At Ledingham & Company we specialize in helping you, the business owner, with an exit strategy of selling your business for top dollar and doing so in a totally confidential way. We will value your business for free, using our 26 years of experience and the knowledge gained by selling hundreds of other businesses. If you are contemplating selling your business in the future, we will meet with you and counsel you on how to increase the value of your business for the time when you do decide to sell.
The financial and other pertinent information about your business will only be seen by Ledingham & Company or buyers that have signed a confidentiality agreement. We pride ourselves in the fact that most of the employees of businesses we sell don’t even know the business has been sold until after the closing. This way, the business runs along smoothly until the deal is closed. There are no up-front costs or fees. We receive a negotiated commission only when the sale is complete.
There are many facets to selling a business for top dollar such as proper licensing, environmental matters, helping the buyer obtain a Conventional or SBA loan at the best rate, working with attorneys and accountants to satisfy their requirements, securing the buyer’s approval of the financial documents of the business, and landlord negotiations if a lease is involved. If the business also involves real estate, Ledingham & Company will appraise and take care of the sale of this asset too!
We will market your business to the widest audience of buyers available, and all buyers that we work with will be pre-qualified, so that no one, especially you, is wasting his or her time with a person that can’t qualify to buy.
