Entrepreneurs invest many years building successful businesses. Selling your business, or buying an existing one, is a life-changing event. It is the mission of Truforte to help goal-oriented individuals realize their dreams. Our professionals have successfully handled hundreds of business sales throughout the USA for buyers and sellers. This provides valuable experience that better qualifies Truforte to help with the purchase or sale of your business entity. Business brokers are intermediaries who facilitate the sale of privately held businesses by working with both buyers and sellers. Confidentiality is critical to the successful transfer of a business. If it becomes known that a business is for sale, several things start happening and none of them are beneficial for either the seller or buyer of the business. Professional intermediaries are keenly aware of this and are experts at maintaining confidentiality. Truforte's professionals have decades of experience, handling the sale of hundreds of businesses in a wide range of size and industries.

In 2014 the seller generated $147,000 of cash flow and in addition to that amount paid himself an $80,000 salary. An owner operator would have effectively made over $225,000 in 2014, but, we have left $80,000 in replacement salary for each year to reflect an owner who needs to hire a new technician. The Company maintains a significant number of maintenance contracts which ensure a steady stream of income and a customer base that each year is predictably sold additional products and services. The customer base is 50% commercial and 50% residential accounts. The Company is busy, performing well, and this year expects to generate revenues comparable to 2014.
