Please click above to see our perfect BBB history without “0” complaints in our history. We are proud to say that after 25 years in business and has sold over 300 businesses, we have NEVER breached confidentiality.

One thing is for certain and that is that YOU cannot run your business forever, author unknown. 

At CBG, we sell businesses for 30%-50% more than other brokers can get and have never breached confidentiality in over 25 years of selling businesses.  Yes, over 300 business sales, not “1” complaint, or “1” confidentiality breach.  Who else can say that?

Do you know what you what your business is worth?   If not, we would like to learn more about your business and if you are interested, provide a free business valuation.  This way you know what it’s worth now, or what you need to do to get the value you want.

Most business owners are comfortable selling or transitioning for the “right price and terms”. What are YOUR price and terms?  If you got them in the next year or two, would you sell?

Do you know what value it needs to be to have enough money after taxes and fees to move on to something else someday or retire, whenever that may be?

Is your business ready to sell?  Are YOU emotionally ready to sell now?  Why do you want to sell?  It should be for the “right” reasons, not just a knee-jerk reaction to a bad day/week.

Do you feel you have taken the company as far as you want to and think someone else may be better suited to grow it going forward?

How to transfer the business to a new owner without the loss of any customers, suppliers, and employees knowing how delicate and long-standing these relationships are?

How do you sell a business and keep it 100% confidential?

“Buyers are much better at buying businesses, then sellers are at selling”, author unknown.

Don’t let a buyer push you to sell for a low sales price based upon a multiple of the last few years.  This will never get you the highest possible sales price.  See what we can do for you.

Don’t sell your business based upon the “profits of the past” …sell the future potential.  Simply put, you need to showcase all the reasons why the business has not performed well in recent years.  This is exactly what we try to do at CBG.

We strongly believe it is foolhardy to establish the value of a business based upon a multiple of earnings.  We have sold hundreds of business for a sales price substantially above a multiple of the past earnings.

In short, the highest possible value of a business will happen when you find that 1 buyer that sees to upside potential/growth of your business.  Almost any business can be sold for some level of value, the trick is to find that 1 buyer that will pay the highest price who truly “gets it”, who sees the business NOT for what it made over the past 3-5years, but INSTEAD for what it could have made had the current owner done things differently.

Also, the broker needs to work closely with the seller to collect all the ideas or improvements that need to be in place to get the business to the next level.  Maybe all the business needs are new energy or working capital and the current owner is financially tapped out and/or burned out.  Once the buyer fully understands what the business “can be” going forward after these new ideas are implemented and renewed energy from the new owner is in place, then, buyers will always pay a substantial premium.

We use a very sophisticated method to quietly and privately bring to a given buyer all this to get them excited and willing to pay the seller a premium.  We are experts at painting a mental picture in the buyer’s mind about what life would be like after the purchaser has bought the business and implemented all your suggested ideas to improve the business going forward.  We do this through Video, a comprehensive write-up as well as detailed financial projections of the next 3-5 years after all the changes are installed and the business has a fresh new head of steam.

Remember, CBG and the seller’s interest are directly aligned to maximize the sales price because the more the seller gets, the more CBG gets.

More specifically, you need to be able to paint a picture in the buyer’s mind about what life would be like after the purchaser has bought the business and implemented all your suggested ideas to improve the business going forward.   You need to be able to get a buyer excited about, not what the business has been making for the last 5-10 years for you, but instead, what it could have been making if the right decisions were made in the past.  Also, it’s great to show what the gross sales and cash flow would have been if the right energy were there in the past, and if it were properly capitalized or had enough money to.

Finding this perfect buyer can be hard, but it’s worth the effort since it will always result in the biggest sales price possible.

Company broker group is the number one Colorado mergers and acquisitions company. For almost 30 years now we have been the most successful Colorado mergers and acquisitions brokers. Please inquire about our Colorado mergers and acquisitions team who have assisted Colorado business owners in selling more than 320 businesses in 28 years.

We Will Sell Your Business for the Highest Price Possible

“Unfortunately, the 1st generation starts it (the business), the 2nd generation grows it, and the 3rd generation blows it”, author unknown.

As stated, owe mission is to get you the highest possible sales price.  This will only happen if we locate a “strategic buyer” who is either in your industry or a related industry and by “rolling you up” they will benefit exponentially, or at least much more than a traditional buyer.  Also, it is also best to find that 1 buyer that sees the “gold in your company going forward”.   All other buyers want to beat your sales price down and give you a multiple of say 2-3 X’s the last 3-5 worst years you have.

As you would expect, there are different types of potential buyers: some may want your employees, some want to take out a competitor, some want your location, another wants an opportunity to take the business to the next level, and another may want to combine it with their business. It is the last 2 where you will find your highest price, again based upon perceived value.

Although we exclusively represent business owners in the sale of every business, we work very closely to educate the buyer to help them identify and unlock all the potential of the business.

Through these methods, we have taken over business listings from other brokers that sat on the market for 1-2 years with no offers and then sold them in just 2-3 months for 50%-80% more than the original broker could NOT get for the seller.  In fact, we have successfully sold for a high price many businesses that were being shut down or were about to be sold to a weak or unsuitable buyer for a rock bottom price.

The title of our workshops is called “How to sell your business for 30% more, 50% more, 70% more”.

Remember, it is always best to sell your business when YOU are ready.  Don’t get caught in a position to have to sell when it is not the best time or the best value.  Sell when you have the wind in your back, coming off a great year of profits, a strong pipeline of well-bid work for the new owner to step into, etc.  But most importantly, you never want to sell due to the loss of key employees, customers, an unforeseen medical expense.

