Who We Are

Jackson, Mississippi, Office of Morgan & Westfield. Are you retiring soon and looking into selling your business? At the Jackson, Mississippi, office of Morgan & Westfield, our team of highly experienced business brokers provides services designed to help you sell a business. When you own and operate a business, running it on a daily basis consumes most of your time. When it comes time to sell your business, it is important that you continue to fulfill these responsibilities. This, however, does not leave you much time to focus on selling your business. And selling your business can be equally stressful and time-consuming. For this reason, it is nearly impossible to do both of these things at the same time without neglecting one of these important activities.

That is why seeking professional assistance from business brokers provides a lot of advantages on your part as the seller.

Do You Know Your Company’s True Value?

One of the questions you might have in mind right now is, “What is my business worth?” The answer depends on several factors including inventory , assets, liabilities, current performance, past performance, projected future performance, competition and your overall position in the marketplace. Our business brokers can help you determine the value of your company and recommend an asking price as you prepare to sell your business. Other factors that impact the true value of your company include the following:

  • Economic Conditions: As with anything else in life, timing is key. In times in which the economy is struggling or your market is down, the value of your business will decrease. Likewise, when the market is thriving, the value of your business will increase. So it is important that the condition of your market is considered when your business is being valued.
  • Owner’s Ability: When you are a vital piece of your company’s daily operations, the value of your company will likely decrease. This is because it will be harder for a new owner to fill this role. And when you leave, the business’s daily operations will suffer. Likewise, when you, as the owner, do not play a major role in the company’s daily operations and you can be easily replaced, the company’s value will increase. When business owners sell their company on their own, this factor is often overlooked. The ability of your company to continue running after you have transferred ownership will impact your company’s value, so it is important that this is taken into account when your business is being valued.
  • Ability to Transfer All Property: Many businesses will rent or lease some of their property or equipment. This equipment and property are often vital to a company’s daily operations. So your ability to transfer rental agreements or leases to a new owner can greatly impact your company’s value. For example, if your location plays a vital role in your business and this property is leased, then a buyer will want to be able to assume your lease. If this cannot be transferred, the business’s ability to operate will suffer and your resale value will decrease.
  • Willingness to Finance: When you are willing to finance your own sale, you can command a higher price. This is because you can provide buyers with more favorable financing terms, and seller financing makes buyers feel more confident about the company’s future. This must be considered when your company is being valued.

These factors along with many others must be considered when your company is being valued and an asking price is being determined. Failure to consider all factors that impact your company’s ultimate value can result in an inaccurate valuation, costing you money and sales opportunities.

Why Is an Accurate Valuation of Your Business Essential?

Valuing your business accurately is absolutely essential. At Morgan & Westfield, our business brokers consider every possible factor and work to ensure that your business is valued accurately. Failure to accurately price your business can cause you to price yourself out of the market. This can prevent quality buyers from even considering purchasing your business. Aside from causing you to develop unrealistic expectations about your company’s value, it can also cause you to appraise your business below its true value, preventing you from fully capitalizing on your company’s sale.

Accurately valuing your business can mean the difference between a successful sale and an unsuccessful sale. Given the high stakes involved, do not take a chance on inaccurately valuing your company. Contact the Jackson, Mississippi, office of Morgan & Westfield and learn more about how we can ensure that your business is valued accurately.
