Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?

There are all kinds of reasons why individuals choose to sell operating businesses. Nonetheless, the true reason vs the one they tell you might be 2 totally different things. As an example, they may say "I have way too many various responsibilities" or "I am retiring". For numerous sellers, these reasons stand. But, for some, these may simply be excuses to attempt to hide the reality of changing demographics, increased competition, recent reduction in profits, or an array of other factors. This is why it is very crucial that you not count completely on a vendor's word, however instead, use the vendor's solution along with your total due diligence. This will paint a much more practical picture of the business's present situation.

Existing Debts and Future Obligations

If the existing company is in debt, which many businesses are, then you will need to consider this when valuating/preparing your offer. Lots of operating businesses finance loans in order to cover points like stock, payroll, accounts payable, etc. Keep in mind that in some cases this can mean that earnings margins are too small. Lots of businesses fall under a revolving door of taking on debt as a way to pay back other loans. Along with debts, there may also be future commitments to consider. There may be an outstanding lease on equipment or the building where the business resides. The business might have existing contracts with vendors that have to be fulfilled or may cause penalties if terminated early.

Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics

How do companies in the area bring in brand-new customers? Often times, operating businesses have repeat consumers, which develop the core of their everyday profits. Specific aspects such as brand-new competition growing up around the location, road construction, as well as staff turn over can affect repeat consumers and also adversely influence future revenues. 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 main road? Undoubtedly, the more people that see the business often, the higher the opportunity to construct a returning consumer base. A final thought is the general area demographics. Is the business situated in a densely populated city, or is it located on the edge of town? How might the local average family income effect future income prospects?