There are three basic reasons that people sell their business:

1. They’re in trouble, and they need to get out.

2. They get approached by a prospective buyer who wants to move quickly.

3. They’ve simply decided they are ready to sell

It is for these reasons that when selling businesses, “I’ve been affectionally called “Dr. Exit”, says Paul Olsen, CBG Owner.  I absolutely love what I do and am proud to have made a measurable difference in peoples’ lives”.

This is all about ensuring that you plan your sale so that someday you can leave your business in style.

  3. “Other Brokers” suffer a 30% to 35% sale price reduction between listing and closing sales price. Here, the business owner suffers the most, in a reduced sales price.

Over the years Company Brokers has enjoyed substantially better results:

  1. We strive to sell businesses within 5-6 months, vs. 12 months for other brokers
  2. In the past we have sold an estimated 8 out of 10 business listings we attempt to sell, vs. just 1-2 out of 5 for the average broker
  3. We negotiate aggressively for you. Often, we have been able to get our sellers more money than the listed sales price. This can be significantly more money than what other brokers secure for their business sellers.

There are 2 reasons for our consistent success in selling businesses ‘quickly and quietly’ and often for greater money vs. other business brokers and Mergers & Acquisitions professionals, and without breaching confidentiality during the sales process.

  1. We already have thousands of buyer relationships. To be clear, we don’t represent buyers, but we have spent over 10 years cultivating over 6,000 buyer relationships throughout the country that have a strong interest and in buying a business. These buyers have contacted us on 1 or more occasions to review our business listings. They really like the sales packets that we create and often comment how helpful and useful our videos are to help them understand the business offering and quickly determine their interest level. This saves them tremendous time.
    Compare this approach to other brokers who “have to go out and get the buyers” for a new business listing. Instead, We can quietly and privately present your business to a select group of buyers that we already know are strongly interested to buy a business and move swiftly to close.
  2. Other brokers often have to do 10 or more “showings” to get an offer for the business owner. We only do showings after a potential buyer has watched our comprehensive videos detailing the business for sale. This eliminates unnecessary foot traffic coming through your office that other brokers would be bringing in and saves you time.

This can also dramatically reduce the chance of breaching confidentiality. If we set a meeting for you with a buyer, we already know the buyer has seen the business video and learned much about YOU company than what other broker’s marketing packages typically provide. In the end, this ensures that YOU will have fewer showings, wasted less time, and with have a much better chance to meet a buyer that is a serious buyer about YOUR company!

We offer financial advice, selling businesses and structuring transactions.

We head up a team of experienced Denver Business Brokers and Mergers and Acquisitions specialists.

Working with a professional business brokerage team can greatly enhance the gross sales price of your business sale. The closer you examine the arena of selling a business, the more apparent it becomes that Company Brokers should be your first choice. Our office in Denver, Colorado concentrates on businesses whose annual gross revenues are between $1,000,000 and $50,000,000.

We have worked with business owners in a wide range of industries. Our team has conducted over 200 educational seminars throughout the Colorado Springs, Colorado Metro Area and The Front Range of Colorado on a wide range of business topics.

Call for a complimentary dinner seminar.

The main subject is “How to Sell my Denver Business”. Call the Company Broker office at (303) 382-1900 for dates and locations. Your business may be worth more than you imagine. Getting the best price when you sell your business is our top priority.

If you are thinking of selling your company… you need a professional advisor in Denver Colorado area who specializes in the sale of middle-market (AKA: “Sell Business, small to mid-size”). Company Brokers has the advantage.

Are you considering the sale of your Denver company in the near future? Contact us, we will discuss any issues you might have, and provide an evaluation of your firm’s marketability in today’s buyer climate. We will maintain strict confidentiality and not discuss your inquiry with anyone unless you specifically authorize us to do so.

Given time, the value of most businesses can be increased through some fairly easy steps. Also by making these adjustments to prepare your company for sale, the process will go quickly and smoothly. It is best to start preparing your company for sale at least 1-2 months before presenting it to buyers.

What distinguishes Company Brokers from other brokerage companies is that we have a private database of over 6,000 “current” buyers and private equity groups that stand ready to buy businesses. Because of this, we can often sell a business by creating a match with buyer candidates without having to “advertise” it which may breach confidentiality.

In addition to all of this, we supplement our efforts with marketing and advertising your business for sale. BUT we ALWAYS “mask” the business in such a way that buyers cannot determine that it is you that is selling UNTIL we disclose your company name; and this is ONLY after they sign out Confidentiality Agreements forms.

Often, we create a controlled auction among 3-5 buyers which allows us to sell your Denver business quickly and quietly, and for a higher price and better terms. Unlike other mergers and acquisition professionals who charge $10,000 to $50,000 or more before they attempt to sell your business, we typically charge no up-front fees. We earn a commission upon closing the sale.

WE typically do NOT charge up-front fees. We get paid WHEN YOU close the deal.

The goal and interests between the business owner and broker are completely aligned. You’ve worked many years to build the business!

If you are thinking of selling, Doesn’t it make sense to spend 1 hour to explore how we can help sell your Denver business faster and for a greater sales price than anyone else?

If you are thinking of selling your company, you need a professional advisor in the Denver area who specializes in the sale of middle-market businesses. Company Brokers, a Denver Business Broker, has this experience.
