But also, for some, these might simply be excuses to try to conceal the reality of changing demographics, increased competitors, current reduction in profits, or a range of various other reasons. This is why it is extremely vital that you not depend totally on a vendor's word, but instead, utilize the vendor's answer together with your general due diligence. This will repaint a much more realistic picture of the business's existing situation.

Existing Debts and Future Obligations
