The Hughes Group offers the following services needed to sell your business or to grow through an acquisition.
Determine the value of your business.
Recast financial statements are necessary in the sale of your business to show real profits. Understanding your market provides a defensible foundation for projections in order to show true value in preparing for the sale of your business. Buyers buy the future, not the past but the future has to be properly presented from the truth of the past.
Provide a complete selling document that will position your business for a successful transaction.
A confidential marketing document is no small matter and is your silent salesperson. It should include new business areas, industry outlook, market conditions, hidden assets, recast statements, reputation, and organizational structure. When a group or individual wants to buy a business, there are important questions that need answered. Together, we will effectively navigate through those waters for the successful sale of your business.
Find the optimum selling strategy.
One buyer is no buyer when trying to sell your business. You need several buyers. Synergistic buyers will pay premium prices to buy your business. They have the cash to buy and the motivation to pay premiums. Your business may be a fit for their operations. You can then command a premium price. Domestic as well as offshore corporations have to be contacted confidentially for the sale of your business. Professional Investment Groups, individual buyers, web site marketing as well as other means have to be initiated to manage the sale of a business. We will find the best buyer for the sale of your business.
Offer expert advice on preparing your business for sale.
Your financial statements should be completely clean to prepare for the sale of a business. Study your weaknesses and turn them into opportunities for future growth. Any disputes, lawsuits or disagreements must be addressed: a buyer wants to see them being handled. We understand that the small things are important in the process of handling the sale of your business.
Secure a premium price.
It is no small achievement to find out what large corporations, domestic and offshore, are looking to buy a business and why. Will they pay for a bigger market share? How do they look at value? Terms are important. We will be objective about your business. We can negotiate freely, forcefully and with only one thing in mind: your top value.
Bring negotiating skills to the bargaining table.
Can you negotiate the sale of your business without getting emotionally involved? Will buyers criticize your management style to obtain a lower price for your business? Should you discuss ROI, ROS, ROA of the business before the sale? Someone who is not emotionally involved needs to be your advocate to keep all parties calm and under control to go through the anxious moments that occur when you sell a business that has been your life and a buyer risks his capital to buy a business with which he is not intimate. We understand the emotions involved in the sale of a business and know how to negotiate the transaction to keep all parties on track.
