Denver Business Broker – Denver, CO

Denver Business Broker Paul OlsenCan Help you Avoid Big Mistakes In Buying Or Selling A Business in the Denver, Colorado area!

To sell or buy a Denver Business – it only makes sense to use a native, Denver Business Broker!

From the Seller’s Side:

In most cases, the business broker or (M&A) expert is listing the business for sale. In most cases, the business broker is representing the seller and is obligated to represent the seller honestly and fairly. A business broker is also charged with trying to get the highest possible price – and the best terms for the seller.

Sellers must understand that, no matter how hard the business broker tries, it is the buyer environment and the quality of the sales package that largely determines the price and terms – not the business broker or the seller.  However, a Denver business broker like Company Brokers can be effective at aggressively negotiating the BEST deal for the seller.

A solid and competent business broker will craft the finest sales packet to attract the highest level of buyer interest possible. The broker will also keep the seller informed, on a regular basis, of the status of the listing and will do everything possible to maintain the confidentiality concerning the sale of the business.

However, selling a Denver business is a two-way street and requires cooperation on both sides – the seller and a Denver business broker. The broker needs to be kept aware of current information regarding the business, such as sales trends, industry trends, changes in the financial performance, major equipment purchases, inventory fluctuation, etc.

The broker and the seller must work together – they are on the same side, and they should work as a team. Finally, a good broker will take no money up-front. This is the way we operate. Strong and capable brokers require no up-font fees and instead take their pay once the deal is closed. The commission or fee should be negotiated clearly up front before the process starts. The broker and seller’s interest should be 100% aligned; the higher the sales price, the greater the fee/commission.

From the Buyers Side

The advantages of a buyer in working with aDenver business broker are the many opportunities that can be presented to the Denver buyer. Many buyers may think they want a certain kind of business, but, in all fairness, they often have no idea of the various businesses that may be available – in the Denver area.

Professional business brokers bring value to the process of buying and selling companies. They understand the issues and the details involved in the business transaction. They have the knowledge and experience to bring the sale to a successful close.

If the buyer and seller are honest with the Denver business broker – a win-win situation will result. In return, business brokers need a seller who is really a seller and a buyer who is really a buyer. Buyers and sellers should have high expectations about what a Denver business broker can offer. At the same time, the business broker has the right to have the same expectations from them.

Almost all businesses include the following:

  • Fixtures and equipment
  • Inventory (or stock-in-trade)
  • Accounts Receivable and Working Capital.

In addition, it is possible that a business might include one or more of the following:

  • The real estate at the location of the business
  • Customer and/or mailing lists
  • Patents/copyrights
  • Non-competes.
  • Large heavy equipment and vehicles, etc.
  • Proprietary software or other technology

All of these components and others may have a positive or negative effect on the asking, and ultimate, selling price of the business.
Anyone who is considering selling – or – buying a business wants to know the advantages of using the services of a business broker or a Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) expert.
