Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?
There are all kinds of reasons why people decide to sell companies. Nevertheless, the real 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 commitments" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these reasons stand. But also, for some, these might just be reasons to attempt to hide the reality of altering demographics, increased competitors, current reduction in profits, or an array of other reasons. This is why it is really important that you not rely completely on a vendor's word, yet rather, make use of the vendor's answer along with your general due diligence. This will paint a more reasonable picture of the business's present 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 deal. Lots of businesses finance loans with the purpose of covering things like inventory, payroll, accounts payable, and so on. Keep in mind that in some cases this can mean that earnings margins are too small. Numerous businesses fall into a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back other loans. Along with debts, there may also be future obligations to consider. There may be an outstanding lease on equipment or the building where the business resides. The business may have existing contracts with suppliers that must be fulfilled or may lead to fines if canceled early.
Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics
How do companies in the area bring in new consumers? Many times, businesses have repeat clients, which create the core of their everyday revenues. Particular variables such as new competition sprouting up around the location, road building and construction, and staff turn over can affect repeat customers as well as adversely impact future revenues. One important point to take into consideration is the location of the business. Is it in a very trafficked shopping mall, or is it hidden from the main road? Certainly, the more people that see the business on a regular basis, the greater the possibility to develop a returning consumer base. A final idea is the basic area demographics. Is the business placed in a densely inhabited city, or is it situated on the outside border of town? How might the regional median household earnings effect future revenue potential?
