We begin with a personal introductory meeting at a location of your choice in Los Angeles or Orange County – or online via video call. Tell us what your goals and priorities are. We will then suggest next steps and lay out a plan for how we can help you buy or sell a business.
2. Conduct an independent business valuation
Every successful business transaction is preceded by an independent business valuation. If you are selling a business, knowing what it is worth can prevent you from selling it at a discount – or overpricing it and having trouble selling it. If you are buying a business in the Los Angeles area, knowing its true value is essential to paying the right price.
3. Create a proper exit plan (when selling a business)
If you are selling a business, Nielsen Valuation Group will ensure that you do the proper exit planning to avoid costly missteps and pitfalls. For example, reviewing the company’s finances and improving its profitability can have a significant impact on the valuation. Such advice is rare, if not non-existent, when hiring an ordinary Los Angeles business broker.
4. Reach a deal with help from our transaction advisory
We want you to succeed in reaching an agreement with the buyer or seller. We understand that timely decisions and agreements are critical to successful deals. That is why we are by your side all the way to the signing of the agreement and, if you wish, throughout the implementation phase. This maximizes your chances of selling or buying your business at the right price and ensuring that the transaction becomes a reality.
Why we are a better choice than your standard Los Angeles & Orange County business brokers
When you want to buy or sell a business in the Los Angeles and Orange County area, your first thought is probably to contact a business broker. However, there are many reasons why choosing a transaction advisor like Nielsen Valuation Group is often a better choice.
Business broker vs. advisor when selling a business
Want to sell a business in Los Angeles or Orange County? Your regular business broker will probably charge an initial fee to get your business is listed.
Then, in most cases, nothing happens until a prospective buyer shows up. It may or may not happen. Some reports have shown that up to 80 percent of all business brokerage listings remain unsold.
If your business does sell, the business broker will charge a hefty commission, a percentage of the sale price. Unfortunately, these brokers rarely provide useful advice during the process, and you just have to wait.
When you use Nielsen Valuation Group to broker your business instead, the whole process is different. We never charge engagement fees or expensive sales commissions. Your only out-of-pocket expense is the fee for our advisory services. Therefore, you can be assured that you will always receive unbiased and truly honest advice that will help you successfully buy or sell a business in the Los Angeles area.
Advisor vs. business broker when buying a company
If you want to sell a business in Los Angeles or Orange County, your typical business broker will be eager to get you to accept a deal at the highest possible price. In doing so, he or she will earn a substantial sales commission.
In our opinion, this incentive is wrong because it can lead you into a deal that is not favorable. And who can you turn to for advice? Business brokers cannot give unbiased advice because they benefit from the deal.
In contrast, when you use Nielsen Valuation Group as your transaction advisor to find a company to acquire and to close the deal, you can trust our advice. When you pay us, our only interest is to provide you with professional and unbiased advice, including an accurate business valuation. We will be by your side from start to finish, which gives you peace of mind.
