HOW THIS BOOK WILL HELP YOU
The decision to buy or sell a business requires careful consideration of the many factors involved. If you are a seller, these factors include preparing your business for sale and finding buyers. If you are a buyer, they include Due Diligence, pricing and financing your purchase.
Buying or selling is a complicated matter. There are problems of setting the price, finding prospects, evaluating offers and closing deals in a safe, legal and fair manner. There are pitfalls all along the way especially for the buyer.
This book raises some important questions relating to the process of buying or selling a small business. It is directed especially to the person interested in buying or selling a single proprietorship. However, it may be of interest as well to those concerned with partnerships or changes in corporate ownership.
