Why Business Sellers Choose SB M&A Canada
Regardless of the size of business you want to sell, you need someone in your corner with the expertise and resources needed to increase your chances of a successful – and smooth –transaction.
You’ve worked hard, investing your time, money, energy, and countless other resources into a business you’re proud of. And the prospect of selling this prized asset can be daunting, and of course you may have many questions, such as:
- What is my business worth?
- Is it saleable?
- How much risk is involved?
- Can I keep it private?
- How will it be valued?
- What are the tax implications?
- What steps do I need to take to get the most value?
- Who can I trust?
A Proven Process
Our M&A intermediaries follow a proven process that protects both you the seller, and the buyer. It’s our job to ask the right questions ensuring both parties achieve their goals (it’s in your interest to keep the buyer happy too). The SB M&A team will walk you through the process, step-by-step, helping to alleviate the stress of finding the right buyer.
We assure confidentiality when selling your business
We understand and respect your need for confidentiality during this process. We’ve developed protocols in place to protect you and your business when advertising, disclosing information, and handling buyers.
We have registered pre-qualified buyers
We have access to a database of active buyers looking for businesses – owner-operators, financial buyers, strategic acquirers, private equity groups and family offices looking for investment opportunities.
Our extensive network of professional contacts among accountants, lawyers, bankers, business coaches, consultants, wealth planners, insurance experts, venture and entrepreneurial sources also ensures that active buyers in the market are routinely, and in some cases exclusively, referred to us.
We maximize value when selling your business
Since our M&A intermediaries are also CPAs, they have extensive expertise in valuation principles, financial statement analysis, taxation implications, inventory, goodwill and so on. They know how to optimize the value of your business to move it up the value chain.
And minimize the risk
The lower the perceived risk to a buyer, the more a buyer can afford to pay, which in turn means – you will receive more.
By focusing on finding the right buyer for your business — someone with the right experience, skills, ethics, financial resources, risk tolerance, passion, etc – the more likely a successful transaction.
M&A intermediaries and business brokers have a much higher listing to closing rate
Businesses offered through M&A intermediaries and business brokers enjoy a much greater listing to closing rate than those offered through other professionals such as realtors, accountants, or for that matter, those listed directly by business owners. Our intermediaries are trained to sell your business. And that’s what we’ll do.
