What are some of the benefits of buying an existing business?
A proven concept – Buying an established business is less risky. As a buyer you already know the process or concept works because the business has a history and revenue. Sure, business plans and income projections look great on paper, with an existing business, you already know the actual performance of the business. You can look at the tax returns, profit and loss statements, etc.
The company’s brand – The ongoing benefits of any marketing or networking the prior owner has done will transfer to you. Existing relationships – with the purchase of an existing business, you will buy an existing customer base and vendor base.
An immediate focus – When you buy an existing farm supply business, you can start working immediately and focus on improving and growing the business without delay.
Trained employees in place – One of the most valuable and important assets of an existing company is the people. With the right team in place, just about anything is possible and you will have an easier time implementing growth strategies.
Cash flow – Typically, a sale is structured so you can cover the debt service, take a reasonable salary and have some left over to take this farm supply business to the next level. Start-ups could take a year or more to achieve a positive cash flow.
Existing licenses and permits – Licenses can be difficult to obtain, and it may be difficult to learn all the types of licenses and permits you need. Existing businesses have learned and acquired what is required. It turns into a matter of transferring those into your name.
Training by the seller – Often the seller will help you in the learning process. You benefit from their trial and error. An owner can show you the ropes of the business, introduce you to everybody and make sure it’s a smooth transition.
