Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?
There are all kinds of reasons individuals decide to sell companies. Nevertheless, the true factor vs the one they tell you may be 2 completely different things. For instance, they may state "I have a lot of various obligations" or "I am retiring". For lots of sellers, these factors are valid. But also, for some, these may simply be reasons to try to conceal the reality of changing demographics, increased competition, recent decrease in revenues, or a variety of various other reasons. This is why it is very vital that you not count completely on a seller's word, yet rather, utilize the seller's solution in conjunction with your general due diligence. This will paint a much more sensible image of the business's present scenario.
Existing Debts and Future Obligations
If the current business is in debt, which numerous businesses are, then you will certainly need to consider this when valuating/preparing your deal. Lots of companies take out loans in order to cover things like inventory, payroll, accounts payable, so on and so forth. Remember that sometimes this can suggest that profit margins are too thin. Numerous businesses come under a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back various other loans. Along with debts, there may additionally be future obligations to consider. There may be an outstanding lease on equipment or the structure where the business resides. The business might have existing agreements with suppliers that need to be met or may result in charges if terminated early.
Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics
Just how do companies in the area attract new customers? Many times, operating businesses have repeat clients, which form the core of their day-to-day revenues. Certain aspects such as new competitors growing up around the area, roadway construction, and also personnel turnover can affect repeat clients and negatively affect future profits. One important thing to think about is the location of the business. Is it in a highly trafficked shopping mall, or is it concealed from the main road? Undoubtedly, the more people that see the business regularly, the higher the opportunity to develop a returning client base. A last idea is the general location demographics. Is the business situated in a densely populated city, or is it located on the outside border of town? How might the local mean household income effect future earnings potential?
