Q: Is my small, privately held business ($500K to $5 mil revenue) salable?
A: Yes, there is a market if the right factors exist. There are many individual buyers looking to buy businesses (essentially buying a job). Corporate buyers will buy small companies to grow as opposed to organic growth (one customer at a time). Our business is identifying the attributes that make a company salable, developing a compelling purchase scenario, and then confidentially creating a market to get the best price. A single buyer is not a market and a one-on-one deal will likely result in less than fair market value.
