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 Arkansas 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 Dardanelle is not only to acquire an offer, but they also lend advice about which offers should be considered. Deciding the correct value for the rights you are selling is critical in this process. To do this, financial statements must be updated and prepared to comply with Arkansas and Federal law. A formal contracts will likely be written to solidify the sales agreement. Careful review of this agreement is crucial so that all concerns voiced during negotiations are accurately presented.

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 Dardanelle business may not be concerned with all aspects of the company. In fact, purchasers are usually 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.
