As the starting point we will need to understand the reasons for the sale and gain an understanding of your preferred exit strategy. We also need to take an overview of the business in order to advise as to whether the time is right to sell.
Many businesses are placed on the market without any preparation whatsoever. For example, does the success of the business depend on the current owner? What are the trading trends? Is significant investment going to be required in the short term? What are the relationships with key customers and suppliers?
The Ventura Business Broker director handling your account will give you a realistic assessment and if further work is needed prior to sale will be able to give ongoing consultancy and advice to help you position for a successful outcome.
