One of the most important, if not THE most important, considerations when selling a business is the significance of confidentiality. It’s understandable that as a business owner, you wouldn’t want the “whole world” to know your business is for sale. After all, you’ve worked hard to create a positive working environment for your employees, you’re continually trying to bring in new customers and you already have many established relationships in the field; so, you’d never want to do anything to jeopardize this.
As business brokers, we understand that marketing a business, while still maintaining confidentiality, is a very fine line. All prospective buyers we work with are first required to fill out an inquiry form; we then qualify the buyer extensively before finally moving on to the signing of a confidentiality agreement. Protecting your privacy is every bit as important to us, as it is to you.
