The Various Options for Selling Your Business

March 29, 2021 by investor

There are several options for selling your business. Here are some of them:

Strategic – This is a buyer that buys your business as it provides strategic value for their company.

Financial  – This buyer looks solely at the financials, in particular, the cash flow, and buys the company without consideration to the strategic implications of their business.

Management team/Employee – This buyer works in the company and wants to own the business or continue to run it.

Competitor – This buyer is a competitor and wants to take your business off the market by merging it into their own.

Private equity – This is a buyer who plans to take over the business with a new management team and business plan. 

Generational transfer – This is typically a family member who wants to take over the business.
