Selling a business can be a time-consuming process packed with headaches. It doesn't have to be.
Deciding to sell your business is the easy part. How to go about it is another
problem altogether! Setting a price, advertising, negotiating with a prospective
buyer, and a sea of legal and financial details need to be addressed. Also,
most accounting in a privately held company is done to minimize tax obligations
and may not portray the company in the best light; we deal with this problem
Cal and Gateway Business Advisors provide or can help with:
In addition, we screen buyers to determine their financial qualifications. Because we work with each potential buyer in finding the right business for his or her needs, the prospects we bring to you are genuinely interested in your business as well as financially capable of making a purchase.
Did you know that only one out of 10 buyers ever buys the type of business
they called about? Only one out of 400 buyers buys the specific business advertised!
While this can be maddening if you try to sell your business alone, it's a
big plus if you are working with Gateway Business Advisors. Since we receive
dozens of inquiries each day, the fact that you listed your firm with us
increases the likelihood of finding a buyer early in the selling process.
Because we screen all inquiries, then schedule buyer-seller meetings only with serious prospects at a time convenient to you, you receive the combined benefits of convenience and absolute confidentiality.
We handle negotiations in a clean, patient professional manner that keeps
the business issues clearly in focus, rather than clouded by emotions and/or
personalities. We can do something you cannot do, we are able to pursue a buyer.
If you do, they may feel you are desperate and will only low-ball you on price.
We can make selling your business a successful, rewarding experience from your first meeting with us to the day you turn over the keys to the new owner.
