Exit Planning: Selby Associates can assist to identify the right time to leave your business so you may make a more profitable sale. The right time to get out is not dependent on the state of the economy or even your industry. It is, instead, highly dependent on your personal objectives and the state of your individual business. Many owners benefit from considering the reasons they went into business in the first place, whether their personal goals have been satisfied, whether they remain excited about running the business, and by looking at whether sales have been flat or declining in recent months. Selby Associates helps business owners answer these questions and make a decision about whether or not to sell your business.
Valuation: Before you sell your business, it is important to understand the approximate value of your business and any ways that you can effectively increase the value. Selby Associates will discuss your business, your goals for selling your business and request that changes be made if necessary, to make your business more profitable before listing it for sale. Selby Associates is an experienced and objective industry professional that will help you effectively market and attract qualified buyers for your business.
Good Financial Records: Another way to attract and qualified buyers is to keep good financial books. Once a qualified buyer has made an offer for your business that is acceptable to you, the buyer is going to conduct due diligence.

If the books are honest, complete, and easy to understand, then the buyer is likely to be more confident in the purchase of your business. Selby Associates, together with your accountant, will review and analyze your financial records including income statements, balance sheets, tax returns, inventory, assets, payroll, and real estate so that everything is accurate and well prepared for the buyer's due diligence review.
