This is why it is extremely essential that you not depend entirely on a seller's word, yet instead, use the vendor's response combined with your total due diligence. This will repaint a much more practical image of the business's present situation.

Existing Debts and Future Obligations

If the existing company is in debt, which many companies are, then you will certainly need to consider this when valuating/preparing your offer. Numerous businesses take out loans in order to cover items such as inventory, payroll, accounts payable, so on and so forth. Keep in mind that sometimes this can indicate that revenue margins are too small. Numerous companies come under a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back other loans. Along with debts, there may also be future obligations to think about. There may be an outstanding lease on equipment or the structure where the business resides. The business might have existing agreements with vendors that should be met or might lead to charges if terminated early.
