Selling Your Business

Congratulations you’ve created a great business! You've shown solid year-to-year growth, operated profitably, and developed both a great team and a great product. Now what?

Like many business owners, much of your net worth is tied up in your company. So, what's the best way to turn some of that appreciation into cash for you as you start to exit the business? The first step is to understand what your company is actually worth. There are several basic valuation formulas out there that investors will use but it's our job at Central Ohio Business Advisors to create a compelling story that will attract potential buyers and ensure maximum value for you. After determining your needs—including how long you’d like to remain with the business after the sale, your short- and long-term cash requirements, and your desire for stock transactions and goals for key members of your team—we will put together Offer Memoranda that can be presented to the potential buyers that we have evaluated and screened in advance.

Buying A Business

How do you determine what a target company is worth? Will it be a Stock Sale or an Asset Purchase? There are so many factors that go into establishing an offer for a company that you would like to buy. For example, properly forcasting the potential cash flow of the new operation also entails a complete understanding of any combined savings you might enjoy through the acquisition. This key factor must be considered when funding the acquisition debt of the new business.

The due diligence phase of the acquisition is critical, since you must have a thorough understanding of the liabilities you are taking on and the likelihood that the business you are acquiring will at least continue at its current pace after the transaction.

The experiences of Central Ohio Business Advisors through all the phases of sales and acquisitions—from introductions to closings—has provided us with the necessary knowledge and experience to help you maximize value in selling or buying a business.
