Who We Are

Morgan & Westfield, Business Brokers of Shreveport, Louisiana. Selling your business can be an incredibly rewarding experience. This is your big opportunity to cash in on your years of hard work, sleepless nights, and countless hours. After all of the time, money, and effort that you have invested in your company, you deserve to reap the rewards.

However, for the sale of your business to be as rewarding as it should be, it must be sold in a way that is conducive to your sale’s long-term success. Simply securing a down payment or having a buyer sign a sales agreement is not enough.

You want your company to continue to thrive and provide a source of employment for all of your employees. You also want your buyer to be able to successfully repay the debt that they incur when they purchase your business.

The best way to make sure that these things happen is to sell your company through our professional business brokers at our Shreveport, Louisiana office of Morgan & Westfield.

Successful Business Sales

Shreveport may be known to locals as “Hollywood South”, but we just think of it as the place to successfully close business sales. Our brokers at Morgan & Westfield maintain a high standard when it comes to determining if a sale is truly successful or not.

We require more than a down payment, a signed sales contract, and transfer of ownership to consider a sale successful. Our brokers instead choose to place an emphasis on your sale’s long-term success. Our criteria for a successful sale includes:

  • A signed sales contract, with all buyer and seller obligations completed in a timely manner.
  • A secured down payment and an agreement to financing terms.
  • Successful transfer of all company property, permits, leases, and equipment.
  • Successful training of buyers so that they are prepared to operate the company on a daily basis.
  • Your company is sold to a buyer that is capable of operating it.
  • Your business remains productive so that current employees can maintain their positions.
  • The buyer successfully makes their payments and ultimately complies with all financing terms.
  • The sale is structured properly, avoiding legal disputes or problems that can impact the sale.
  • Your company continues to function and contribute to the local economy.
  • The business continues to grow and prosper even after it is sold.

These considerations help to optimize the immediate success of selling your business as well as improve the long-term implications.

Striving For a Successful Sale Well After the Closing

You undoubtedly have relationships with your employees. You want to see them continue to have an employment opportunity, even after you are no longer their boss.

After all of your hard work in building your company, you also understandably care about the enterprise you’ve built; you want to see it continue even after you are no longer own it.

When you sell your business through Morgan & Westfield, we understand that you feel this way and we take these factors into consideration. We want you to rest assured that once your company is sold, all of your hard work will not be wasted.

Outside of caring for your employees and your business, there are also financial reasons to consider factors beyond the day of closing. This is particularly true when sellers finance their own sale.

After all, for a buyer to repay you, your company needs to remain productive. If it is not productive and it ultimately closes, then your buyer may be unable to complete their repayment obligations. This can cause them to default on their loan and result in a legal battle.

In situations like this, the courts often return ownership of the company to you. But, if your business has not been run successfully, then regaining ownership of your company may cost you more money.

So it makes sense to place yourself in the best possible position. This is one of the biggest reasons why you should sell your company through our brokers at Morgan & Westfield. You want to focus on the dream of enjoying the fruits of your labor.

Selling to High-Quality Buyers

Selling a business is not like selling a car, house, or any other product; you cannot just sell to anyone. You must be selective and make sure that your buyer has certain qualifications, including:

  • They are financially capable of making the down payment.
  • They have the knowledge or background to actually run the business successfully.
  • They have a history of successfully repaying their debts.
  • They are legitimately interested in purchasing your company and they take the sale seriously.
  • They are willing to maintain the sale’s confidentiality (through signing a non-disclosure agreement).
  • They are willing to pay a price that is commensurate with market value.

If your buyer does not meet these standards, then they probably are not a high-quality buyer. Selling to a low-quality buyer is a recipe for an unsuccessful business sale and a disaster down the road.

For this reason, our brokers make it a point to screen all potential buyers that are interested in purchasing your business. By only providing you with high-caliber buyers, we are able to expedite the sales process and get a higher price for your business.

We ensure that all potential buyers are properly vetted and you are only connected to the best possible buyers. Our Caddo Parish business brokers work to make sure that your company is sold successfully.
