New Horizon Business Brokers is quickly becoming one of the leading business brokerage firms serving clients throughout Arizona. We actively represent and match business owners wishing to sell their business with potential buyers.

If you are looking to Buy, Fund, Grow or Sell a Business, look no further...

At New Horizon Business Brokers we bring Proven Strategies, Professional Resources, and an easy to understand step-by-step process to help you win.

What makes us different?

We feel Business Brokerage is more than just listing a business for sale and putting it on the market for sale.

It is more about - first - taking the time to help Owners strategically package their business to achieve the best possible outcome for years of hard work.

At New Horizon Business Brokers, we understand there are Eight Drivers of Upside Leverage that will Maximize the Valuation and Marketability of your Business as well as provide the Buyer a better business to take over and transition into after close of escrow.

We also understand, most Business Owners do not take the time to Strategically Plan their exit, and as a result leave a small fortune on the closing table - or worst - never sell at all. (BizBuySell annual statistics prove this out)

How we help is by addressing a few simple things, and systematize a few processes that can set your business apart in the market and more attractive to qualified buyers. The end result, as the Seller, you are in a better position to sell for more and exit on your terms, and as the Buyer - you take over a business that was set up for a seamless transition, therefore allowing the new ownership to focus on operating and growing the business.

Most Common Client Considerations

For a Seller - it is about maximizing the business valuation and cashing out trapped equity for years of hard work, as well as keeping the transaction completely confidential from the initial marketing phase, during due diligence, and through the close of escrow.

For a Buyer - it is more about finding the best business that supports a favorable personal and financial lifestyle, protecting their wealth, and getting the best- value - return on investment (ROI) as well as the best return on your effort.(ROE) - while minimizing risk.

Needless to say, Buying or Selling a business will be one of the most important financial and lifestyle decisions you will ever make. Let us help you get it right.

Our Primary Goal is to become Your Trusted Advisor, and to help you succeed in reaching your personal and financial goals.

Written by By Darren Grady,

Welcome and thank you for reviewing our BizBuySell profile, and I would like to share a short overview of my business background, work experience and core beliefs to help you better understand how we can help you in successfully Selling or Buying a business.

First and foremost, I believe it is important to point out, being a Business Broker is not just theory for me. I have personally owned, operated and successfully sold three businesses over the past 35 years, and in the past decade I have assisted in the successful sale of over 100 businesses here in Arizona, and worked with many more entrepreneurs in an array of industry sectors.

Why is this important... because I have been in the trenches and understand the challenges associated with starting, building, managing, and successfully selling a business. In addition, as an active Arizona Business Broker, I've had a unique opportunity to see behind the curtain of many different types of businesses. As a result, what I've discovered - for a small business there are five common areas that will determine a Buyer's interest, their willingness to make an offer, the offer price, financial terms of sale, and the seller's involvement after the sale.

Over the years, I have owned a retail operation that specialized in ceiling fans, lighting and home accessory items. This was founded In the early days of the Phoenix expansion when home builders were putting up 30,000 to 40,000 new homes every year and before Home Depot and Loews enter the market-place. Needless to say - they were good times. As we grew, the retail operation opened doors and gave birth to a regional distribution company that sold to and serviced commercial apartment contractors, condo projects and large home builders with private labeled products imported directly from overseas manufacturers.

As Home Depot entered the market, both business were sold to a strategic buyer in late 1992

The next venture was manufacturing company that produced home furnishings, specializing in home entertainment and home theater furnishings as the TV market was shifting to Big Screens. Over 17 years, this business grew to employ over 200 people, developed a nationwide sales channel of professional manufactures reps that serviced over 1,500 Nationally Branded Retailers throughout the United States, Canada, and to a lesser extent Mexico. The business developed many long term relationships and trusted partnerships with valued customers

Due to the changing tide from domestic to imported goods coming in from China and other countries, the decision to sell was made in late 2004 and the business went on the market. In mid 2005 a letter of intent was accepted and the business was successfully sold to a group of private equity investors in early 2006. As a point of reference, at that time the business generated top line annual revenue of approx $ 20 million.

This first hand experience in working with well funded and experienced investors has proven invaluable. Specifically, as it relates to the business brokerage world for a few reasons. First and foremost this group was extremely thorough in their investigation of all aspects of the business, from recurring revenue, cost of labor, duties of employees, manufacturing systems and processes, net adjusted operating cash flow, profitability compared to industry standards, and the list goes on and on.

Living through the systematic dissection of the marketing, sales, operational, and financial aspects of the business provides great insight for assisting clients better prepare their businesses for sale or assist buyers through the inspection and due diligence process.

In closing, my goal, and the goal of New Horizon Business Brokers is to become your trusted Advisor. We will share our collective knowledge and experience to help you achieve your personal and financial goals.

Thank you,


Darren Grady
