What Is A Business Worth?
There is no easy answer to this question. As brokers, we have experience in seeing what businesses actually sell for, and why. Thus we can provide a considered opinion aimed at developing an appropriate valuation to establish the right market price for a seller. On the buyer side, we can show how the price of a business-for-sale offering stacks up against other similar valuations and offerings. We are accustomed to examining the underlying data that supports (or doesn’t support) an asking price and its accompanying valuation methodology.

Policies And Procedures
From the moment we are engaged by either a buyer or seller, we put in place our strict confidentiality policies and procedures. For example, before releasing sensitive information about a business for sale, we require that a prospective buyer sign a non-disclosure agreement (“NDA”). In addition, we discuss the prospective buyer’s identity with the seller when there is a concern about possible involvement by a competitor who might simply wish to find out more about the seller.

There Comes a Time in Each Transaction When the Microscope Comes Out
For buyers, it is essential to put the proper contingency language into an offer to allow for due diligence. Whether the form of the offer is a Letter of Intent or a Purchase and Sale Agreement, it must specify that the buyer may withdraw without penalty if the business does not meet certain conditions upon inspection.

FINANCING THE DEAL
Certain Elements Must be Present in a Transaction in Order to Bring the Requisite Level of Comfort to a Lender
If three key elements are in place, and the business produces enough cash flow to service the requested loan with some room to spare, and the prospective buyer has sufficient industry-specific experience, then there is a reasonable chance that a commercial bank will finance up to approximately 70% of the purchase price.
