Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?

As an example, they might claim "I have way too many other responsibilities" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these factors stand. But also, for some, these may simply be reasons to try to conceal the reality of transforming demographics, increased competitors, recent decrease in revenues, or a range of other factors. This is why it is very vital that you not depend entirely on a vendor's word, yet rather, use the seller's solution along with your general due diligence.
