Dealing with Buyers
Buyers can present challenges, especially during the due diligence stage. Due diligence preparation can mitigate the irritation factor, but you should still expect to field numerous buyer concerns before closing. When concerns arise, it's helpful to base your responses on facts and data. If you don't know the answer to a question, there's no shame in admitting ignorance and telling the buyer you'll look into it. Refer to the Letter of Intent to determine how to wrap up due diligence and move the buyer on to closing.
Next to your broker, a skilled appraiser is the person most capable of adding value to the price of your water heaters wholesale and manufacturers business. By hiring an appraiser to conduct a thorough appraisal of tangible and non-tangible assets prior to listing, you get a measure of the true worth of your business. Although the appraised value of your business may not be the same as the sales price, you gain valuable insight that can be used to your advantage 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.
Setting the Stage
Effective water heaters wholesale and manufacturers business preparation focuses on communicating value to prospective 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. Specifically, brokers can advise you about the preparation of financial statements and other documents buyers expect to see in a premium water heaters wholesale and manufacturers business opportunity.
