Selling Your Small Business? What Makes a Good Buyer?

April 20, 2010 by Stuart Gross

Anyone who has ever sold a business knows that attracting interested and qualified buyers is the name of the game. When a buyer has inquired about your business for sale they will have questions about the business and how it runs. You or your broker should answer those questions and interview the buyer. You want a buyer who is genuinely interested in this business, one who has the skills necessary to run the business, and the financial wherewithal to make this purchase. Your questions and the buyer’s answers must resolve these issues. If you do not know about your buyer you are likely to waste a lot of time and take your eye off of running your business and finding the right buyer. There are many nightmares that the wrong buyer can cause:

Seven factors that will affect the sale of your business

April 05, 2010 by Stuart Gross

When you are selling your business you should know that the average business takes 6 to 9 months to sell. There are several factors that affect the salability of your business. Revenue and profitability A major factor affecting the salability and price of a business is its revenue and profitability (P&L). There is little you can do to change those facts but the presentation and explanation of unusual activity is important to instill confidence in a buyer. The P&L usually has the most direct effect on sales price. Potential and Scalability Most buyers want to buy a business that they can grow and make better. It is good to know what could be done to grow the business in new ways. For example you may not have an effective website or the business could be open more hours, or it is reasonably easy to expand to larger facilities or additional locations. Be prepared to provide some growth strategy for the potential buyer.

Selling a business in the media, entertainment, film and TV industries?

March 16, 2010 by Stuart Gross

The first thing to consider when deciding to sell your business in media and entertainment (or any of the many creative business sectors including advertising, graphic, communications, branding and even consulting)  is transferability. And it’s not just the creative skills that may need to be transferred, it is also the relationships that mean business to your business.  Can a new buyer learn to do what you do and maintain and attract business? If you conclude that your business is transferable you need to have solutions to some key issues. What kind of buyer is capable of taking over this business? Where will I find this buyer? Will my key people stay on? How will I handle my clients in transition? How long should I stay on to make an effective transfer? Should I work with a broker? How do I make a deal? How will the buyer finance the acquisition? Am I really ready to move on from my business?
