Looking to Sell?

The first step in getting a business sold is to determine the Fair Market Value of the business. To accomplish this, we offer a fee service to prepare a Broker Opinion of Value to help determine your business’ Most Probable Selling Price.

In order to perform the Opinion of Value, we would need the following information:

  1. Full financial Statements for the past 5 years, along with the most recent interim statements
  2. A copy of your premises lease or details on the real property that is included in the sale.
  3. A complete list of business assets, furniture, fixtures, equipment, vehicles, etc. that will be included in the Purchase Price, along with the estimated fair, used replacement value of each item.
  4. A summary of existing equipment financing and leasing agreements (as applicable).
  5. The value of the Inventory, at landed cost, that will be included in the Purchase Price.
  6. Copies of any Franchise Agreements, License Agreements, Dealership Agreements and/or Distributorship Agreements (as applicable).

A brief history of the business to include:

  1. Information on your products and services, how you market them and to whom
  2. Information on your industry, company history, competitors, growth potential, etc.
  3. Any other information that you believe would be valuable in presenting your business in the most favourable manner
  4. Copies of your promotional materials

The above information will be kept strictly confidential and will be only divulged to qualified buyers that have signed a Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement.

At the conclusion of the Opinion of Value, we will be able to determine the Most Probable Selling Price for your business. With this information, we can advise you on the best possible Purchase Price and terms that your business will command in the current market.
