Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?

There are all types of reasons why individuals choose to sell businesses. However, the real reason vs the one they tell you might be 2 completely different things. For instance, they might say "I have a lot of other responsibilities" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these reasons are valid. But also, for some, these may simply be excuses to attempt to hide the reality of changing demographics, increased competitors, current decrease in earnings, or a variety of various other factors. This is why it is extremely essential that you not count entirely on a seller's word, yet instead, use the seller's response along with your total due diligence. This will paint a more realistic image of the business's existing scenario.

Existing Debts and Future Obligations

If the current business is in debt, which many companies are, then you will have reason to consider this when valuating/preparing your deal. Lots of companies finance loans in order to cover points such as inventory, payroll, accounts payable, so on and so forth. Bear in mind that in some cases this can imply that earnings margins are too tight. Many companies fall into a revolving door of taking on debt as a way to pay back various other loans. Along with debts, there may also be future obligations to take into consideration. There might be an outstanding lease on tools or the building where the business resides. The business might have existing agreements with suppliers that must be fulfilled or might result in fines if terminated early.

Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics

Just how do businesses in the area bring in new customers? Often times, companies have repeat clients, which form the core of their daily earnings. Specific factors such as brand-new competitors growing up around the location, roadway building, as well as personnel turnover can impact repeat customers as well as adversely affect future profits. One essential thing to consider is the placement of the business. Is it in a highly trafficked shopping center, or is it hidden from the highway? Undoubtedly, the more people that see the business often, the greater the chance to build a returning customer base. A last idea is the general location demographics. Is the business placed in a largely inhabited city, or is it located on the outskirts of town? Just how might the regional median home income impact future earnings prospects?
