How Saleable do you want Your Business 2014?
What are you waiting for? GET YOUR SCORE…

This week, we waited patiently for an offer that had been coming for two weeks. Monday it arrived. What a let down…

Don’t get me wrong. Getting an offer is the initial part of an equally as long process as finding the buyer in the first place. But when the offer comes in as lowball is this did, with the current owner indicating that it was nothing short of “an insult”, you can’t help wondering “why bother!”

Here’s the thing. There is a reason why an indicative price is placed on a business. And yes, there is always room to wriggle but seriously, when it’s so far away from the indicator, does a potential buyer really think that the owner will say “sure, here have it at that price?”

No, they won’t.

BS30 Online Venue Business

Completed Sellability Score
4 interested parties, with an update of the IM being done and a reenergised campaign. Will see a bit of movement on this one in April.

BS49 Home Help…

One party is very interested, with offer received. Another new party has appeared as well. This sale still has some play left to work out.
The potential has been well and truly revealed so it’s down to price and the level of comfort required to “pull the trigger”, as they say in the classics!

BS53 Balloons! and all that goes with them…

Such corporate appeal, so untapped. It’s waiting for the savvy operator that can see past the retail component and tap into it’s possibility as a warehouse servicing the larger players. Bit stuck on this one now!

Signed good to go. It’s making money! Have received signed authority’s and in the process of developing the IM now. The owner has been out of the country and is just getting back into the swing of things. Stay tuned.
