Selling a business is one of the greatest challenges and time consuming processes a business owner will experience. Obtaining the right offers and terms from multiple buyers is more difficult.
The correct alignment, strategic positioning and the right buyers increase value and the number of offers a seller will receive. Choosing the wrong team or process results in lost time, less buyers, diminished value and the potential a seller will receive an acceptable offer for a good company.
When selling a business, the Right Team is critical.
It requires professionals that can effectively identify and present all aspects of the company’s value to the buyer prospects. In addition, it requires an effective team utilizing a strategic sale process that have the experience, ability and contacts to create a market with the right buyers to negotiate and secure the best value. On average a business sale can require from 750 to 1,500 man hours to complete successfully.
