Liquidity issues, retirement, an increased aversion to risk and desire to try something new are among the reasons why selling your company might be an attractive option. Although knowing when to sell your business might be relatively easy to determine, knowing how to sell your business can be something else altogether. With the help and advice of the professional Tampa Bay business brokers at Links Financial, the how can become as uncomplicated as the when.
Before You Sell
Entrepreneurs launch their companies with specific business and financial goals in mind. When it is time to sell, these goals should still be kept in mind. Links Financial can help business owners time the sale of their business so that they get the maximum value for their company in conjunction with structuring the sale based upon the seller’s intentions. With decades of experience in the Tampa Bay area, our advisors are well versed in the business market and understand what buyers look for and require. Whether the company is sold outright, as part of a merger or acquisition, or only a percentage of the business is sold to a new business partner, we have the experience to make the transition smooth and virtually seamless. When necessary, our experienced financial consultants can help business owners restructure existing debt or their organizational structure to make the company more attractive to potential buyers.
Finding the Right Buyer
A vital component of selling your company is finding the right buyer. Buyers come in many forms: another company, a business partner, private equity firms and employees, to name a few. They may come from the Tampa Bay area, the state of Florida or across the country. At Links Financial, our team of experienced business brokers employ innovative marketing strategies to connect with our extensive buyer network. We will provide a current market valuation of your business and pre-qualify potential buyers. As seasoned professionals, we specialize in matching buyers and sellers.
