The Bridge Business Broker Sales Process
Our “How to Sell Your Business” approach begins by analyzing your finances, operations, market potential, and current trends. We then use this information to generate a business profile that represents your company in the most attractive way possible.
We identify the best possible price range to sell your company based on solid facts, projected growth, sales potential, and the sale of similar businesses within your industry. We use sophisticated, time-proven valuation techniques to ensure your price is appropriate for current market conditions so we can present your business as an attractive investment.
We use the latest technologies to present your company to global business brokers and strategic buyers, greatly multiplying your chances of a successful sale. While you literally have hundreds of industry professionals working to sell your company, confidentiality is always maintained and assured.
Bridge Business Brokers’ aggressive marketing program provides maximum exposure for your company. Your listing’s placed and continuously updated on and in various industry databases, online sites, and publications. We spend more money on advertising and marketing for our buyers than nearly anyone else in our industry.
You don’t want your information scattered throughout the internet – we don’t either! We organize all necessary documentation and release limited information only as needed. All potential buyers are pre-qualified. We also require all buyers to sign confidentiality agreements before they receive any sensitive details about the business sale.
Once you meet one or more qualified buyers, we negotiate to obtain the highest price possible at the most favourable terms and urge them to prepare and present all offers. We also approach and continue to track potential buyers without weakening your position.
We take pride in helping you protect your legacy and find a buyer who’s a good fit and who’s willing and able to pay your price and meet your terms. But that’s only half the job. The other half is getting the buyer to the closing table. Working with accountants, lawyers, banks, landlords, and other third parties, we deftly manage the deal and avoid any pitfalls that could jeopardize the sale’s success.
Administrative procedures, licenses, and lease assignments - we help manage them all! We work closely with your other advisors to guarantee a smooth transition and do everything in our power to get the deal done quickly and efficiently!
Need additional help after the sale of your business? We’re a part of the community and are here to provide you with any assistance you may require after the closing.
