If you are the owner of a business, or the potential buyer of a business, you need to know the answers to the following questions: When is the right time to sell? When should I buy? How do I get the company ready to sell? What is a company worth? What is the equipment and records worth? How do I attract buyers? How do I limit the amount of taxes I have to pay? How do I as new owner become successful after the sale? How do I preserve my good name after the sale? Most professional’s only buy or sell a company once in their lifetime. Make sure you understand how the game is played before you make a costly mistake.

Many of the existing companies will be sold over the next ten years as many surveyors and engineers reach retirement age. Getting a company ready for sale can take a number of years, including finding or developing buyers, finding funding sources, and making the transition to new ownership. Don’t wait too long to get started, the owners who plan their exit from the company realize a better return on their investment.
