Market Timing - A Critical Consideration When Selling A Business

Host David Karnofel

Many business owners feel the performance of their business, revenues, profits etc. are the key drivers behind the value of their company. Although you certainly can’t ignore those valuable characteristics of any business, what many fail to consider is the impact the market can have on their value. Yes, market timing can impact the value of a business as much or more than any other single factor. Not unlike the ultimate value of a product or service sold anywhere, the value of a business is determined by a basic economic principle.

In this webinar, we’ll talk about:

  • The basic economic principle that drives value
  • Sellers Markets vs. Buyers Markets
  • How do changing markets affect value
  • The timing around changing markets
  • A view of historical markets
  • Market “Interrupters”
  • What if I miss the market

There is an alternative! Working with the right firm, acting as your trusted partner to advise you in regards to what the market may be saying about your business, what it would take to make your business more attractive and most important, when is the right time to “strike while the iron is hot” in the right market.
