Overview of Services for Sellers
Selling a business is likely to be one of the largest financial events in your life.
Bridgepoint Business Brokers offers a comprehensive range of services supporting the sale of privately held companies. We are uniquely positioned to coordinate the entire selling process with the highest levels of integrity and confidentiality.
We assist with the following aspects of the transaction:
We will work with you to determine a market price for your business that is both realistic and supportable. We understand that most privately held businesses prepare their financial information to minimize the tax burden. We will recast your financials and prepare a financial profile that shows your business in the best light.
Business Profile Preparation
We will prepare a professional and detailed business package that can be presented to qualified purchasers. The package will highlight key features and attributes of the business, assembling all critical information in one place. This document will not only streamline the buying process, but presents your business in the most favourable light.
Customized Marketing Plan
We will examine various marketing approaches and utilize those that align with your business. Our marketing strategy maintains the highest level of confidentiality, and we are committed to providing you with regular updates on prospects and marketing results.
Buyer Qualification & Targeted Acquisition Searches
Prospective buyers will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement and undergo screening for both business and financial capability before receiving any information about your business. Screening potential buyers saves you valuable time. Targeted searches, along with access to our database of active business buyers, will expose your business to a higher volume of prequalified candidates.
Detailed Process Management
We guide the entire sale and strive to provide a seamless and efficient transaction. This includes negotiating the best price on your behalf, coordinating with outside advisors, seeking out financing options for an interested purchaser, handling requests for documentation, and closing and transition coordination.
