Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?

There are all types of reasons individuals resolve to sell companies. Nevertheless, the real factor vs the one they tell you may be 2 completely different things. As an example, they may claim "I have too many various responsibilities" or "I am retiring". For numerous sellers, these reasons are valid. But also, for some, these may just be justifications to try to conceal the reality of changing demographics, increased competition, recent reduction in earnings, or an array of various other factors. This is why it is really important that you not depend completely on a vendor's word, yet instead, use the vendor's answer combined with your overall due diligence. This will paint a much more realistic image of the business's existing scenario.

Existing Debts and Future Obligations

If the existing business is in debt, which lots of companies are, then you will certainly have reason to consider this when valuating/preparing your deal. Numerous businesses borrow money in order to cover things such as supplies, payroll, accounts payable, etc. Remember that in some cases this can mean that profit margins are too small. Lots of businesses 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 take into consideration. There may be an outstanding lease on equipment or the building where the business resides. The business may have existing contracts with suppliers that should be met or may lead to charges if canceled early.

Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics

Just how do companies in the location draw in brand-new customers? Often times, businesses have repeat customers, which create the core of their day-to-day revenues. Particular elements such as brand-new competitors sprouting up around the location, road building and construction, and also employee turnover can impact repeat customers and also adversely influence future profits. One vital point to take into consideration is the location of the business. Is it in a highly trafficked shopping mall, or is it concealed from the main road? Certainly, the more individuals that see the business often, the greater the chance to build a returning client base. A last thought is the general location demographics. Is the business situated in a largely populated city, or is it situated on the outskirts of town? Exactly how might the regional typical household earnings impact future earnings potential?
