Selling a Company

 

Selling a Welding Equipment and Supplies Manufacturers Business

Your welding equipment and supplies manufacturers business has been good to you. The next step is to position your business for the demands of the business-for-sale marketplace.

Most business sellers are interested in disposing of their businesses as quickly as possible. But that's not how a welding equipment and supplies manufacturers business sale works.
(article continues below)

To sell a welding equipment and supplies manufacturers business now, sellers need to make a strong case for buyers to purchase at or near the asking price.

Should I Hire a Business Broker?

Anyone who has ever sold a welding equipment and supplies manufacturers business has eventually needed to decide whether to use a business broker or go it alone. Is there a cost associated with hiring a broker? Sure - about 10% of the final sale prices. But a good broker will make selling your welding equipment and supplies manufacturers business much less painful. You can also expect to receive a higher sales price for your business in a broker-assisted deal.

Finding Prospects

Many sellers don't realize how many prospective buyers there are for their businesses. Although some welding equipment and supplies manufacturers business sellers advertise their businesses in general classifieds, the most successful sales are those in which professional brokers seek out likely buyers. If possible, steer clear of selling to a competitor if for no other reason than the fact that competitors pay less for welding equipment and supplies manufacturers businesses than other buyers.

Seller Financing

Capital is hard to come by these days. Banks and other lending institutions aren't eager to lend to unproven and undercapitalized welding equipment and supplies manufacturers business buyers regardless of the business's potential. Rather than abandon their plans entirely, many buyers are pursuing finance concessions from sellers. As you prepare for the sale of your welding equipment and supplies manufacturers business, expect to be asked to finance a substantial part of the sale price.
