Whether you are selling your security alarm company or selling your security alarm accounts, there are a lot of variables to consider.
Selling your alarm company can be a complex undertaking, especially if you are a first time seller. You are the best and brightest in this industry, when you are ready to sell, you should expect your security company broker to be the best as well. Our firm’s sole purpose is to position and market your company so you sell your security company efficiently and for a substantial profit. All the while providing absolute confidentiality, to obtain the highest possible price for your security alarm business.
Like you, our brokers were previously founders and owners of large alarm companies before selling their businesses at a record high rate. We want to show you how to do the same! Legacy’s brokers know this industry inside and out. Our mission is to maximize your opportunities when you are ready to sell.
Most alarm company owners will only have the experience of selling their company once, yet they are bargaining with corporations that are highly skilled in acquisition negotiations. Lack of experienced representation will cost you money! Our brokers know how to negotiate on your behalf to get the highest possible rate for your security business. Oftentimes the “multiple” or selling price is not the high water mark. The terms and conditions of the deal can considerably enhance or diminish the value of your overall agreement.
You want someone that will do more than just refer you to potential buyers. We evaluate and prequalify all prospective buyers to help you find a perfect fit for the future operator of your endeavor.
We know the importance of confidentiality not just during the marketing and sale of your business, but afterwards as well. Unlike other brokers, Legacy will never advertise the completed sale of your company to generate future business for ourselves!
Legacy is unique because we have personally been in your position. Whether you are ready to sell now or wanting to plan your future exit strategy, we can help you capitalize on your greatest achievement.
The quick answer is YES. You have most likely noticed some downturn in your personal business which reflects our economic climate. However, as other types of businesses around you are closing their doors, you are still able to keep moving forward by making internal adjustments along the way. This has been a common story in the security business. Our industry has been largely protected from the devastation that so many others have incurred. This information has been gaining the attention of large investment groups who want to put their money in a safe harbor during this economic storm.
As more and more investment groups are bidding for alarm companies, this has actually increased your chances of getting a high rate at selling time. So, although no one can guarantee you’ll get the trophy price you’re hoping for, there has never been a better time to try!
There are other reasons why this is a good time to sell. Interest rates are at an all time low which means buyers are ceasing these opportunities before the rates go up. There are more potential buyers today than ever before which can only be good for you. Unlike the real estate market, the security industry is experiencing a seller’s market.
Another solid reason to sell now is the capital gains tax rate. A few years ago it was at a very high rate of 28%. Now, the money you earn from the sale of your alarm company will be taxed at a much lower rate of 15%. Given our political climate, this may change soon, which means the window of opportunity could be closing soon. It may be wise to take advantage of the selling conditions right now.
