Contact a Business Broker with experience selling Distributors
The right business broker can help you with all of the steps in selling a distribution company. A good business broker will have a network of many motivated business buyers and will know which ones to contact. They will be able to advise you on ways to maximize the value of your business and how to make it look the most appealing to potential buyers.
When you do contact a business broker, it’s essential that you contact one with experience in the distribution industry. A general business broker isn’t going to know how to find the buyers most interested in buying your business, or the pitfalls that can befall someone trying to sell a business like yours.
Properly Value Your Business
You can’t get the best value for your distribution business if you don’t know what it's worth, and the value of your business is usually based on much more than the assets minus liabilities. A professional Business Broker can get a complete picture of the value of your business and provide you with a reliable estimate you can use as a negotiating tool with buyers.
You don't want your customers and employees to know that your business is for sale. Using a professional business broker will protect your confidentiality during the sales process. They will market your business in general terms and will get prospective buyers to sign a non-disclosure agreement and qualify them before providing the details about your business.
Get Multiple Buyers
If you have a successful distribution business, you know that the more buyers you have, the better. Multiple buyers are an indicator that your business has higher value and puts you in a much stronger negotiating position than if you’re trying to sell your business to a single entity.
