Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?
There are all sorts of reasons individuals resolve to sell companies. Nevertheless, the true factor vs the one they tell you might be 2 absolutely different things. As an example, they may say "I have too many various commitments" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these factors are valid. However, for some, these may just be excuses to try to hide the reality of altering demographics, increased competition, current reduction in incomes, or a variety of other reasons. This is why it is very important that you not count totally on a vendor's word, yet rather, use the vendor's response in conjunction with your general due diligence. This will paint a more sensible picture of the business's present circumstance.
