Online Business-Selling Platform – How it Works
ExitAdviser has simplified the overall process of selling a business (by owner) down to a 4 stage undertaking:
#1: Check the Status
#2: Prepare for Sale
Here's where the key online business-selling tools play an important role.
- ExitAdviser's Business Valuation Tool uses the tried-and-tested discounted cash flow (DCF) method to come up with an objective, earnings-based outcome, helping you to defend your asking price with prospective buyers.
- In parallel, the Sales Memorandum tool brings attention to the key information that serious buyers will want to know.
- Next, with the Go-to-Market tool, you will prepare your ad to hit the market.
#3 Go to Market
Secondly, with the Pitch-to-Brokers tool, your offer will be confidentially mailed to a number of potential intermediaries nearby.

At the closing stage, it's the detail that counts. It is advisable to use the services of an attorney.
