Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?
There are all types of reasons people decide to sell operating businesses. Nonetheless, the genuine factor vs the one they tell you may be 2 completely different things. As an example, they might claim "I have way too many other responsibilities" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these factors stand. However, for some, these may just be excuses to try to hide the reality of altering demographics, increased competitors, recent decrease in profits, or an array of other factors. This is why it is very crucial that you not depend totally on a seller's word, yet instead, make use of the vendor's answer together with your overall due diligence. This will paint a more practical picture of the business's existing situation.
Existing Debts and Future Obligations
If the current business is in debt, which lots of companies are, then you will need to consider this when valuating/preparing your deal. Lots of companies borrow money so as to cover points like supplies, payroll, accounts payable, etc. Bear in mind that occasionally this can mean that profit margins are too tight. Many organisations come under a revolving door of taking loans 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 tools or the structure where the business resides. The business may have existing agreements with vendors that should be met or may cause fines if terminated early.
Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics
Just how do operating businesses in the area bring in new consumers? Often times, operating businesses have repeat customers, which develop the core of their everyday revenues. Certain elements such as new competition growing up around the location, road building, and also staff turn over can affect repeat customers and also adversely affect future earnings. One vital thing to consider is the location of the business. Is it in an extremely trafficked shopping center, or is it concealed from the highway? Undoubtedly, the more people that see the business on a regular basis, the better the chance to construct a returning consumer base. A last idea is the general area demographics. Is the business situated in a largely inhabited city, or is it located on the outside border of town? Just how might the neighborhood median household income impact future revenue prospects?
