Transactions handled by Decain are held confidentially by all parties. We require that a prospective buyer review and sign a non-disclosure statement outlining his responsibility in having access to a seller’s confidential information. This occurs before any detailed information concerning a specific opportunity is released.
Decain is committed to protecting the confidentiality of the business sale. We understand that the public knowledge of a potential sale can affect the attitudes and actions of customers, employees, competitors, lenders, suppliers, or investors and thus the value of the company.
We also want to safeguard the employment status of a potential buyer while he or she considers a very important change for their future.
Selling a business is time-consuming for an owner, and with us as your broker, you as the owner can maintain a focus on running the business while we are working to qualify potential buyers and work towards closing a satisfactory deal.
Reaching potential buyers
We seek out potential buyers as an ongoing part of our business. We currently have qualified buyers looking for businesses.
As your broker, we can help present your company in the best light to maximize the sale price. We have a understanding of the key values that buyers are looking for and can assist in identifying changes that can lead to a better selling price. We advertise on the major funeral industry media sources, such as Nomis Publications, as well as “BizBuySell”, “BizQuest”, “MergerNetwork” and more.
Valuing your Business
Assistance with Financing
We have direct contact with many lenders and can assist in connecting you with the best options. SBA (Small Business Administration) guaranteed loans are very popular and are available through most lenders. Some sellers will assist with financing and we will help to navigate those terms.
Closing a Deal
Since our sole function is to sell your business, there’s a much better chance that a deal will be closed in less time. The faster the sale, the lower the risk of employee problems, customer defection and predatory competition.
Why are we different
I have purchased, operated and sold funeral related businesses since 2001. I understand the business and have owned a trade service, monument company, cremation business and multiple funeral homes.
Not all businesses are immediately ready for sale in order to receive maximum benefit to seller. We work with these business owners to better prepare their business for a quick and satisfactory sale.
