Selling a Company

 

Selling an Irrigation, Fertilizing, and Spraying Equipment Business

You've heard the naysayers - now isn't the time to sell a irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment business. But what they don't know is that many entrepreneurs see irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment businesses as a smart business investment.

These days, the small and medium-sized business market is more confusing than ever before. Although there are plenty of entrepreneurs who want to buy an irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment business, capital restrictions are holding them back.

If your exit strategy involves selling an irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment business now, sellers need to make a strong case for buyers to purchase at or near the asking price.

Economic Considerations

When you sell an irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment business, there are a number of variables you need to consider. Interest rates, spending, inflation, and other variables directly influence how long your irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment business will be on the market as well as its sales price. But at Gaebler, we advise our business partners to look beyond simple economic data when determining whether it's the right time to sell an irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment business. If you don't believe your irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment business would sell for top dollar right now, what can you do to make it more attractive to the marketplace? Increase profitability? Build brand visibility?. When it comes to selling an irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment business, successful sales sales often boil down to the business itself - not the economy.

Tips for Seller Financing

Capital is hard to come by these days. Financial institutions have tightened up their lending policies, making it difficult for inexperienced and undercapitalized entrepreneurs to buy irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment businesses. As a result, buyers expect sellers to finance a significant portion of the sale. Although 100% seller financing isn't recommended, sellers are financing up to 70% of the sale price to close deals.

How to Choose a Business Broker

Good business brokers inevitably produce better business sales. In the irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment business industry, experience is a must-have characteristic for qualified brokerage. The best brokers should also come with a list of references, a demonstrable track record and a proven plan for selling irrigation, fertilizing, and spraying equipment businesses.
