Facilitating Your Business’s Sale

Our business advisors at our Anchorage, Alaska, office of Morgan & Westfield will serve as your guide through the entire sales process, and they will either complete or assist you in completing each step in this process. Some of our primary services include:

  • Free consultations: Whether you have already begun the sales process or you are only starting to consider selling your business, our business advisors will provide you with a free consultation. This meeting is completely confidential and comes with no obligations. It is simply an opportunity for our advisors to learn more about your sale and how we can serve you. It is also a chance for you to learn about our services, ask questions, and know more about how you can benefit from selling your business through our business advisors.
  • Information: As a business owner, you probably have many questions, as you have never gone through the process of selling a business before. Our advisors will always be available to answer your questions and provide you with important information about the sales process for you to successfully sell your business.
  • Exit planning: If you have not yet begun the sales process, you should take the time to plan your sale and develop a sales strategy. When you utilize our exit planning services, our advisors will: discuss your options with you, help you develop a clear sales strategy, prepare you for your sale, and put you on a path to a successful sale.
  • Business appraisals: To accurately value your business and help you determine a reasonable asking price, our business advisors will perform a formal appraisal of your company. We will consider all factors that can impact your business’s value and summarize our findings in a formal business valuation report. This report will then be used to recommend an asking price, suggested down payment amount, and potential financing options.
  • Confidential marketing: To attract potential buyers to your sale, our advisors will create and implement a customized, confidential marketing campaign. This campaign will advertise your business’s sale using general information and prompt interested buyers to contact the Anchorage, Alaska, office of Morgan & Westfield if they are interested in learning more. Advertising your sale this way will protect your business’s privacy and maintain a discreet sale, while effectively attracting potential buyers to your company.
  • Buyer screening: Our business advisors will interview and screen all potential buyers who respond to our marketing campaign. In doing so, we will ensure that you are presented with qualified buyers who are capable of not only purchasing but also running your business. During the screening process, our advisors will also require prospective buyers to sign a non-disclosure agreement to ensure that your confidentiality remains protected.
  • Due diligence and offering documents: Any quality buyer who is legitimately interested in purchasing your business will want to do as much research into your company as possible. To facilitate this process, our advisors will create an offering document that will be provided to potential buyers who have signed a non-disclosure agreement. This document will summarize the important information about your company and facilitate your buyer’s due diligence process.
  • Negotiation assistance: Although our business advisors cannot negotiate your sale for you, we will prepare you for and guide you through the negotiation process. Our advisors will facilitate negotiations between you and your buyer and assist you in structuring potential deals.
  • Financing assistance: If your sale is being financed through an outside lending service, our advisors will utilize our contacts in the banking industry to expedite this process and secure funding. If you choose to finance your own sale, we will assist you in structuring your financing terms and establishing a debt service. If you have not yet decided which of these financing strategies you want to utilize, our advisors will discuss your options with you and help you make the decision that best fits your unique situation.
  • Closing services: After you and your buyer have reached a deal and financing decisions have been made, the closing process will begin. Our advisors will draft a sales contract containing the terms that both parties have agreed to. This contract will then be given to both parties, and once both have signed the sales contract, the sale will be closed. During this process, our advisors will help you collect and complete the necessary paperwork to finalize the sale. We will also ensure that all obligations in the sales contract are done in a timely manner.
  • Connections: If at any point in the sales process you encounter an unexpected obstacle that is beyond our business advisors’ expertise, we will connect you with the appropriate professionals. At the Anchorage, Alaska, office of Morgan & Westfield, we have connections to many industry professionals who can help you in these situations, including bankers, accountants, lawyers and tax professionals.
  • Advice: Throughout the entire sales process, our business advisors will provide you with continuous advice. We will make you aware of common seller mistakes and pitfalls to avoid, as well as prepare you for common obstacles to selling a business in your specific market. Our advice will be used to ensure a smooth and successful sales process.
  • Support: Our business advisors will always be there for you throughout the sales process. We will make sure that your questions are always answered and you have the support that you need to overcome any difficulties that may arise.
