Selling a business after years of work can be very profitable. Many businesses are created with the hopes that they will one day be acquired by a larger firm. The sale can be complicated, however. There are Federal and Alabama laws concerning mergers, acquisitions, negotiations and securities exchanges that must be followed.

How Do I Sell a Business?

Of course, there must be an interested buyer with an offer in order to sell a business. The job of purchase agents in Phenix is not only to acquire an offer, but they also lend advice about which offers should be considered. During this process, the financial records must be updated and prepared in strict accordance with Alabama and Federal law. The reliability of these methods is necessary in determining the proper value for the rights you are selling. As an agreement for the purchase is reached, typically a formal contract will be written. It is important to review such documents before they are signed so that all aspects of the agreement are presented properly.

What Will I Give Up in the Business?

The sale of a business is simply the transfer of a right known as "control". The party with control of a business directs its operations and may use the business property as it sees fit. A party seeking to purchase a Phenix business may not be concerned with all aspects of the company. In fact, purchasers are typically interested in acquiring control as cheaply as possible, and this may allow other rights, including the right to future earnings, to be apportioned or even retained by the seller. These particularities make negotiations essential, during which each party should use the opportunity to voice their intentions and concerns.
