Selling a business after years of work can be extremely 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?

To sell a business there must be an offer, whether it is solicited or not. Purchase agents in Van Buren not only help to secure an offer, but also lends advice about which offers are worthwhile to consider. Determining 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. Lastly, an agreement will be reached in the form of a written contract. All parties should review the contract to ensure that it reflects a complete understanding of what the parties have agreed.

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 can use the business property as it sees fit. Since buyers in Van Buren are typically concerned with acquiring control, they may be willing to allow other rights, such as the right to future earnings, to remain with the seller in exchange for the cheapest price on the right of control. Negotiations during the sales process are vital, and they should be used as an opportunity to voice fully each party?s intentions and concerns.
