Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?
There are all kinds of reasons why individuals decide to sell businesses. However, the real reason and the one they say to you may be 2 totally different things. For instance, they may say "I have a lot of other obligations" or "I am retiring". For lots of sellers, these factors are valid. But, for some, these may simply be justifications to try to conceal the reality of changing demographics, increased competitors, current reduction in incomes, or a variety of other factors. This is why it is really important that you not count completely on a vendor's word, but instead, use the seller's answer in conjunction with your general due diligence. This will repaint a more practical image of the business's current scenario.
Existing Debts and Future Obligations
If the current business is in debt, which lots of businesses are, then you will certainly have reason to consider this when valuating/preparing your deal. Many operating businesses borrow money so as to cover items like stock, payroll, accounts payable, and so on. Remember that in some cases this can indicate that earnings margins are too tight. Lots of businesses fall into a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back various other loans. Along with debts, there may additionally be future obligations to think about. There might be an outstanding lease on tools or the building where the business resides. The business may have existing contracts with vendors that need to be fulfilled or might result in penalties if canceled early.
Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics
How do operating businesses in the location draw in new customers? Often times, businesses have repeat customers, which develop the core of their everyday profits. Specific aspects such as new competition sprouting up around the area, road construction, and employee turn over can impact repeat clients as well as negatively influence future profits. One essential thing to consider is the placement of the business. Is it in a highly trafficked shopping center, or is it concealed from the main road? Undoubtedly, the more individuals that see the business often, the greater the chance to build a returning customer base. A final idea is the general area demographics. Is the business located in a largely inhabited city, or is it located on the edge of town? How might the local median house income impact future revenue prospects?
