:: Preparing to Sell?

05/16/2012
The complexity of preparing a business for sale can be overwhelming. But advance preparation by the owner likely will lead to more interested buyers, an increased sale price and fewer transaction costs.

After all, buyers are attracted to profitable businesses that are easy to evaluate and operate. For this reason, spending time and resources on completing the following seven steps is worthwhile for most owners:

Get financials in order. Up-to-date, accurate financial statements including balance sheets, income statements, cash flow statements and tax returns should be readily available for buyers to review. Historical financial statements and tax returns also should be ready for disclosure, and a seller should have explanations for any past or present issues. Buyers tend to request this type of information first and will likely evaluate it fully before spending any time looking at other components of the business. Many buyers walk away from deals at this stage because of poor record-keeping, questionable tax practices or lack of information.
