Selling a Company

 

Selling an Industrial Equipment and Machinery Training Business

Planning and execution can dramatically influence the price you receive for your industrial equipment and machinery training business.

Business buyers are a timid lot, even more so now that they are facing an uncertain economic landscape.
(article continues below)

Most industrial equipment and machinery training businesses are good business opportunities, a fact that is not going unnoticed by today's discerning buyers.

Negotiation 101

As a business seller, you have to be at the top of your negotiating game. More often than not, the person with the most knowledge will come out on top in an industrial equipment and machinery training business negotiation. But great negotiation begins with knowing yourself. What is the realistic price range for your industrial equipment and machinery training business? 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.

Timing the Market

Now may be the best time to sell an industrial equipment and machinery training business. Although the economy is generally struggling, low interest rates make industrial equipment and machinery training businesses more attractive to entrepreneurs who want to get in the game. As the interest rates rise, it will be more difficult for buyers to make the numbers work in their favor. So we see market timing as a concern that can be easily mitigated by applying fundamental sales strategies and adequately preparing your company for buyers.

Post-Sale Details

As your industrial equipment and machinery training businesssale nears completion, there is a lot of work remaining to be done. The transition to the new owner, the distribution of sale proceeds and other issues can weigh heavily on sellers. You, your employees and the buyer all have a stake in making sure the sale ends as smoothly as possible. If possible, work with the buyer to create a transition strategy that minimizes the impact on the business and your workforce.
