Selecting the Best Intermediary to Guide you through the Sale of your Business

In today’s fast-paced global economy, it’s easier than ever to buy, grow, and sell businesses for profit.


Introduction

In today’s fast-paced global economy, it’s easier than ever to buy, grow, and sell businesses for profit. Entrepreneurs now have access to resources like Amazon’s FBA program and Shopify’s back-end sales platform, allowing them to achieve rapid, sustainable growth in a much shorter period than was previously thought possible.
Studies also suggest that businesses are being sold at a much higher rate when compared to historical data. Leading online business-for-sale marketplace BizBuySell published their annual Insight Report in Q2 2019. They found that reported transaction rates indicated a healthy upward trend, with 2017 and 2018 setting record highs for the total number of small business transactions despite slight decreases in Q4 of both years.

Take the Leap

You’ve built your brand up from nothing over countless late nights and weekends, your products or services are popular with customers, and the profits are rolling in. Now you’re faced with two choices: take your company to the next level or cash out and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

You had a vision when you first started your business, and you undoubtedly have a vision for your personal and professional future. Perhaps that future involves starting a new venture, or maybe you’re ready to retire and see the world. Whatever your long-term goals may be, if selling your business is first step towards achieving them, timing is everything.

Pull the Ripcord

Once you’ve decided to sell your business, you need to find the right intermediary to represent you in the transaction. A world-class intermediary can market your business and find a counterparty while you continue to oversee day-to-day operations of the company, ensuring that revenue continues to flow until a new owner assumes control.

Stick the Landing

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to selling a business and the process should be dictated by your goals as the seller. The best intermediary will create superior offering materials, get the deal in front of the most qualified counterparties, and guide the buyers through the closing process for a smooth and seamless transaction. Most importantly, they will ensure that you are 100% satisfied when the deal is done and that all your important goals are realized. After all, you’ve built something great and you deserve to walk away knowing that you got the absolute best value for your business.

What's the Difference?

At 13,000 feet, who would you trust to help you reach solid ground, an instructor who remains in the plane while you jump alone or a skydiving coach who jumps with you, guiding you to safety?

Your business is one of the most valuable assets you will ever sell, so it’s important to select the absolute best intermediary to represent you in the transaction. Business Brokers are capable of acting as intermediaries in the sale of a business, but their goal is to generate sales volume through fast, lower-value transactions. While sometimes effective, this strategy rarely achieves optimal results, often failing to maximize your hard work in a sale and leaving a lot of money on the table.

They are personally involved in each step of the sales process, from assessing and marketing your business to closing the deal and earning you the highest value.
