Selling a business is a complex and time consuming process. Our proven selling formula is designed to maximize the sale price while minimizing disruptions. That way you can remain focused on running your business. The process always starts with a valuation. We need to know the company’s value before we can start exit planning. We need a minimum of 3 years financial statements or tax returns to perform a valuation. We will conduct an analysis and follow up with a discussion of value. We use best practices and industry benchmarks to ensure accuracy and consistency. If you decide to move forward, at that point we formalize the listing and conduct a seller Q&A that will allow us to showcase the business. Once we have a thorough understanding of the business we will write a detailed CIM (Confidential Information Memorandum). We know how to write a CIM that get results. Once the CIM is approved, we are ready to go live! All public facing ads are anonymous. We pre-screen all buyers and require a NDA before releasing any business specific information. Listing time varies based on price and market conditions. On average it takes 1-6 months to receive an offer depending on our pricing strategy and the external market. We advertise across multiple channels to get as much exposure as possible. We put our heart into every listing.
Private Buyer Network
Lighthouse Business Brokers has cultivated a powerful buyer network with thousands of buyers that are specifically looking for high-quality businesses to acquire. Many of these buyers are serial entrepreneurs who have previously purchased one or more of our listings. The buyers in our database also include private equity firms, international buyers, and high net worth family offices that are looking for acquisition opportunities. We give these buyers a pre-market alert. Some of our listing sell before print. Our private network is a powerful tool that only our clients enjoy.
