 A Note about the Financial Information

on this Web Site

All financial information has been provided by the Sellers. We cannot verify the accuracy or completeness of this information. No deal should be completed without the buyer having the opportunity to examine all aspects of the financials before actual purchase and being able to withdraw from the deal without penalty should he discover something not to his satisfaction. Often this is done simply by inserting ‘conditional upon the approval of my accountant’ into the offer or letter of intent. Verification of financial information is usually done after an accepted offer and before closing as part of the due diligence step in the transaction process. This timing is desirable for several reasons including protecting the Buyer from incurring fees to advisors prior to there actually being a conditional deal in place.

 Almost for Sale

 ‘Almost for Sale’ are businesses with owners who, for a variety of reasons, are almost but not quite motivated to list. Their number one reason is the fear that the fact they are for sale will drift back to customers, staff or suppliers. I have been told that if I approach them with a serious buyer qualified as to time, talent, and treasure, they will open discussions.

 Are you ‘Almost For Sale’?

 Call or email me to discuss how we can add your business to the above list without signing a full fledged listing agreement. Since mid-09,  I have had many more inquiries from buyers than sellers. They still want to buy on the numbers, but they are qualified and ready buyers.

Look for Other Businesses for Sale 

We are in a market with a shortage of product but you might want to try the Calgary Kijiji site. Kijiji has some nice owner operated businesses. If you don’t think you want to negotiate on your own, look over this buyer brokerage agreement then give me a call to see if I can help.

Finally, if you do see something that makes money but is not for you, let me know about it or tell the seller about my web site and that I have so many buyers right now that I’m not looking for sellers to sign exclusive listings.

Either I have the buyer or I don’t. There’s no need to tie him up.

Buyer’s Agency is a technical term that means a buyer engages me to canvas a certain industry or even a specific company telling them that I am acting for a particular ‘qualified but secret’ client with a specific interest.

Owners with no prior interest in selling are often willing to entertain offers appearing ‘out of the blue’.

Here is a list of ‘buyer interests’ expressed to me by various people wanting to buy a business. Contact me to put your interest on this list.

I have been approached by several active buying groups.

One group is looking for cash flow from mid-market companies exhibiting: Minimum of ½ MM EBITDA and max of $5MM EBITDA. Minimum 3 years in business with stable and growing cash flow. Loyal employee base with a key manager that is willing to stay on with the corporation.

I have a buyer for sign shop with a good customer base. Buyer can pay up to $300,000 based on the cash flow.

There is an oil field services conglomerate looking to expand. They will want vendor financing as a proof of the seller’s belief in the business. 

Or, if you are not in a hurry, I might find others buyers who pay cash. Call me.

Other active buyers have asked me to keep an eye out for other Calgary businesses for sale:

  • We are looking for firms marketing OFFLINE for LOCAL BUSINESSES (dentists, accountants, lawyers, restaurants, electricians, plumbers, etc.).
