SIX ELEMENTS REQUIRED TO ENSURE A SUCCESSFUL SALE.

Did you know that there are six essential elements which need to be present to enable a business to be sold?

The Six essential elements:

With these six elements present your business should sell promptly.

Conversely, if any of these elements are not present, a sale may not be completed in a timely manner.

One of the strengths of the Benchmark group is the fact that all of our business brokers have either owned and operated their own small business, or have been involved in business.

So, in speaking to a Benchmark agent, you are speaking to someone who REALLY knows what it’s like to run your own business.

THE STEPS INVOLVED IN SELLING YOUR BUSINESS

The steps:

Are we the best company to work for you? Is Benchmark the most suitable firm to represent your business when it is time to sell? Take time to meet with us and talk to us about the process, and your current position.

Take time to assess our company, and to determine how we would prepare your business to take it to market. Find out what we can do to assist you to transition ownership – and turn your business asset into cash.

Are you ready to sell? A check of the status of the business, and current market will enable you to decide if the business is ready to be sold now…..or if it is more prudent to wait a while.

Optimise all aspects of the sale process, and manage the outcome. Don’t rely upon the uncertainty of the market, create a plan and a course of action, which will help maximise business value, and minimise disruption.

Once everything is ready, it’s time to get started…. and with a professional business broker managing the process, a sale should ensue in 90 days. Benchmark’s “Formula For Success” aims at ensuring that your business is able to be sold – not simply listed for sale.

WHY SHOULD YOU CONSULT A – BENCHMARK BUSINESS BROKER?

Buying or Selling a business is a specialised and complex process that requires considerable experience in a
number of areas.

Just as you rely upon a qualified lawyer for legal advice, and your accountant for financial advice – you should seek professional advice and assistance when it comes to buying or selling an asset as important as a business.

Eight Reasons Why You Should Consult A Specialist

Confidentiality

Business values can be adversely affected if Key Employees, Suppliers or Customers find out that a business is on the market – which can often happen when owners deal directly with buyers.

Business brokers work to control confidentiality.

Advice

Experienced Business Brokers are an excellent source of information about the business buying and selling process.

They can advise you on current market trends, pricing and local issues.

Networking

Business brokers generally have a network of allied professionals and can help and guide buyer and seller through the sale process.

Buyers

All experienced and successful business brokers have a database of buyers looking to acquire a business.

A broker’s role includes qualification of all Buyers for Intent, Ability and Financial Resources

Marketing

Confidentially promoting the business to the target market and generating interest and demand is one of the great attributes that an experienced team of brokers will possess.

Managing the Process

Finding, screening and evaluating buyers, Arrangement of Business Inspections, transferring information on the business, negotiating the price and terms of sale to be acceptable to the Seller, facilitating the flow of information between Lawyers and Accountants and providing a buffer for the emotions that can arise between the parties.

Business brokers are apt at managing this complex process.

Efficiency

Both Buyer and the Seller benefit because the Broker has pre-qualified the business before listing and should know almost as much about the business as the owner.

This helps motivated Buyers who have been pre-qualified to quickly make a well informed decision on their level of interest in the business.

Completion

Management of the Process from Negotiation of Terms, Contract Preparation, Due Diligence.

Financial Approval through to Successful Settlement
