BUSINESS BUYING PROCESS
Buying a business is a time-consuming process, possibly taking years to find the right business match.

Here are some key steps to follow in the business search process:

Self-assessment:

Ever consider why you want to buy a business? What types of business activities do you prefer and the kind of lifestyle do you want to attain? It’s paramount to recognise that there may be more effort and longer hours at the expenses of family time for business owner in certain industries.

Establish financial expectations

Determine how much money you need and want to earn. Make sure your expectations are in line with the types of businesses you are targeting and the return they can produce.

 

Put together a personal financial statement

Outline your assets and liabilities. Identify what you can use for your initial investment. The personal financial statement serves as proof of your financial wherewithal, so be prepared to share this document with a seller’s intermediary.

 

Update your corporate profile

Sellers want to be sure that their business will continue to be a success. They’re looking for someone with the experience necessary to continue their legacy and take care of the staff. Ultimately, you’re selling yourself to the current owner(s), the lender and the professionals representing them.

 

Outline your acquisition criteria

Define the parameters of your search. Ideally it should include your targeted industries, geographic area and transaction size. Your acquisition criteria will help you demonstrate your commitment to finding the right business for you.

 

Search multiple sources and enlist help

Let your professional advisors (e.g. attorney, accountant, financial planner) know you are looking for a business. Most importantly, contact business intermediaries who represent businesses within your targeted market.

 

Due Diligence

It is a complex process that can be time-consuming. But with so much on the line with any merger or acquisition, you don’t want to make a decision without all of the information. You want to be sure everything is reviewed and all questions are answered to your satisfaction.

It’s also important to keep an open mind. Be sure that you get all of the information you need, but don’t assume that you will find something wrong.

Although the due diligence process may take considerable time, it’s a critical part of any transaction and should be considered the foundation of the entire deal.
