I would certainly recommend VR and would use them again if I had the need. They kept their promises, worked hard and sold my business to a buyer from across the country. Choosing VR was one of the best decisions I ever made with my business.
Mohan and Troy at VR were great to work with. The entire process was great. They really know their business.
Troy - thank you for all your hard work with eSupplyStore. I know we found the right buyer at the right price. I don't see how the process could have gone any smoother.
VR did an excellent job of selling my franchise. This is actually the second time that I have used their services and I have been impressed both times.
I owned the Health Gazette for over 30 years and it was important for me to find the right buyer. VR gave us a fair market value for the business and sold it for exactly that amount. I could not have been more pleased.
VR really took the time to understand my needs. I think their expertise was a big reason the transaction happened.
VR stood out from the competition. They were the best fit when it came to selling my business.
I was extremely impressed with VR. They approached the sale of my business with a very professional system. I knew my business wasn't large, but I still got a high level of service. I would certainly recommend VR to anyone thinking about selling their business.
I hired VR to sell me construction company. They worked hard through the whole process and found the right buyer. They did a great job and I would use them again.
I wanted to send a note and thank you for all your hard work. This has been a great experience and I really enjoyed working with VR.
Pure Air Systems
I tried other brokers in town and they just put some ad in the newspapaer and it didn't result in much.
VR did a very good job for us. They set the price for my business, found the buyer, and worked through all the details.
Commercial Business Systems
I first used another brokerage company to try and sell my business, but it did not work. VR was totally different, very professional and they sold my business for almost full asking price.
VR exceeded my expectations in selling my online business. I got the full asking price of the business. We got several offers within the first couple of weeks. The entire process took less than 6 weeks from start to finish.
Selling a Business - Services
Selling a business at any price is a tough proposition. When you work with VR Indiana Business Brokers, you get a long list of benefits that help your business stand out in a crowd and sell for maximum value.
Our "secret" is hard work. When we represent a client, we do the hard, detailed work required well in advance of taking the company into the marketplace. We firmly believe that you only have one chance to make a good first impression on a Buyer, and we don't believe in squandering any opportunity. Please review the short summary of our services for Indiana business sellers below. Keep in mind, we never charge an upfront fee for our services.
Business Sales Services
Valuation & Pricing. Have you ever wondered what your business is worth? We provide a professional estimate of the fair market value of your business, whether you need an informal estimate to satisfy your curiosity or a rigorous appraisal for legal and accounting purposes.
Market and Buyer profiling. We look at both the competitive landscape and market to determine how best to position our client’s company and what buyer sectors make most sense to target - Financial Acquirers, Private Equity Firms and Strategic/Corporate Acquirers are reviewed and the appropriate targets are selected.
Packaging. We put together a "Confidential Business Profile" with detailed information about your business. This profile typically has hard copy, Internet/ PDF and in some cases video formats to present your business in the clearest light.
Marketing. Specific internet Merger & Acquisition and Business Opportunity Sites are utilized to reach those financial buyers that are ACTIVE in the market – blind announcements or listings are utilized to protect confidentiality. Targeted direct mail and print advertising are also utilized when appropriate. For companies that we believe would appeal to Strategic Buyers we produce a Market Sector Analysis. For Private Equity and Corporate Buyers we spend time finalizing our targets so we can then implement a direct marketing campaign to the CEO’s we have selected as our top tier targets. We also have over 3000 qualified Indiana buyers in the VR database that we contact on behalf of our sellers.
Buyer Screening. We interview prospective buyers to eliminate those who are unable or not ready to purchase a business at this time, and to screen out competitors or others with suspect intentions. We obtain a signed Confidentiality Agreement and Net Worth Statement from every prospective buyer.
Introduction/Meetings. Your business (disguised) is presented to qualified prospects first via telephone, Internet and in our office before bringing them to your business. This takes the burden off of you and your business by filtering out unlikely buyers. Once a serious, qualified, prospective buyer is found, we arrange a tour of the business and/or a meeting with you to cement the buyer's interests and give you an opportunity to learn about the buyer.
Financial Assistance. We have extensive experience with a wide variety of creative financing techniques. We also work with a network of lenders, who specialize in SBA loans and business loans, to assist you and the prospective buyer in structuring and securing the right financing package.
Offer to Purchase/Negotiation/ Offer Acceptance. We present the offer to you, along with detailed information on the background of the prospective buyer. Once both parties agree on terms, we have an "offer acceptance", but not a done deal. Nationwide, more than half of "offer acceptances" fail to progress to closing. At VR, our rate is much higher, because we know how to manage the subsequent critical steps.
Due Diligence. Nearly all offers are contingent upon the buyer's inspection and approval of many aspects of the business operation, such as financial records, equipment, contracts/ leases, licenses, inventory, etc. The handling of this "due diligence" phase of the process is critical to ensuring a successful sale. Real estate and equipment lease and any note assumptions are handled during this phase as well as all contingency removals.
Closing. At closing, money, title and possession of the business change hands. With proper planning and preparation, this step will go smoothly.
VR provides client companies with winning representation in the crowded world of business sales. You can depend on us.
