Selling a Company

 

Selling an Orthodontics Dentists Business

No one said selling your business in a depressed economy would be easy. But selling your orthodontics dentists business doesn't have to be as daunting as it sounds.

The business-for-sale market is just as frustrating for buyers as it is for sellers these days. Although there are plenty of entrepreneurs who want to buy an orthodontics dentists business, capital restrictions are holding them back.

Yet what many sellers don't appreciate is that a down economy can present the perfect opportunity to sell a orthodontics dentists business.

Negotiation Teams

Business sellers are sometimes surprised to find themselves in the position of negotiator-in-chief. When you sell your orthodontics dentists business, your business brokers may or may not be willing to conduct negotiations for you. Negotiation is a chess game, best played with the resources and backend support of a negotiation team. A negotiation team comprised of trusted advisors and senior business leaders is essential in helping you devise a winning negotiation strategy. More importantly, a negotiation team can serve as a sounding board -- an objective presence that prohibits your personal emotions from clouding your judgment or sabotaging your efforts to negotiate a successful deal.

Leveraging External Resources

Rarely, if ever, do owners sell an orthodontics dentists business without outside assistance. Brokers can be an important resource for your sale, especially if you are unfamiliar with the business-for-sale marketplace. Additionally, you may want to hire professionals for legal, valuation and other functions before you put your business on the market. The early recruitment of external resources reduces your risk and results in a more predictable final outcome.

What About Market Conditions?

No one plans to sell an orthodontics dentists business in a down economy. Although the economy is gaining steam, recovery is slow and entrepreneurs are holding their cards close to their vests. However, many business sellers don't realize that a full economic rebound can have devastating consequences, particularly if sellers who have waited to list their businesses suddenly create a glut in the business-for-sale marketplace. So what's our point? The economy isn't the most important factor in the sale of your business. Instead, you should be focusing on making your orthodontics dentists business as attractive as possible so to buyers right now.
