|ADDING VALUE TO YOUR BUSINESS|
|If you are considering
selling your business, remember that there are positive factors that
influence value and those that detract from it. Looking at your businss
from a buyer’s perspective is important since a prudent buyer will be
adding or subtracting these various factors when arriving at an asking
price. It is perhaps more important to recognize when the buyer arrives at
a price at which he or she will leave the negotiations. Buyers naturally
try to buy the business at the lowest price possible, however most also
have a top price over which they are probably not willing to go. Here are
some of the “high value” indicators as well as some of the “low value”
indicators to consider when evaluating your business.
Indications of High Value
Indications of Low Value
Considering the above factors and how to address them can help a seller
look at the business through the eyes of a potential buyer. A professional
business broker can help the business owner sort through the many areas
that buyers consider when looking at a business and trying to arrive at an
initial offering price.
