How to Maximize Sale Price of a Business: A Free Roadmap
Acquisition Advisors, a firm specializing in the purchase and sale of mid-sized US companies, has released the "Path To Absolute Maximum Sale Price." Its purpose is to help business owners garner the highest possible sale price when they decide it's time to sell.
"This time of year is a time of reflection and strategic planning," said David Perkins, founder of Acquisition Advisors. "The decision to sell a company that you've poured so much of yourself into is enormous, with far-reaching consequences for you and your family. We're in the business of helping business owners who don't need to, but have decided it makes strategic sense to sell. We add value to the process by ensuring the absolute maximum price is garnered."
To that end, Acquisition Advisors has built a "Path To Absolute Maximum Sale Price," which is an extensive, in-depth document that covers every aspect of planning for and executing a company sale.
"In addition to being a significant, life-altering decision, there are a number of factors that go into the successful sale of a business that aren't readily apparent to many people," Perkins said. "That's why we felt it is so important to create the roadmap, and to make it freely available to all."
Among the points covered in the roadmap:
- Value drivers (and killers)
- Barriers to marketability and how to eliminate them
- Timing considerations and how to get it right
- Essential preparation and proper packaging
- The only way to execute the buyer search
- How to maintain confidentiality
- Closing and post-closing basics
The roadmap is available free of charge at www.acquisitionadvisors.com.
