When you decide to sell your business, your first instinct may be to tell the world. But hold on! If word gets out that your business is for sale, it could result in many problems.
What Could Happen?
- Employees may quit
- Vendors may look to sell their goods or services elsewhere
- Regular customers or clients may turn to your competition
Confidentiality is the key to having a seamless sale. Any disruption could be the reason a deal doesn’t go through. This is one of the many reasons why it’s a good idea to hire a business broker rather than handling it all on your own. A business broker can keep your sale confidential while marketing it to potential buyers.
