EBB Offers Buyers/Sellers 1 Stop Shopping The sale of a business is complicated, which is why we offer in-house services associated with buying/selling a business. This simplifies the process by eliminating the need for you to work with multiple outside service providers to facilitate the transaction. EBB’s services are available to any buyer or seller. This includes individuals who are interested in a business listed with us, as well as parties who are purchasing elsewhere and are looking for consulting services. The services we offer include: -Financing Financing Through EBB Has Its Advantages If you are purchasing an EBB listed business, consider financing it through one of our mortgage affiliates instead of working with a third party. A Knowledgeable Team Each transaction carries with it a unique set of circumstances that should be reflected in the financing. The importance in understanding the particulars of the sale (the individuals, their situations and goals, the deal terms, etc), gives us – your team - a unique advantage over other finance providers. Competitive Rates and the Right Terms When you work with an EBB business broker and their mortgage specialist affiliates, you get financing at a competitive rate AND terms that are right for your situation. -Consulting Asking the Experts for Advice Executive Business Brokers (EBB) offers consulting services for any aspect of buying/selling a business. We work with buyers and sellers to: Determine the Value of a Business EBB offers business valuations as a consulting service to sellers interested in listing their business FSBO (For Sale By Owner) or to sellers who simply want to know the value of their business. Comment on the Structure of the Deal EBB is often asked – as an impartial and objective third party - to comment on the structure of a deal for a business not offered through EBB. We can provide objective advice and guidance in order to help you achieve the best results. Prepare a Business for Sale Not all sellers are ready for sale and need help to develop an exit strategy. EBB can evaluate your business operation and identify what you need to do to prepare for a sale. -Consulting Asking the Experts for Advice Executive Business Brokers (EBB) offers consulting services for any aspect of buying/selling a business.

Instead of coming into our office to sign the standard agreements once qualified, you gain online access to EBB’s full services and listings to help you find the right business faster. Matchmaker When you register, you are asked to identify key factors, such as location, business type, price, and down payment. Our proprietary software generates a list of businesses that matches your criteria. Access Detailed Information Online Once you have signed a confidentiality agreement, you will have 24/7 access to business profiles, which includes the business’ name, its address, photographs and financial information Receive Information First Instead of checking with us, you will automatically receive monthly reports and new business listings, changes and updates as they occur via E-mail. Your Registration Fee is Refundable Registration fees for the Preferred Buyer Program are refundable when you buy a business through EBB. - Mergers and Acquisitions Growth Through Merger or Acquisition In most cases it is more profitable for a business to grow by acquisition. It is also faster, more economical, less risky and easier to finance. If you are considering a merger/acquisition, our advice is for you to base your purchase on strategic value, not price. Each year, EBB assists buyers and sellers with acquiring or selling businesses for strategic reasons. In some instances, we have been able to match buyers with businesses not originally up for sale. Specifically, we can help you find a business and locate a buyer, then negotiate and close the deal. More importantly, we can help you understand the more complex issues around acquiring or merging a business into your company, such as: - How to Structure the Deal - Determining Market Value - Conducting Due Diligence on a Business How EBB Determines a Business' Worth Valuing a business is not an exact science. There is no right way to determine price, as there are many methods of doing so. Many factors play into value – the economy, management, location, cash flow, lease, etc. EBB uses a multiple of the seller’s discretionary cash (SDC) to determine a business’ worth in the marketplace. Because each business has a different model and set of circumstances, we believe the SDC model rewards business with higher profits. While multiples vary from industry to industry, they generally fall into the 1X – 4X the Sellers Discretionary Cash (SDC) plus the depreciated value of the fixtures and equipment and the wholesale value of the saleable inventory.
