A seller needs to be realistic about pricing, be ready to let go, and ready to sell when the opportunity occurs. Failure to fulfill these three conditions will make the journey to a business sale a rough one.
Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
The leading trucking industry consultation firm, Ahern & Associates, has announced three additional letters of intent for their merger and acquisition division. Building on their announcement of a record first quarter for acquisitions this year this announcement demonstrates the breakneck speed with which trucking companies are being consolidated.
Ahern CEO, Andy Ahern, stresses that there are some steadfast conditions on the seller’s side that must be met, if a sale is to realistically occur. A seller needs to be realistic about pricing, be ready to let go, and ready to sell when the opportunity occurs. Failure to fulfill these three conditions will make the journey to a business sale a rough one.
To further help business looking to sell, Ahern has also announced a new pre-audit process. The pre-audit process includes a facility visit, a “mock” buyer review, as well as advice on how to reduce operating costs, and how to address any business characteristics that may discourage potential buyers from moving forward with a purchase. The intent is to ensure that when the time comes for deals to be made that it progresses smoothly for everyone involved. Ahern’s advice is one of the best ways for a potential seller to not only fully understand what to expect in a sale, but also how to properly prepare.
Ahern & Associates has also announced that they are so confident in their pre-audit process as a means to prepare the way, that if a potential seller is matched with an Ahern client and the deal closes, Ahern will refund the initial consulting fee once Ahern is paid by the buyer. As the leading consultants in the trucking industry for more than twenty-five years, it is not hard to see where this confidence comes from.
