Sellability Advisor Tool
The Sellability Advisor tool lets you evaluate how saleable your business is. You can rate the 7 most important aspects of your business such as its current status and future potential. After you’ve submitted these ratings, the tool will return you a Sellability Score, as well as suggestions on which key aspects of your business need to be improved and how.
Answer the questions below:
How Does it Work
The Sellability Advisor tool calculates the scores you gave to the seven key aspects of your business and then supplies you with a weighted average. Each score ranges from 1 to 10. The weights of the aspects (criteria) are as follows:
- Financial Strength = 8
- Growth Potential = 7
- Customer Portfolio = 4
- Recurring Revenues = 4
- Value Proposition = 5
- Customer Satisfaction = 4
- Owner Independency = 5
The Sellability Advisor tool gives you one final score, ranging from 1 to 10. It will factor in all the criteria and average weighted scores together for this summary score. The result will be a reflection of how "sellable" your business truly is.
Sellability will mostly be about time and pricing. Will you be able to sell your business quickly? Will you need to drop your asking price? If you can answer yes to the first question and no to the second question, then you are in good shape.
Along with the Sellability Score, the tool will automatically give you suggestions on all the key aspects which were rated with a score of less than 6.
