Share Article

The March Group, a private mergers and acquisitions firm specializing in middle-market businesses, is publishing some specific factors to consider before selling a business.

The team of mergers and acquisitions experts at The March Group understands the importance of striking while the iron is hot in terms of buying or selling a business. This is why the firm is offering free advice for business owners thinking about selling their company. By considering the following factors, business owners can make sure it is a good decision to sell.

  • Consider whether your business value is ripe enough to sell in the current market for a price that will help you meet your financial goals.
  • Get a solid understanding of today‚Äôs small-to-medium business market. Policies are in place to ensure prosperity and growth for years to come, but some states are more advantageous to sell in than others.
  • Determine how to market a business to buyers looking for a more stable and predictable source of income than most traditional investments. A small or medium business can offer better returns than many other investments.
  • For those thinking of selling a business, it may be best to do so before the end of the year. After December 31, 2010, the historically low 15% capital gains tax will increase to 20% plus a surtax of 5.4%.
  • There are more buyers than sellers, even in the sluggish economy, but this will soon change. There are many baby boomers with healthy businesses who will soon want to sell before retiring, and when that day comes there will be more sellers than buyers.

The March Group can assist in all aspects of selling a business, from advertising to implementing an exit strategy to ensuring maximum value and smooth transitions. For more information, visit http://www.marchgroup.com/.
