Having just returned from 10 days away, it’s most interesting to see what’s happening in the market.

Certainly, from a Business Broker point of view, it’s worth taking time off July/August as most Business Owners are too busy doing their EOFY activities to think about buying/selling businesses. It’s about now the phone starts ringing… and it has!

Just this week, my colleague had a call where they want to sell a number of franchises they currently own and create a new franchise in another industry. And they are prepared to fund it themselves, no need for banks. Seems to be a bit of a trend happening around the financing question at the moment. What we’re appreciating is that there is definitely money around to buy businesses, but the business has to be of quality to even be considered.

In fact, if banks have to get involved, there is every likelihood (unless they are franchise arrangements) that the banks won’t even look at the transaction (meaning they will look at it and then reject it) or expect that the home is used as security.

Are you prepared to do that? What choice do you have?

Had a most interesting day today…

First off was lunch with Head of Corporate and Commercial Banking and one of his senior lenders from one of the more State based banks. It was all about starting to think through what the pending issue with our growing 50 year old+ population with no career prospects is potentially going to look like and what opportunity there may be in the outcomes.  A most stimulating conversation and one where both sides learnt from each other. Hope to do it again.

The next stop was with a savvy lawyer in the commercial space. She requested to meet up for coffee as she is slowly but surely starting to see a need where her ageing clients should commence thinking about an exit strategy and are not. So, what then to do about it and how to get them to consider at least having an initial conversation. Again, most collaborative and ideally able to assist in the need for the sellers to do exit as successfully and as succinctly as possible.

Now… to work out the best way to bring both of the above parties together to sort out both their needs…

What constitutes a business buyer?

My colleagues and I stood at a whiteboard today and nutted out the profile stages of a Business Buyer, according to what their stage in life may look like. What with the growing demographic numbers of baby boomers slowly but surely coming on to mature-age,  the PM and Treasurers desire for all to work until 70 years old and the nature of the financial commitments families have made to lifestyle… there is a pot about to boil over!

Why? because the thinking that has got us to here cannot be the thinking that gets us out.

  1. will people be able to do the same work from 50?
  2. will people be able to do the same work until 70?
  3. will people have enough money to keep them in the lifestyle they’ve become accustomed to?
  4. will people maintain their health and wealth to live the life of choice?

In the current environments, maybe not…
What do you think?

Did some website renovation work today, including adding a few plugins in and changing some wording… even found an eBook to add to sell, which appears to be right on the money for what I’m looking for. Phew! Thought I’d end up having to writing it myself. Will get that added and see what happens. It’s all test and measure, lets face it!

Spoke to website owners again this week. They want to sell but when I give them an indicative price range, they don’t like what they hear especially if what they want is what they’ve spent on the website. And that’s because their online business is not profitable. And therefore not worth what they think it should be. And they get frustrated that I can’t see the “potential” in what they’ve built.

Bottomline is… whether I can see the potential or not, doesn’t matter! A buyer will not to pay for it if you haven’t been able to make it work yourself. 

So get cracking…

Quite a number of Business Buyers starting to make themselves known. In addition to a few more “Baby Boomers” looking to retire. The next few months will be most interesting… look forward to it!

Not much happening on the Business Sale front, as most businesses comes to terms with the end of financial year. Suspect though that the phone will start ringing again soon, as the realisation of the 2013-14 numbers comes to bear.

There’s been an upsurge in Sellability Score questionnaire completion, perhaps an indicator of what’s to come…
Especially given that more and more Buyers are making themselves known…
