Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?
There are all sorts of reasons people choose to sell companies. Nonetheless, the true factor vs the one they tell you might be 2 absolutely different things. For instance, they might claim "I have a lot of various commitments" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these factors stand. But also, for some, these may just be justifications to attempt to hide the reality of altering demographics, increased competitors, recent reduction in earnings, or a variety of other factors. This is why it is extremely crucial that you not count absolutely on a seller's word, however instead, use the seller's response along with your general due diligence.
