Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?

As an example, they may state "I have a lot of various commitments" or "I am retiring". For lots of sellers, these reasons stand.

This will repaint a much more sensible image of the business's current situation.
Existing Debts and Future Obligations
If the current company is in debt, which lots of companies are, then you will need to consider this when valuating/preparing your offer. Many operating businesses borrow money so as to cover items such as stock, payroll, accounts payable, and so on. Bear in mind that sometimes this can imply that earnings margins are too small. Many companies come under a revolving door of taking on debt as a way to pay back other loans. In addition to debts, there may also be future commitments to take into consideration. There might be an outstanding lease on equipment or the building where the business resides. The business might have existing contracts with vendors that have to be fulfilled or might result in penalties if terminated early.
