Why It’s Not It Worth It To “Win”

Business deals don’t just have a lot of moving parts, they have a lot of people. People with a lot to lose and people with a lot to gain. People who do this kind of thing for a living and are therefore unbothered by potential issues and people who’ve never bought or sold a business who think every small issue is a disaster. People who have to write very big checks and the people who are counting on those checks.

 

In any situation where you combine a lot of people and relatively high monetary stakes – drama is inevitable. There has probably never been a business transaction where everything was smooth and no one got upset.

 

 

Here’s why we bring this up. People who are going to buy a business and people who already own one are a tough bunch. You could call it type-A personality. You have to be strong, resilient, willing to make decisions and willing to take risks to be a successful entrepreneur. This personality, however, can be a bit of an issue when a business is changing hands.

 

Why? No ONE person can “win” in a business transaction.

 

The contract used for the sale of a business will end up being a very carefully crafted and heavily negotiated document. Heavily negotiated because businesses are inherently complex, and as such there are a lot of things to discuss and then decide on. How much is the buyer going to pay? Will there be financing of some sort? How will the lease be transferred? How will the licenses be transferred? What are the time frame and responsibilities for both parties during the training period? How long will the seller let the buyer have for due diligence? This list goes on and on.

 

The reality that essentially everything needs to not only be discussed but agreed upon as well means that neither side is going to get everything they want, exactly as they want it. Everyone, EVERYONE in the deal is going to have to make a few compromises if they want to get a deal done.

 

What this means for you if you’re a buyer or a seller is you can’t die on your sword every time something isn’t going your way. You can’t be petty about small things because you’re frustrated about something that has happened in the weeks or months that it takes to put a deal together. It means you can’t be petulant and difficult just because you feel like it.

 

At this point you’re probably saying “I’d never do that” – right? You might.

 

When a business changes hands, so does a lot of money. It’s a business that is someone’s blood, sweat and tears – and is getting handed to a complete stranger. The entire process can be long and incredibly stressful. It will be very hard for both sides of the table to always remain objective and not feel personally challenged during many parts of the process. You have to go into this knowing that your buttons will be pushed, your stress might get the better of you and your feelings might get hurt.

 

When that inevitably happens, don’t do this. Don’t make everyone change the time and place for a meeting last minute just because you want to be difficult on purpose. Don’t drag your feet with documentation that the other side has requested just because you think their questions are annoying. Although mildly entertaining for you in the moment, petty nonsense like this only wastes your own time and puts your own deal in jeopardy.

 

Power plays to “win” will do nothing but aggravate everyone in the deal – a deal that’s hard enough already and doesn’t need the additional drama. Go into your deal knowing that this process will be challenging, but worth it if you can remain patient.

 

Have you been in a business transaction where emotions got the better of someone and have an experience to share? Would you like to know more about the challenging parts of a business transaction? Leave any questions or comments, we would be happy to help.

This firm manufactures, sells, installs and services custom lampposts, mailboxes and other items found in new home communities and other commercial development projects.  It has been in operation since 1992, resulting in thousands of unique, custom lampposts and mailboxes onsite in the many developments where their products have been sold.  When one is damaged, the firm is the only with the forms needed to make repairs because the products are so unique.  The current owner has had the business for 9 years. 
The customer base is builder/developers when they design a new community or commercial project and then the various HOA/POA’s where the firm has supplied products.  Also, Community Association Management firms who are managing the associations where product has been supplied in the past as well as some municipal governments.  There is a significant level of exclusivity with this business due to the unique nature of the product.  If a light pole is damage it must be repaired, and if this firm provided the pole, they are the fastest path to a repair or replacement of the fixture.  Because this firm can be a “one-stop shop” for its customer base they are the preferred vendor for Associations and Association Managers who just want their “problem” handled.  The firm has provided products in approximately 250 new home communities that were developed over the past 25 or 30 years, which makes for strong residual business. Also, there are ongoing service contracts in place for the street lighting in around 10 associations and there is one contract with a municipality. At this point, a great deal of the business revenue comes from maintenance and repair of existing products in the field and replacing products that are damaged. 
There is a great deal of upside for this business. Currently the business is marketed only by Word-of-Mouth.  The firm has never had a website and the owner feels that a dynamic website would likely increase sales substantially. In addition to no online presence, the owner does no advertising and turns away a lot of business. There are 2 FT and 1 PT employees.
The business is currently operated from the owner’s home but the purchase price includes a very well located one-acre storage lot that has been improved for development of a 3,000 s.f. warehouse building.

