market, there are sellers and then there are serious sellers. We'll give you the tools you need to be taken seriously when you decide to sell your software and CD-ROM production services business.

If you plan on selling your software and CD-ROM production services business quickly, prepare to be disappointed.

The business-for-sale market is extremely dynamic. Knowledgeable entrepreneurs understand that market timing isn't nearly as important as other factors in a software and CD-ROM production services business sale. To improve sale outcomes, you will simply need to tailor your software and CD-ROM production services business to today's buyers.

Team-Based Negotiation Strategies

Even if you hire a business broker to facilitate the sale of your software and CD-ROM production services business, it's likely that you will be the front line negotiator. Negotiation is a chess game, best played with the resources and backend support of a negotiation team. By enlisting the assistance of a negotiation team (senior leaders, experienced negotiators, etc.), you can improve the quality of your negotiation strategy and position yourself to receive top dollar for your software and CD-ROM production services business.

How to Choose a Business Broker

Good business brokers inevitably produce better business sales. No two software and CD-ROM production services business sales are alike. That means you'll want to look for a broker who has been around the block and possesses substantial experience selling businesses in the industry. As a practical matter, you'll also want to focus your search on brokers who have pre-existing relationships with attorneys, appraisers, and other professionals who can provide assistance at various stages of the process.

Economic Considerations

When you sell a software and CD-ROM production services business, there are a number of variables you need to consider. Interest rates, spending, inflation, and other variables directly influence how long your software and CD-ROM production services business will be on the market as well as its sales price. But at Gaebler, we advise our business partners to look beyond simple economic data when determining whether it's the right time to sell a software and CD-ROM production services business. A much better approach is to focus on the factors that always attract buyers and investors. In our experience, the most important factors in the sale of a software and CD-ROM production services business have little to do with the economy.
