Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?

There are all sorts of reasons individuals resolve to sell companies. However, the true reason vs the one they tell you may be 2 totally different things. As an example, they might claim "I have a lot of other obligations" or "I am retiring". For lots of sellers, these factors stand. However, for some, these may simply be excuses to attempt to hide the reality of changing demographics, increased competition, current reduction in profits, or an array of various other factors. This is why it is very crucial that you not rely completely on a seller's word, however instead, utilize the seller's solution together with your general due diligence. This will paint a more practical image of the business's existing situation.

Existing Debts and Future Obligations

If the existing entity is in debt, which numerous companies are, then you will certainly need to consider this when valuating/preparing your deal. Lots of companies finance loans in order to cover items such as supplies, payroll, accounts payable, etc. Remember that occasionally this can mean that earnings margins are too small. Lots of businesses fall under 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 think about. There may be an outstanding lease on tools or the building where the business resides. The business may have existing agreements with suppliers that should be met or may result in charges if terminated early.

Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics

Just how do businesses in the area attract new customers? Often times, companies have repeat customers, which develop the core of their everyday profits. Certain factors such as brand-new competition sprouting up around the area, roadway construction, and employee turnover can impact repeat consumers and adversely affect future incomes. One crucial point to think about is the area of the business. Is it in an extremely trafficked shopping mall, or is it hidden from the highway? Obviously, the more individuals that see the business regularly, the better the opportunity to construct a returning customer base. A last idea is the general area demographics. Is the business situated in a largely populated city, or is it located on the edge of town? Exactly how might the neighborhood mean household earnings influence future income potential?
