Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?
There are all types of reasons why people decide to sell operating businesses. Nevertheless, the true reason and the one they tell you might be 2 completely different things. As an example, they might say "I have too many various commitments" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these reasons are valid. However, for some, these may simply be justifications to try to conceal the reality of changing demographics, increased competitors, recent reduction in earnings, or an array of various other reasons. This is why it is very important that you not rely absolutely on a vendor's word, but rather, use the seller's answer together with your overall due diligence. This will paint a more sensible picture of the business's present circumstance.
Existing Debts and Future Obligations
If the current entity is in debt, which many businesses are, then you will need to consider this when valuating/preparing your offer. Lots of businesses finance loans so as to cover things like inventory, payroll, accounts payable, etc. Remember that sometimes this can imply that profit margins are too thin. Many companies fall under a revolving door of taking on debt as a way to pay back other loans. Along with debts, there may additionally be future commitments to consider. There might be an outstanding lease on tools or the structure where the business resides. The business might have existing contracts with vendors that must be satisfied or might cause fines if terminated early.
Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics
Just how do companies in the area attract new customers? Most times, companies have repeat customers, which form the core of their everyday revenues. Specific factors such as new competitors sprouting up around the location, road building and construction, as well as staff turn over can influence repeat clients and adversely influence future profits. One vital point to consider is the placement of the business. Is it in a highly trafficked shopping mall, or is it hidden from the highway? Obviously, the more individuals that see the business on a regular basis, the greater the opportunity to develop a returning customer base. A final idea is the general area demographics. Is the business located in a densely inhabited city, or is it situated on the outskirts of town? Exactly how might the neighborhood median family earnings effect future revenue prospects?
