Selling a Florida Business

Selling a Florida Business

The process of selling a Florida business can be a very productive and rewarding experience. American Business Brokers goes the extra mile to ensure their clients reach their goals.

American Business Brokers operates on the fundamental premise that there can be no losers in the successful sale of a privately held company. Both the seller and buyer must be satisfied after the transaction is complete. To achieve this goal, we take extraordinary precautions to ensure that every business is properly priced and has a sound financial structure. American Business Brokers works hard to ensure that they understand, as precisely as possible, every business they represent. We will not knowingly misrepresent a business, or ever encourage a buyer to underbid the client's price. Our goal is to match sustainable, profitable businesses to motivated, qualified buyers.

The process starts with a preliminary, no-obligation consultation—scheduled at the seller's convenience, and typically at their place of business. General information is exchanged, so the seller and the business broker may become acquainted with each other, their respective businesses and the seller’s confidential, strategic-exit, as well as their financial objectives.

Next, a comprehensive Business Valuation is conducted to provide the seller with a real-time, detailed report for the seller to understand a realistic price range in which they may expect to receive for their business.

Information required to analyze the business includes the following:

  • two to three years of detailed and current financial statements, balance sheets, and income tax returns.
  • list of furniture, fixtures, equipment, inventory, trade names, patents, and other assets to be transferred with the company.
  • real property and equipment leases.
  • any other contractual relationship of the business.
  • other information which will affect company operation.

The seller and the business broker work together to establishing the asking price, as well as the terms for the business for sale.

A contractual agreement is entered into between the seller and American Business Brokers, giving American Business Brokers the right to market the business as the transactional agent for a specified time period and, under specified terms and conditions.

Then, the seller and American Business Brokers collaborate to develop a marketing plan unique to their business. This includes a specialized listing presentation and, both digital and conventional target-marketing.

American Business Brokers thoroughly qualifies, screens and educates all prospective buyers to minimize unnecessary exposure and disruption of the business. Adequate preparation of well-qualified buyers with a step-by-step understanding of the business instills confidence within the buyer to proceed to final purchase.
