What Do Buyers Really Want?

What Do Buyers Really Want?

Decision Associates Mergers & Acquisitions has the experience to know what business buyers really want.

We estimate that nearly 80 percent of business owners think that their business is worth at least one-third more than it really is. The reason for the over-optimism appears to be a lack of understanding of how a qualified buyer looks at your business.

Decision Associates Mergers & Acquisitions has found that qualified buyers with ready capital who are actively seeking to acquire a business want the following:

  1. Strong EBITDA
  2. Proprietary product or intellectual property
  3. Strong and diversified customer base and market presence
  4. A strong and deep management team
  5. A sales and marketing team and processes.
  6. Up to date facility, equipment and technology
  7. Systems and technology infrastructure
  8. Environmentally sound site

To learn more about each of these requirements, contact Decision Associates Mergers & Acquisitions.

"The Performance Review that Decision Associates created not only meets all of our needs but exceeded our expectations. We have been utilizing this format for several years now and have found the review easy to complete for both management and employees. The Performance Review is an interactive process that promotes employee engagement directly related to the primary responsibilities of each position and puts the employee in the driver's seat of their professional growth. This review process has proven to be meaningful to our employees demonstrated by employees talking about their review and the objectives they have set for themselves throughout the year."
