Who We Are

Morgan & Westfield, Business Brokers of Salem, Oregon. Selling a business is a long and complex process that many find intimidating. We strive to help our clients as they go through the process of selling their businesses. We have a team of highly experienced business brokers at our Salem, Oregon office of Morgan & Westfield.

As a business owner, you know that selling your business is an opportunity to reap the rewards of your labor. When you consider all of the time, money, and effort that you have invested in building your business, you can’t afford to squander this opportunity.

The best way to ensure a successful transaction is by entrusting the sale of your business to our expert intermediaries.

How Morgan & Westfield Can Benefit You

Selling your business through our brokerage team at our Marion County office ensures that your business is sold successfully. Our business brokers go beyond the call of duty. Morgan & Westfield can provide you with the technical services that are at the core of any business sale.

These include business valuations, marketing, buyer screening, a performance of due diligence , assistance with securing financing and structuring the sale. Through our handling of these complex tasks, we make the sales process easier for you.

Business sales are stressful. You are going through a process that you probably have never experienced before. You may not know what to expect or how to react if unexpected obstacles arise.

Our business brokers will answer your questions and guide you through the sales process so that you are never left wondering what the next step is. We will advise you on how to handle any unforeseen situation. When armed with the knowledge and the expert support you need, selling a business becomes less stressful.

Confidentiality in the Sale of Your Business

One of the most common concerns that business owners have is confidentiality. In a competitive marketplace, it is essential that your business is sold in a way that maintains confidentiality. Failure to do so can damage your business in many ways:

  • Suppliers may be hesitant to continue to work with you.
  • Employees may begin looking for other employment or become less committed to their jobs.
  • Customers may take their business to a competitor.
  • Opportunistic competitors may view your impending sale as an opportunity to gain market share.

Each of these outcomes can make your business more difficult to sell and decrease your business’s value. At Morgan & Westfield, our business brokers take steps to ensure that your confidentiality isn’t compromised.

We have internal policies that prevent confidentiality breaches, so your information is always secure. Our firm will also advise you on steps you can take to ensure that your business is sold discreetly.

We provide you with standard non-disclosure agreements so that anyone with knowledge of the sale is contractually required to maintain your privacy. At Morgan & Westfield, we protect the sensitive information you entrust to us.

Getting a Fair Price for Your Business

When selling your business, a primary concern is pricing your company at a fair price that will sell. Our brokers at our Salem, Oregon office can help optimize the selling price of your business. Businesses that are sold privately usually sell below their market value .

At Morgan & Westfield, we will ensure that this does not happen to your business. Our business brokers will connect you with quality buyers and help you negotiate the best possible deal. We can also offer an appraisal of your business that will yield the best possible selling price for your company.

Securing the Sale

One of the most overlooked aspects of any business sale is the fragile nature of the transaction. Simply finding a buyer, financing the sale, agreeing to terms, and securing a down payment do not always constitute a successful sale.

This is particularly important in situations in which seller financing is involved in the sale. In such cases, the company must continue to operate to its potential, even after ownership is transferred. This is to ensure that the new owner can fully repay the seller.

If a business does not continue to operate successfully or the buyer defaults on payments, then a business has not been sold successfully. The same is true if there are problems with the terms or structure of the sale that result in contractual breaches or legal battles.

All of these situations should be avoided at all costs. Working with our business brokers is the best way to avoid these problems and ensure that your company is sold in a way that is conducive to long-term success.
