You may have never thought about having a very confidential auction of your business as you have also thought that auctioning a business is for businesses that are in distress or are simply liquidating their assets; think again, our experience has taught us the auctioning of an established successful business, when executed properly, can be one of the best methods of acquiring willing, qualified buyers who are willing to pay a very competitive price for your business.
Golden Circle Advisors will guide and manage the business auction process to your ultimate benefit.
It may not be time to sell or you may just be curious about what your business is worth. However, there are also other reasons why a business owner might require a business valuation. Such personal matters as marital or partnership issues, estate planning or other reasons may require an actual business valuation that can be defended if litigation is a possibility. We have the knowledge and experience to advise in these matters and to prepare the business valuation if required.
Golden Circle Advisors has spent considerable time and money to be well informed regarding the options available for the financing of an acquisition. We also work with first time purchasers to help them find their dream business and provide advice on financing methods ranging from seller financing, to federal government sponsored Small Business Loans (SBA).
Our experience means we understand there are a variety of financing options for those who are seeking creative methods to a acquire their new business venture and we are glad to help.
At Golden Circle Advisors we are proud of our aptitude and skill sets in the area of Mergers & Acquisitions. Our combination of financial analytical skills, fundamental business knowledge and understanding of how to create an enterprise that can successfully navigate the challenges of bringing together two separate corporate cultures makes us one of the best choices for writing your M&A success stories.
Our skills in this area have been well developed. We understand the numbers, but we also understand much more than just the financial implications. Putting two separate entities together based simply on numbers has a higher likelihood of failure without understanding the differences in each entities corporate culture. Anyone can put a financial spreadsheet together, but the big job is merging corporate identities for the ultimate long term success of the new enterprise. GCA has the qualifications to make sure your acquisition is successful based upon the numbers and human resources that work together to make the investment pay off as it should.
Businesses valued between $100,000 to $500,000 are often the most difficult businesses to sell. These business owners have chosen the wrong approach to market their business’, either trying to sell them on their own; list them with a real estate professional or engage a business broker using the same method as they utilize with their larger clients.
Golden Circle Advisors has identified a need in this marketplace that requires an alternative approach to marketing these smaller businesses and has developed the Seller’s Advisory Service™ (SAS) Program. The SAS™ Program was designed to offer owners of these smaller businesses a more cost-effective way to market their business by using the expertise and tools available to business brokerage firms, but shares in the responsibility of managing the sale process.
