How We Help St. Louis Business Owners
Selling a business is a very specialized process. Often the business is not properly configured to be conveyed, and ABN brokers work closely with you to affect the changes necessary so that you can achieve your objectives. In order to get top dollar for the owner, ABN follows a proven process.
- It all begins with a valuation. Before your business goes to market, ABN develops a comprehensive financial overview, or valuation, of your company. We work with various financing entities and often preview the business particulars with lenders to determine what conditions are required to enable financing for a buyer. This enables you to get paid in full at closing without having to provide the financing or carry a note for the acquiring buyer.
- Brokers dedicated to confidentiality. Discretion is critical to allowing the business to continue to operate successfully. ABN’s proven process maintains confidentiality throughout the process – helping to ensure that employees, customers and competitors are unaware of what is happening. This benefits everyone involved in the business and eliminates a perceived stereotype that a business is in trouble or failing.
- Serving as your voice when selling a business. Our proven process generates lots of interest, which means that we field lots of inquiries. ABN brokers handle all aspects of the inquiries so that you can focus 100% of your attention on your business. We require that buyers accept a Non-Disclosure Agreement and provide evidence of financial qualification to ensure that they can close the transaction before learning all the specifics regarding your business.
Selling your business is a big decision and one not to take lightly. Make sure you have a qualified business broker who can guide you through the entire process and get you the results you’ll be satisfied with.
