Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?

There are all types of reasons people decide to sell operating businesses. Nevertheless, the genuine factor vs the one they say to you might be 2 totally different things. For instance, they may say "I have a lot of other commitments" or "I am retiring". For numerous sellers, these reasons are valid. But also, for some, these may simply be reasons to try to hide the reality of changing demographics, increased competition, recent reduction in profits, or an array of other factors. This is why it is really important that you not rely completely on a vendor's word, yet instead, utilize the seller's response in conjunction with your overall due diligence. This will paint a more practical picture of the business's existing scenario.

Existing Debts and Future Obligations

If the existing entity is in debt, which lots of businesses are, then you will have reason to consider this when valuating/preparing your deal. Many businesses finance loans so as to cover points like supplies, payroll, accounts payable, so on and so forth. Keep in mind that in some cases this can mean that profit margins are too tight. Lots of companies fall into a revolving door of taking on debt as a way to pay back other loans. In addition to debts, there may additionally be future obligations to take into consideration. There might be an outstanding lease on equipment or the building where the business resides. The business might have existing contracts with suppliers that should be satisfied or might cause fines if terminated early.

Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics

How do businesses in the area draw in brand-new consumers? Often times, companies have repeat consumers, which form the core of their day-to-day profits. Particular elements such as new competitors growing up around the location, road building and construction, as well as personnel turnover can influence repeat customers as well as adversely influence future profits. One crucial point to consider is the area of the business. Is it in an extremely trafficked shopping mall, or is it concealed from the main road? Undoubtedly, the more people that see the business often, the higher the opportunity to develop a returning consumer base. A last thought is the general location demographics. Is the business situated in a largely inhabited city, or is it located on the edge of town? Just how might the local typical household income influence future earnings prospects?
