Buyer Registration Form

Experienced Buyer? Log in to your existing account

Thank you in advance for taking the time to register as a buyer with BizEx. In addition to the confidentiality agreement and basic contact information, we also require you to fill out a Buyer Profile. This will help us identify additional businesses you might be interested in, and help pre-qualify you for SBA/Seller financing.

If you are new to the business buying process, please be patient while filling out the buyer profile. Seller's are very concerned about confidentiality, above and beyond the protection provided by the Confidentiality Agreement. If their employees find out, or some of their key customers or clients, it could have a significant impact on their business continuity. Which is why they want to limit the disclosure of information to qualified buyers only. Seller's sometimes give us discretion, but often we are required to send them a copy of your profile before we can give access to confidential information on their business. So please fill out as many fields as you can. Business background, net worth and down payment fields are probably the most looked at fields. The Buyer Profile will also help Sellers determine whether you are someone to whom they would be willing to finance the sale of their business, which is the most common form of financing available for small business acquisitions.

Experienced buyers will be happy to know that you only have to register with us once. We can use these same forms for any business you might be interested in.

Non-Disclosure Agreeement

Acceptance of NDA is required before we can provide business details

The undersigned, individually and on behalf of any affiliated prospective buyer, acknowledges being first introduced to the business identified herein by Business Brokerage Technologies, Inc., dba BizEx ("Broker"). The undersigned will be bound to this agreement to any business it requests information on through the BizEx website or any business the broker provides Buyer information on ("Business"). Such information shall be provided to the undersigned for the sole purpose of entering into discussions with Seller of said Business ("Seller") for the possible purchase by the undersigned of all or part of the stock or assets of the Business ("Purpose"). As used herein, the term Buyer ("Buyer") applies to the undersigned and any partnership, corporation, individual, or other entity with which the undersigned is affiliated. The undersigned agrees as follows:

