Art of Selling a Business

The Art of Selling Your Biz in the UK

Selling one’s business especially in the UK is easier said than done for most. Although it may seem like an insurmountable task when a business owner is put into a position to sell his/her business for whatever reason, there is proper support and assistance available from well-experienced professionals to aid in the process of finding an appropriate purchaser. One such outlet is Aldermaston‘s own Firm Gains, a company that has been making a name for itself in this industry against long-time established houses.

As a boutique operation, Firm Gains isn’t the biggest but when it comes to attention to detail and down right telling you like it is, I’ve found their service to be straightforward and that’s a quality lacking amongst some of the other well-known agencies that advertise left and right like there is no tomorrow.

Returning back to the subject at hand (selling one’s business), business sellers who opt to sell the company because of unavoidable circumstances such as ill health are likely to be losers at the end. The buyers will only find confidence in companies that have higher earnings and they have to be connected to past figures. The current earnings as well have to be high; the projections for the near future also need to be real as this is the only way that will enable the buyer to know the strength of the business. It has never been easy for the buyer and the seller, but the key indicators that would really determine the value of the business depends on the revenue as well as the ability to expand. The use of extensive advertisement channels is a good way of building the profile of the company and bringing it closer to the global audience. This will no doubt lead to enhanced growth of the business. Valuation multiple is also a good way of determining the worthiness of the business. In this case, well established companies normally do have several multiples while the unstable ones have lower. A company should look good from all angles (this includes management and brand awareness).

There are different kinds of companies and it is important to evaluate the worthiness through the assets. The level at which the working capital is operating also needs to be estimated. Some of the indicators of a company’s value include the nature and extent of assets, the fixed assets, debtors and creditors, taxation among others. The issue of goodwill is also crucial; any company that has a well established reputation will also be valued higher. The financial performance as well as the level of competitiveness, location and the immediate # of customers are some of the things to look at further to valuate the company up for sell.

Of course if the above seems to be to daunting of a task, I highly recommend that you seek out the services of a professional intermediary agency to get you the answers to the questions that you seek. Leave the busy work to the professionals so you can concentrate on the next phase of your life, post-company. Less stress for one thing, you’ll be glad you did at the end after everything is over and done with.
