Your Toolkit to Selling Your Business

With a successful business comes, hard work, dedication, lots of sweat and maybe even a few tears.

However, there will come a time when it will be necessary for you to start considering how you are going to pass on the business that you have worked so diligently to grow.

One of the websites IAG acknowledges has very informative articles on all levels of business.

The next few months, IAG is going to share some of those with you in a step by step format. Let's start with the Obvious!

Selling Your Business

You may see your company as an extension of yourself, and it may be hard to even imagine life without it. In some cases your entire family may have depended on the business, discussed it endlessly around the dinner table, used it as an education and a proving ground for the children, and practically made it into another family member!

On the other hand, your business may have been only marginally successful, and something you can't wait to get rid of. Or, perhaps you entered into the business with the idea that it would be a short-term opportunity and that you'd sell out whenever you got a decent offer.

Whatever your situation, selling your business will be one of the most important things you'll ever do, because unlike virtually every other business decision you've made over the years, you'll only do this once. You get a single chance to put a price tag on possibly years and years of effort and once you sign the sales documents, it's over.

You'll come out way ahead, both financially and personally, if you make an effort to understand the steps in selling, formulate your plan carefully with the help of your professional advisors, and, when the time comes, take the time to negotiate a price and terms that satisfy your reasons for getting out of the business.

Even if you think you're many years away from selling out, you should consider what your heirs or successors would have to do if you died unexpectedly. If you don't have a workable exit strategy in place, your heirs may have no choice but to liquidate the business and sell off the assets piecemeal, getting nothing for the goodwill you've built up over the course of the years.

Here are the major issues you need to think about when it's time to sell your business:

  • Initial Issues in Selling Out: how should you time your decision and choose experts to help, and what legal/ethical pitfalls do you need to avoid?
  • Valuations of Businesses: how does the market put a price on a small business, and what can you do to maximize your own business's value?
  • Finding a Buyer: What do you need to know about working with a business broker, creating a selling memorandum, and other marketing concerns?
  • Structuring the Deal: What are your options as to terms, paying particular attention to the tax implications of various alternatives?
  • Financing the Deal: What should you know about seller financing, and third-party financing through leveraged buyouts?
  • Completing the Deal: From the Letter of Intent through due diligence to the closing, what are the typical steps you can expect to go through in the sales process?
  • After the Sale: We add a few notes about your new, unencumbered life!
