Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?

There are all kinds of reasons why people decide to sell businesses. However, the real factor and the one they tell you may be 2 totally different things. For instance, they may say "I have a lot of various obligations" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these reasons stand. But also, for some, these may simply be justifications to try to conceal the reality of altering demographics, increased competition, current decrease in earnings, or a variety of other reasons. This is why it is extremely crucial that you not rely totally on a vendor's word, yet instead, use the seller's response combined with your general due diligence. This will repaint a much more practical picture of the business's current situation.

Existing Debts and Future Obligations

If the current company is in debt, which lots of companies are, then you will certainly need to consider this when valuating/preparing your deal. Many operating businesses take out loans in order to cover items such as stock, payroll, accounts payable, etc. Keep in mind that sometimes this can mean that revenue margins are too tight. Numerous companies fall under a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back other loans. In addition to debts, there may also be future commitments to think about. There may be an outstanding lease on equipment or the structure where the business resides. The business might have existing agreements with vendors that must be fulfilled or may lead to penalties if terminated early.

Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics

Exactly how do operating businesses in the area bring in brand-new customers? Often times, operating businesses have repeat consumers, which create the core of their everyday earnings. Specific elements such as new competitors sprouting up around the location, road building, and also employee turn over can influence repeat customers as well as negatively influence future incomes. One important point to consider is the placement of the business. Is it in a highly trafficked shopping center, or is it hidden from the highway? Clearly, the more people that see the business often, the greater the possibility to construct a returning customer base. A final idea is the basic location demographics. Is the business located in a largely populated city, or is it situated on the outskirts of town? Exactly how might the local mean home earnings influence future earnings prospects?
