Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?
There are all kinds of reasons why individuals resolve to sell companies. However, the real factor vs the one they tell you might be 2 completely different things. As an example, they might state "I have too many other commitments" or "I am retiring". For lots of sellers, these factors are valid. But, for some, these may just be justifications to try to hide the reality of changing demographics, increased competition, current reduction in earnings, or an array of various other reasons. This is why it is extremely vital that you not rely entirely on a seller's word, but instead, make use of the vendor's solution combined with your general due diligence. This will paint a more reasonable image of the business's current scenario.
Existing Debts and Future Obligations
If the existing entity is in debt, which numerous companies are, then you will have reason to consider this when valuating/preparing your offer. Lots of operating businesses take out loans in order to cover points like inventory, payroll, accounts payable, and so on. Bear in mind that occasionally this can imply that profit margins are too thin. Lots of organisations fall into a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back other loans. Along with debts, there may also be future obligations to consider. There might be an outstanding lease on equipment or the building where the business resides. The business may have existing agreements with vendors that need to be met or may lead to charges if canceled early.
Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics
How do companies in the area draw in new customers? Many times, operating businesses have repeat consumers, which form the core of their daily earnings. Certain factors such as brand-new competition growing up around the area, road construction, and also personnel turn over can influence repeat consumers as well as negatively influence future profits. One important point to take into consideration is the area of the business. Is it in a highly trafficked shopping center, or is it hidden from the main road? Clearly, the more people that see the business on a regular basis, the better the opportunity to construct a returning customer base. A final idea is the basic location demographics. Is the business situated in a densely populated city, or is it situated on the outside border of town? How might the regional average family income impact future earnings prospects?
