Maximizing Value For Your Tech Business

Tech businesses have historically had high demand, and the migration of talent from corporate jobs has created a large pool of experienced and talented tech talent looking for a business to own.

Due to the increase in demand for tech companies in Orange County, selling your tech company now will put you at a financial advantage. As a tech business broker, our team at Pacific Business is proficient and experienced in dealing with tech companies and market trends. We have a large pool of buyers, and we know how to calculate and maximize your business value. Our team evaluates the financial performance and market position of your tech business to determine the maximum value of your business.

The following are a few strategies we employ to maximize your business value:

Discretionary Earnings and EBITDA are the major drivers of business value. A consistent history of growth in revenue and earnings increases business value. Likewise, a company with relatively flat revenue and earnings will do well on the market because while it is not growing, it does demonstrate stability. Consistent revenue and earnings are also important to SBA and other lenders when considering financing for the acquisition of a business.
A diverse customer/client base for your products and services reduces risk for prospective buyer and ensures the business will not incur losses if a single (major) customer/client pulls out. Buyers prefer a company with no customers/clients that accounts for more than 10% to 20% of the products/service consumption. With that said, we have successfully sold businesses with high customer concentratoins by demonstrating their products and services are in a unique niche.
Another major factor of your business’ valuation is your management’s value. A high-value company typically has good infrastructure and a solid team. Transition from the seller to the new owner is always a concern and a solid team underneath the owner is an important factor in reducing this risk for the buyer. Your management team and staff has to show independence in that they have the skills and ability to drive the business forward even after you leave. This indicates that the company’s value is not entirely dependent on you as the owner.
After an offer has been accepted there will be a thorough due diligence review of the company’s financials and other records. You need to have accurate and detailed financial statements, tax returns, and other financial information ready for review. The buyer will thoroughly evaluate your tech business’s financial records and details. The accuracy and quality of your tech business financial records and information will significantly impact maximizing your company’s value.

When selling your business, you need to have next-level plans stipulated. Buyers are captured by the future opportunities for your tech business and how your business is positioned to take advantage of these opportunites. A realistic plan for the future illustrates your business’s potential for ongoing profitability and growth. Technology is all about elevating and adapting to higher levels and models. Our tech business broker team in Orange County will help your business set up a growth plan in no time.

At Pacific Business Sales, we emphasize the above key points to help maximize the value of your business. We have been in the business brokerage industry for over 20 years, and we have noted some of the most common mistakes business owners make when selling their business. Here are some mistakes that you should avoid:

  • Waiting too long to sell or failing to plan- Several factors contribute to how long a business sells. While there are external factors that are beyond the seller’s control, there are proven measures that speed up the process of selling your business. Therefore, you should plan to ensure smooth running when you finally get a serious buyer.
  • Broker choice- The technology business broker you choose is a determinant of how fast you will finish the transaction, who the buyer will be, and the maximum value you will get for your company. If you are in Orange County and looking to sell your tech business, we are the best technology business brokers you can get.
  • Overpricing or underpricing your business- Underpricing your company will cast doubt on potential buyers’ minds regarding your company’s growth potential, while overpricing will drive away potential buyers due to the outrageous price. Our dedicated technology business brokers team ensures you set the maximum yet reasonable price for your business.
  • Selling to the wrong buyer – While many potential buyers will show interest, only a selected few are financially capable of doing so. Arranging meetings with buyers whose abilities have been thoroughly cross-checked will save you valuable time.
