An independent third party can be extremely valuable to both business owners who are looking to sell and those who want to buy their businesses.
Have you wondered about whether it would be a good idea to get somebody from the outside to come inside your business and help you get ready to sell it? Or have you wondered about whether it’s a good idea to get a third party involved to help you negotiate the terms of a purchase of a business? I’m here today to share my thoughts on this matter.
When people own companies and they’re getting to the point of retiring, they aren’t usually prepared. Maybe they don’t know the right way to sell or what the actual value of the company is.
At Nabity Business Advisors, we help owners figure out the true value of their company and the best way to sell it. There are a lot of options out there. Sometimes it’s better to get a firm on board like ours to help negotiate the transition. Using a 3rd party helps separate yourself from the negotiation and we can help get a deal done where everyone is happy with the outcome.
For buyers, having someone to study prospective organizations is key. That way, you’ll know that you’re getting into a good business transaction with good people. If it’s a merger, this is especially important. We can separate you from the transaction, look at what a fair price is, look at the people you’re going to be merging with, and make sure everything is a good fit. With a firm like ours in the middle, we can work hard to find out the greater good of the whole.
One last thing I wanted to mention was regarding family transactions. When you’re dealing with parents, kids, and siblings, conflicts can arise. We try to build trust with all the family members involved in a situation like this so we can do the right thing by the business and by each member of the family. We will make sure everyone still loves each other at the end so that Christmas isn’t ruined.
If you have any questions for me, don’t hesitate to reach out and give me a call or send me an email today. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
