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 Arizona 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 Colorado 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 Arizona and Federal law. As a final step, an agreement for the purchase will be reached, normally in the form of a written contract. It should be reviewed by all parties to ensure that what was agreed upon is 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 can use the business property as it sees fit. The right of control can be separated easily from the business, and this often leads the buyers in Colorado to be less interested in other rights within the company. In fact, buyers generally leave other rights, such as the right to future earnings, with the sellers so that they can acquire control more cheaply. Negotiations during the sales process are vital, and they should be used as an opportunity to voice fully each party?s intentions and concerns.
