Selling a Company

 

Selling an Internet Software Design and Services Business

Business-for-sale markets are susceptible to a variety of influences. As you know, the internet software design and services business market has been exceptionally volatile. Many sellers have exited their companies under less-than-ideal circumstances. Yet it's still possible to achieve personal and professional goals when selling an internet software design and services business during challenging economic times.

Most business sellers are interested in disposing of their businesses as quickly as possible. But that's not how an internet software design and services business sale works.

Most internet software design and services businesses are good business opportunities, a fact that is not going unnoticed by today's discerning buyers.

Benefits of Third-Party Assistance

There are a range of professionals available to guide you through the sale of an internet software design and services business. Brokers can be an important resource for your sale, especially if you are unfamiliar with the business-for-sale marketplace. Other early hires include the professionals you will need to valuate the business, prepare financial statements and navigate legal considerations. The early recruitment of external resources reduces your risk and results in a more predictable final outcome.

Advertising Your Sale

Successful internet software design and services business sales incorporate comprehensive advertising plans. However, confidentiality and other concerns can present challenges, even for sales professionals. If sale information leaks out, competitors can use it to steal customers and circulate negative messages about your business throughout the industry. Business brokers are skilled at publicizing internet software design and services business sales while maintaining the confidentiality that is critical to your business.

Seller Financing

Capital is hard to come by these days. Banks and other lending institutions aren't eager to lend to unproven and undercapitalized internet software design and services business buyers regardless of the business's potential. Rather than abandon their plans entirely, many buyers are pursuing finance concessions from sellers. Although 100% seller financing isn't recommended, sellers are financing up to 70% of the sale price to close deals.
