Expanded M&A Markets and Expanded Focus
The latest expansion also comes at a time when many businesses are looking to sell their positions of ownership and move on to life’s next adventure. Retiring baby boomers, who currently make up about twenty five percent of the entire United States population will be retiring over the coming decade, causing a great deal of movement in the buying and selling of companies in those markets.
With the expansion to Salt Lake City, Utah, the company is also refocusing on the market segments where experience has helped the founders grow the company the most. Namely, manufacturing, aerospace, healthcare, software, financial services, lumber, logistics, and oil & gas have all played a role in the businesses’ growth in the past.
Valuations & Marketing Development
As part of Deal Capital’s desire to expand into this new market, they help existing businesses who may not have a desire to sell for some time, prepare their companies so as to take advantage of market swings and sell when the time is critically right.
For instance, an entrepreneur who may be looking to sell a business within the next two to five years can find benefit by soliciting Deal Capital’s expert business valuation team. First, the team will look at the business from several different angles to help determine what the business is worth utilizing several corporate valuation techniques. Next, the company will propose a range in which the founders may be comfortable selling the company. If the range is not met, the sellers may wish to keep working the business for several more years until the company either grows large enough or can be sold for more than the initial valuation.
Without valuing the business, potential sellers may be unable to gauge what their businesses is worth, when it may be time to sell the company and what the maximum value of the business might be if they company were to be sold today. In many instances, investment bankers find that business owners are much too high on the values they place on their businesses. Having an expert consultant in your corner to train you on what produces value can be helpful, especially when it comes time to negotiate with the buyer.
