Choosing the Wrong Broker Can Cost You Time, Money & Embarassment
About 2 years ago a man and his wife called me about selling their business.
After analyzing their previous 3 years of tax returns, I calculated a market value and called her to let her know exactly what the business was worth in today’s market. I could tell you how the phone call went, but the bottom line is they didn’t agree with the valuation.
After I informed them of the target valuation, they told me they would “get back to me”. I didn’t hear from them for almost 2 years…then they called me back.
“Chad can you help us? We hired a broker, and we have been at this for over a year and the business isn’t sold and we really need to sell it.”
I kindly asked “Why did you hire another broker?” She said “Because we thought that we could get more money and this broker told us that we should ask for more money as well.” I gave her very candid and frank advice, like we do with all our clients and told her that she made a huge mistake: “If you go to the market with too high of a price tag the banks won’t finance the buyer. Not to mention the prospective buyers had no real value in buying your business because the debt service payment due to the bank is so high, the way your old business broker priced it out, the buyer would be paying an exorbitant amount of money to the bank loan in order to acquire your business. A good business broker should not have led you down that path!”
The sellers in this true story, a husband and wife, are worn out and now they have even more health problems. On top of that, their poor selling strategy distracted them for over a year and took focus away from their business. Sales and profits dropped as a result, making the business to be worth less than when they started the process…all because they chose the wrong business broker.
We won’t let this happen to you, make Peterson Acquisitions part of your success strategy today.