  1. NON-DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION: The Buyer acknowledges that Seller desires to maintain the confidentiality of the information disclosed and agrees with Broker not to disclose or permit access to any Confidential Information without the prior written consent of Seller, to anyone other than Buyer's employees, legal counsel, accountants, lenders or other agents or advisors to whom disclosure or access is necessary for Buyer to evaluate the Business. Disclosure of Confidential Information shall be made to these parties only in connection with the potential acquisition of the Business, and then only if these parties understand and agree to maintain the confidentiality of such Confidential Information. The undersigned shall protect and safeguard the confidentiality of all Confidential Information with at least the same degree of care as the Recipient would protect its own confidential information, but in no event with less than a commercially reasonable degree of care; not use the Confidential Information, or permit it to be accessed or used, for any purpose other than the Purpose, including without limitation, to reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile or design around confidential intellectual property; not disclose any such Confidential Information to any person or entity, except to the Recipient's Representatives who need to know the Confidential Information in relation to the Purpose and are informed of the obligations hereunder and agree to abide by the same. The undersigned shall be responsible for any breach of this Agreement by these parties, and neither Buyer nor these parties shall use or permit the use of Confidential Information in any manner whatsoever, except as may be required for Buyer to evaluate the Business or as may be required by legal process. Recipient will promptly notify the Seller of any unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information or other breaches of this Agreement.
  2. DEFINITION OF "CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION": The term "Confidential Information" shall mean all information, including the fact that the Business is for sale, all financial, production, marketing and pricing information, business methods, business manuals, manufacturing procedures, correspondence, processes, data, contracts, customer lists, employee lists, source and object code, programs, drawings, unpatented inventions, ideas, methods, discoveries, trade secrets, unpublished patent applications and other confidential intellectual property and any other information whether written, oral or otherwise made know to Buyer: (a) from any inspection, examination, or other review of the books, records, assets, liabilities, processes, or production methods of Seller; (b) from communication with Seller or its directors, officers, employees, agents, suppliers, customers or representatives; (c) during visits to Seller's premises, or (d) through disclosure or discovery in any other manner.
  3. EXCLUSIONS FROM CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. Except as required by applicable federal, state or local law or regulation, the term "Confidential Information" as used in this Agreement shall not include information that: (a) at the time of disclosure is, or thereafter becomes, generally available to and known by the public other than as a result of, directly or indirectly, any act or omission by the Buyer; (b) at the time of disclosure is, or thereafter becomes, available to the Buyer on a non-confidential basis from a third-party source, provided that such third party is not and was not prohibited from disclosing such Confidential Information to the Buyer by any contractual obligation; (c) was known by or in the possession of the Buyer, as established by documentary evidence, prior to being disclosed by or on behalf of the Seller pursuant to this Agreement; (d) was or is independently developed by the Buyer, as established by documentary evidence, without reference to Confidential Information; or (e) is Residual Information. "Residual Information" means the ideas, know-how and techniques that would be retained in the unaided memory of an ordinary person skilled in the art, not intent on appropriating the proprietary information of the Seller, as a result of such person's access to, use, review, evaluation, or testing of the Confidential Information of the Seller for the purposes described herein. A person's memory is unaided if the person has not intentionally memorized the Confidential Information for the purpose of retaining and subsequently using or disclosing it. Nothing herein shall be deemed to grant to the Buyer a license under the Seller's intellectual property rights.
  4. REQUIRED DISCLOSURE. Any Disclosure by the Buyer of any of the Seller's Confidential Information pursuant to applicable federal, state or local law, regulation or a valid order issued by a court or governmental agency of competent jurisdiction (a "Legal Order") shall be subject to the terms of this Section. Prior to making any such disclosure, the Buyer shall make commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Seller with: (a) prompt written notice of such requirement so that the Seller may seek a protective order or other remedy; and (b) reasonable assistance in opposing such disclosure or seeking a protective order or other limitations on disclosure. If, after providing such notice and assistance as required herein, the Buyer remains subject to a Legal Order to disclose any Confidential Information, the Buyer (or its Representatives or other persons to whom such Legal Order is directed) shall disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information which, on the advice of the Buyer's legal counsel, such Legal Order specifically requires.
  5. RETURN OR DESTRUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. If the Buyer does not purchase the Business, Buyer, at the close of negotiations or upon Seller's request, whichever is soonest, shall promptly return to the Seller all copies, whether in written, electronic or other form or media, of the Seller's Confidential Information, or destroy all such copies and confirm the same in writing to the Seller (at Broker's option); and will not retain any copy, reproduction, or record thereof.
  6. NO TRANSFER OF RIGHTS, TITLE OR INTEREST. The Seller hereby retains its entire right, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to all Confidential Information.
  7. NO OTHER OBLIGATION. The Parties agree that this Agreement does not require or compel the Seller to disclose any Confidential Information to the Buyer, or obligate any party to enter into a business or contractual relationship. Either party may terminate discussions at any time.
  8. REMEDIES. The Buyer acknowledges and agrees that money damages might not be a sufficient remedy for any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement by the Buyer. Therefore, in addition to all other remedies available at law, the Seller shall be entitled to seek specific performance and injunctive and other equitable relief as a remedy for any such breach or threatened breach, and the Buyer hereby waives any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond or the showing of actual monetary damages in connection with such claim.
  9. NON-CIRCUMVENTION AGREEMENT: The Seller has entered into an agreement providing that Seller shall pay a fee to listing broker if during the term of that agreement or up to twenty-four months thereafter, the Business is transferred to a buyer introduced by listing broker or a cooperating broker. Buyer shall conduct all inquiries into and discussions about the Business solely through Broker and shall not directly contact the Seller or the Seller's representatives. Should Buyer purchase all or part of the stock or assets of Business, acquire any interest in, or become affiliated in any capacity with Business without Broker's participation, or in any way interfere with Brokers' right to a fee, Buyer shall be liable to listing broker or cooperating broker for such a fee and any other damages including reasonable attorney's fees and costs.
  10. NON-SOLICITATION. The Buyer will not contact Seller's employees, customers, landlords or suppliers without Seller's consent. For three years, the Buyer will not contact or solicit an employee of the Seller for the purpose of hiring them, solicit the business of any client, customer or licensee of the Seller or outside of the ordinary course of business, directly or indirectly contact or participate in communications with any disclosed companies, entities or persons (including each of their affiliates, parents or subsidiaries). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Buyer shall not be restricted from hiring any employee of who responds to a general solicitation for employment not directed towards the Seller's employees.
  11. DISCLAIMER OF BROKER'S LIABILITY AND BUYER'S RESPONSIBILITY: When Brokers take a business to market they receive information about the business from the seller, usually including but not limited to tax returns, financial statements, equipment lists and facilities leases. Based on information provided by the Seller, brokers often prepare a summary description of the business which may include a cash flow projection, an adjusted income statement, or a seller discretionary cash flow statement. Buyer understands that the Broker does not audit or verify any information given to Broker or make any warranty or representation as to its accuracy or completeness, nor in any way guarantee future business performance. Buyer is solely responsible to examine and investigate the business, its assets, liabilities, financial statements, tax returns, and any other facts which might influence Buyer's decision to purchase or the price Buyer is willing to pay. Any decision by Buyer to purchase the Business shall be based solely on Buyer's own investigation and that of Buyer's legal, tax and other advisors. Broker urges Buyer to obtain independent legal and tax counsel.
  12. FURTHER TERMS: Broker may act as a dual agent representing both Buyer and Seller. Seller is specifically intended to be a beneficiary of the duties and obligations of this Agreement and may prosecute any action at law or in equity necessary to enforce its terms and conditions as though a party hereto. Seller may assign this Agreement to any new ownership of Business. This Agreement can only be modified in writing, signed by both Broker and Buyer. Waiver of any breach of this Agreement shall not be a waiver of any subsequent breach. This Agreement supersedes all prior understandings or agreements between the parties with respect to its subject matter. This Agreement shall be construed under and governed by the laws of the State of California. If Buyer is a corporation, partnership, or other such entity, the undersigned executes this Agreement on behalf of Buyer and warrants that he/she is duly authorized to do so. Buyer acknowledges receipt of a fully completed copy of this Agreement.
