We specialize in business brokerage and the transfer of businesses for sale in Nashville and throughout Tennessee and Kentucky with annual revenue of $2 to 20 million. We quarterback the confidential process from valuation to selection of the right buyer to negotiating price through closing on best terms with minimal tax implications.
We start the process by evaluating your business to determine its fair market value and ensure that it is priced appropriately. Nothing facilitates a fast transaction like a market-based price.
Once valuation is established, we will complete a comprehensive marketing memorandum that provides detailed information about your business, including financial history, organization structure, product/service offerings, markets served, and opportunities for growth. Most Nashville business brokerage companies use a one-size-fits-all template, but we custom-write this memorandum for your business to include all the information that a financially qualified buyer would need to make a wise decision. While it might seem counter-intuitive, we have found that a seller will maximize his/her valuation and get the best terms when they work with the smartest best-informed buyers.
After the comprehensive marketing memorandum is written, we will customize a plan to promote your business to financially qualified buyers. This may include targeted marketing, direct mail, consumer and/or trade advertising, online listing service, and of course contact with our own database of individuals and companies that we know are interested in business acquisition.
We understand the importance of maintaining confidentiality throughout this process. Information about businesses for sale is shared with potential buyers in stages, as their level of interest heightens. We do not disclose identity of your business or confidential information without a signed Non-Disclosure Agreement.
We will use our network of banking relationships to assist the buyer arrange financing, if needed. This includes traditional financing or SBA –guaranteed loans.
We will coordinate with the seller’s accountant and attorney to assure that the closing is accomplished at minimal cost consistent with the seller’s tax and legal objectives.
