Facing The Realities of Selling a Privately Owned Business

Facing The Realities of Selling a Privately Owned Business

Selling or Buying a buisness

Business owners may need to accept the reality that:


  • It might be better to liquidate the business than to try to sell it.


  • The revenue size of the business impacts the value of the business.


  • There will be one offer for a business rather than multiple offers.


  • Offers to buy the business are often less than the owner believes a business is worth.


  • It takes substantial time and effort to sell a business.


  • Selling a business can be an emotional experience.


There are numerous factors that add and subtract value for a privately owned business that is for sale, but owners need to remember that a public, or large privately held business will have different value indicators than a small privately held business.
