Attention Business Owners: Considering Selling But Still Have Some Fuel in the Tank? You Now Have an Option

By Keith Payne Licensed Business Broker, Sunbelt Business Advisor and Independent Insurance Specialists

Does this sound like you?

  • You’re somewhere between the ages of 40-60, have built a well-established, successful business over the past 20+ years and you’re not quite ready to retire. 
  • You still have some of the passion you had when you started, but always being a phone call away from something that needs your immediate attention is getting old. 
  • If only you could have an option to stay in the business but lose all the responsibilities and pressures that come with business ownership. 
  • Better yet, take some of your chips off the table, remain a partial owner for a period and get a second bite at the apple later upon exiting. 

With the recent revisions to SBA loans, this is now an option for you! That’s right, you now can sell all or a portion of your business, stay on in a capacity that best suits your lifestyle and possibly receive additional proceeds in the future.  In the past, this option was only available to larger businesses selling to private-equity, but now is available to you, the small to mid-size business owner.

At a minimum, you should know what your business is worth in today’s market.  This will get you a step closer to know what options you may have, and with these recent changes, you may have more options than you think!
