Our Approach to Selling a Business – The Difference that Makes Select Business Brokers Santa Monica Successful Santa Monica Business Brokers

We sell Financial Models. When we sell a business, it is less important that we are selling a Restaurant or a Wholesale Distributor or…whatever it may be. For the purpose of a business cash flow sale, we are selling a Financial Model. The heart of a business sale is the financial issues. Cash Flow, Earnings Stability, Growth Strategy, Competition, Capital Efficiency, Threats, Purchase Value, Acquisition Financing, History of the Business. The Financial Model perspective is ultimately what influences the buyer’s decision because in essence, the buyer is buying a financial model. We add value by understanding how the cash flows through the business, how the business utilizes the capital, how the business interacts with the external and internal environment. We identify the key financial issues and communicate to the buyer (sometimes via financial modeling) where the low risk or no risk, high return areas are and how the business performs in relation to other businesses. We keep the deal moving by helping the seller or buyer quantify (express in terms of hard cash) and rate an apparent risk or benefit. It is human nature to feel more comfortable when a risk or benefit is understood in more precise terms. From the business sale financial perspective we are experts. Selling the Financial Model is how we add value.

As a deal progresses past the initial superlatives, handshakes and happy answers it gets into the real nitty-gritty…Due Diligence. The interested buyer is making make a high stakes decision and needs to carefully evaluate the benefits and risks of the acquisition. Poorly explained surprises or bad information here can create unwanted tension or explode weeks or months of everyone’s hard work. This is where we earn our commission. It is our job to fully understand the key financial aspects of the business. We anticipate potential problems to the transaction and implement solutions early on so the problem doesn’t later become an unwanted surprise. This is where Select Business Brokers makes the difference. This is where we earn the commission. This is how we sell. This is why we are successful Santa Monica Business Brokers.

Please notice that we do not say anywhere that we “represent” or are an “intermediary” or simply “introduce the buyer and seller”. We are not “advisors” and we are not “consultants”. We do not believe that “exposure” gets the deal done. Where is the responsibility in those descriptions? We said we sell the business. That is precisely what we mean. In our vernacular selling the business means “sell the business!” We are expert salespeople. We sell. We communicate. We get along with our clients. We believe in what we are selling. We take responsibility for the success of the transaction from start to finish. We are active, we are aggressive, we are proactive and we make every effort we can to get the deal done.
