3 Tips for Business Owners and Business Sellers – July 2020

3 Tips for Business Owners and Business Sellers – July 2020

Since the outbreak of Covid-19,  the business brokerage / investment banking world seems to change dramatically every 30 days.

As we enter the middle of summer, here are three tips we are giving business owners and business sellers:

 

1. After the 30 to 45 Day Shut-Down Starting in Mid-March, There is a Market Again  

But, banks and institutional lenders have gotten much more cautious, taking marginal buyers out of the market.

We are qualifying prospects more carefully so we do not risk wasting a lot of time on transactions that cannot be financed.

We do recommend that if you receive a good offer, take it seriously as it will be harder to obtain as many offers as before this started.

 

2. Run Your Business Like You are Going to Own It Forever Particularly During a Sale Process

Your best negotiation strategy is that you are making money and will keep running it if you must.  Be profitable every day.

Clearly, due to current circumstances, some businesses cannot do that.  They should not sell at this time unless they do not have a choice.   Unfortunately, there are going to be a lot of unavoidable bad outcomes due to Covid.

If your business is in the middle ground, make the tough choices and get pricing up if necessary. Always work toward having your costs in line with your likely revenues.

 

3. Good Companies will Attract Buyers

The discount you will need to give from your February 2020 price is going to depend on the uncertainty in your industry, your supply chain, your customer concentrations etc.

The sense of risk has been elevated.  How high that perceived risk is will vary from no perceived increase in risk with liquor stores to incredible going concern risk with high end sit down restaurants.

Most businesses are somewhere in the middle and it appears they can sell with price reductions that make sense compared to the increase in risk.  Buyers and sellers may consider forms of risk sharing through earn outs and the like.

If you would like to learn the value of your business as you make important decisions, please connect with us. We would be happy  to discuss your business’ market appeal.

With Simple Adjustments, Harvest Continues Doing Business

With Simple Adjustments, Harvest Continues Doing Business

There is no denying that the Corona Virus Pandemic has dramatically changed the way we live and the way we do business. However, the Harvest Business team is encouraged that business transactions are continuing, although they are being handled slightly differently.

 

Case in point: Harvest Business Advisors Partner Richard Stopa recently held a buyer-seller meeting with seven people, with social distancing and other CDC recommended best practices incorporated.

 

A very interested buyer wished to meet with the owners of a Virginia accounting practice that Richard represents. The first inclination might have been to postpone the meeting or conduct the meeting virtually.

 

However, the buyer is eager to move the potential purchase of the business forward. Richard was happy to work out arrangements that helped the buyer learn more about the business and also gave everyone involved a degree of comfort in conducting a face to face meeting.

 

The meeting took place on a Saturday when the sellers’ employees were not in the office so as to maintain the confidentiality of the potential transaction and also reduce the number of people in one setting.

 

The buyer party and seller party, along with Richard, met in a very large open area of the sellers’ office where there was plenty of air circulating. All parties maintained proper social distancing (in this case actually 8 to 10 feet instead of the recommended 6-foot distance). We provided ample hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and other cleaning products. All parties, of course, wore face masks.

 

The only real difficulty was the limitations of the face masks. The parties couldn’t see each other’s entire faces (and expressions) and the masks muffled the conversation a bit, a minor inconvenience.

 

All told, the meeting was very positive. And the transaction will continue to move forward.

 

This meeting proved that business with our clients can be successfully conducted during a pandemic as long as all parties are cautious, flexible and open-minded.

 

Look for the transaction to be announced here in the near future.

 

And, if you would like to discuss any of the current business listings Harvest has posted or chat about listing your business for sale, we are ready to move forward with you.
