3. SELL TO SAFEGUARD
You’ve worked hard to build your business. If you’re thinking about selling, you know that completing the sale of your enterprise under the right terms and with the right buyer are extremely important to ensuring that the legacy of your business remains intact. At Safeguard, we’ve developed a business acquisition model that focuses not only on those two key areas, but also on many more.
Valuable Deal Structure
Traditionally, in our industry, many transactions are completed with confusing, long-term payout or "earn-out" structures that shift significant risk onto the shoulders of the seller. In many cases, receiving the full value for your business can take years and can be determined significantly by the success, or lack thereof, of the buyer of your business. But at Safeguard, our preference is to provide full value for your business at the closing table, without the long-term earn-outs with which many in our industry have become accustomed.
Securing your Legacy
For most sellers, there is an important need to know what will happen to your business once it’s purchased by Safeguard. While other companies may be interested in integrating the business into significantly larger enterprises, Safeguard’s intent is to re-sell the business to an existing or new Safeguard owner. Thus, your business gets the full and complete attention of a vested owner-operator and someone who aims to treat your business with the same focus and care that you provide to your business today.
