Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?
There are all sorts of reasons why individuals resolve to sell businesses. However, the true factor vs the one they say to you may be 2 completely different things. For instance, they may say "I have too many other commitments" or "I am retiring". For lots of sellers, these reasons are valid. But, for some, these might simply be reasons to attempt to conceal the reality of altering demographics, increased competitors, recent reduction in earnings, or a variety of other reasons. This is why it is extremely vital that you not rely totally on a seller's word, yet rather, utilize the seller's answer together with your total due diligence. This will repaint a much more reasonable image of the business's current situation.
Existing Debts and Future Obligations
If the existing company is in debt, which numerous businesses are, then you will need to consider this when valuating/preparing your offer. Lots of operating businesses borrow money with the purpose of covering things like inventory, payroll, accounts payable, etc. Bear in mind that in some cases this can indicate that earnings margins are too small. Numerous companies fall into a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back other loans. In addition to 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 may have existing agreements with suppliers that should be fulfilled or may lead to charges if terminated early.
Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics
Just how do operating businesses in the area bring in new clients? Most times, companies have repeat consumers, which form the core of their day-to-day revenues. Particular factors such as new competitors sprouting up around the area, roadway building and construction, as well as staff turn over can affect repeat clients as well as negatively influence future incomes. One important point to take into consideration is the area of the business. Is it in a highly trafficked shopping mall, or is it hidden from the main road? Obviously, the more people that see the business regularly, the better the opportunity to construct a returning customer base. A final thought is the basic location demographics. Is the business placed in a largely inhabited city, or is it located on the edge of town? How might the regional median household earnings impact future income potential?
