Selling a Company

 

Selling an International Restaurant

Your International restaurant is a tangible reminder of the passion and dedication you've invested in your entrepreneurial career. Now it's time to put that same kind of focus into selling it.

Business-for-sale markets are less dependent on economic conditions than most sellers think they are.

More than a few International restaurant owners fail to receive fair market value for their businesses. That's unfortunate because all it takes to get a fair price in today's market is ample planning and an awareness of what's important to buyers.

Tips for Working with A Business Broker

Brokerage is a mainstay of the business-for-sale marketplace. It's typical for International restaurant to rely on brokers to reduce market time and increase the final sales price. Brokerage doesn't replace the seller's requirement to be involved in the sale; it augments the seller's efforts and creates a more seamless sale process. Successfully brokered sales are based on solid relationships between brokers and sellers as well as the strict execution of a common selling strategy.

Laying the Groundwork

In addition to improving profitability and market share, planning the sale of your business will require you to think about how you will present your company to buyers. Professional business brokers understand buyers and know how to properly communicate an International restaurant to the marketplace. Specifically, brokers can advise you about the preparation of financial statements and other documents buyers expect to see in a premium International restaurant opportunity.

Negotiation Exit Strategy

Negotiations have a way of dragging on forever. Yet eventually many negotiations reach a stage where further discussion is pointless. In an International restaurant sale, a stalled negotiation can be an indication that the deal is dead. At this point in the process, an awareness of negotiation parameters really pays off. If the buyer is unwilling to accept your minimum demands, it's time to end negotiations and move on to the next prospect.