Great opportunity to own a 38 year old cabinet and counter top manufacturer and distributor. Providing both custom and pre-fab products to the area’s largest builders and many smaller builders and designers. Products include Formica and solid surfaces such as granite, Corian and Gibraltar.  Experience staff – owner willing to ensure a smooth transition. Business must be relocated to another facility by May 2022 as current location has been sold. Owner will facilitate relocation. Given the long delivery times for cabinets as a result of supply chain issues, this is a great opportunity for a current builder/manufacturer to fill in the gaps by providing custom cabinetry and countertops along with a short delivery time on pre-fab cabinets. The addition of a web presence could enhance business even further.

Saving Yourself From A Nightmare – How To Get Ready For Due Diligence

Selling your business can be tough and time consuming. In addition to your day-to-day responsibilities as a business owner you have to be available for conference calls and meetings with brokers and potential buyers, you have to host on-site tours, you have to train the new owner and most importantly you have to provide the information and documentation a buyer requests during due diligence.

 

This last part – the documentation – can become a massive issue if you as a seller aren’t ready with what a buyer will probably ask for long before they actually ask.

 

 

Here’s why. Once you’ve accepted an offer from a buyer the due diligence period can begin (where a buyer typically gets a couple of weeks to go through your business records and decide if they want to continue with the purchase) – but it only officially begins once you’ve supplied a buyer with the information they’ve requested. Your business is essentially off the market during this time, so prolonging the time before due diligence starts by being unprepared on your end can keep your business away from the eyes of other potential buyers should this deal fall through.

 

This part of a business transaction exemplifies the saying “an ounce of preparation is worth a pound of cure” because you don’t want to be scrambling to assemble lists of expenses, months of payroll, multiple years of tax returns, copies of business licenses and permits, leases for your business location, registration information for equipment and/or vehicles, dates of purchase for equipment or inventory, leases or purchase documentation for company vehicles, client contracts, vendor contracts, lists of assets, multiple months of inventory records, employee files – all while the pressure of a due diligence timeline hangs over your head. It can be a maddening and stress-fueled nightmare if you aren’t ready.

 

The best thing you can do for your sanity, your hopes of reaching a closing table and your relationship with potential buyers is be ready.

 

Talk to your business broker about what a buyer is going to want to see – then get all of that documentation ready. Create files that can be shared, collect copies of documentation and make sure your financial records are easy to read and decipher. If your books are a mess your broker might recommend having a CPA who specializes in business transactions put your financial records together in a way that will make sense to buyers.

 

The message here is it won’t be good for you or your hopes of successfully selling your business if you’re trying to do ten years of books in three days. Get ready first.

 

Is selling your business something you’re considering in the near future? Do your business records consist of hundreds of unorganized pieces of paper currently shoved in a big box under your desk? Would you like to know more about what potential buyers are going to want to see? Feel free to leave any questions or comments and we would be happy to help.

When Is The Perfect Time To Buy A Business?

When will the time be right for you to take the entrepreneurial plunge and buy a business?

 

This is obviously a very big question. It’s also a bad question.

 

This question is based on the notion that there is such a thing as perfection in life. There isn’t. There will never be a perfect business. There will never be a perfect time. Perfection implies an absence of risk – and like many things in life that are worth doing becoming a business owner comes with a healthy dose of risk. You might not succeed.

 

 

Guess what? You might not fail either.

 

Entrepreneurs buy businesses every day. Most of them work hard and achieve the goals they have for business ownership. You could too.

 

That first step – deciding now is as good a time as any – can seem like an impossible step if you cling to the idea that the perfect time will eventually come. It won’t. Instead, you have to decide that the goals you have for your life – to be your own boss, to follow your passions, to make a better life for yourself and your family – those things are worth taking a bit of a risk.

 

So how do you start? Maybe you’ve had an idea of the type of business you’d like to own for a long time, maybe you aren’t sure what kind of business would work for you. Either way the first step is to have a conversation with an experienced and qualified business broker.

 

That first conversation should be about a couple of very important things. What are your goals for business ownership? How many hours do you want to work per day or week? Where do you want your business to be located? How much money do you need your business to make? Do you have a passion for a particular industry? In what areas/industries do you have practical experience that you could draw on as a business owner? How much capital do you have to invest in your new business venture? Would you need financing and what types of financing would you be comfortable with?

 

The answers to these questions can help a good broker find businesses for you to consider. These questions can also help you figure out what you really want to get out of owning your own business. Knowing what your goals are will be instrumental in making an educated and thoroughly researched decision about which business you buy.

 

It can be scary to walk away from a steady paycheck that you get from someone else, but if you aren’t happy working for that someone else don’t wait for a perfect time that’s never going to come. Take a well-considered yet imperfect jump instead.

 

Have you always wanted to own your own business but were waiting for the perfect time? Do you have questions about what types of businesses would fit your goals? Ask us! Leave any questions or comments and we would be happy to help.
