How We Work With Buyers
ManageVisors loves working with cash-ready investors and strategic buyers who see the huge opportunities in recurring revenue businesses. We typically work with 3 types of buyers.
1. Buyers For Our Listings: Investors and entrepreneurs seeking information on a listing should first review our online teaser document. If it may be a good fit, sign our NDA and fill out the Buyer Profile. We will then give you a call on the phone number you’ve provided. After a brief discussion, we will send you the complete Offering Memorandum.
2. Buyer Rep: We love working with buyers thirsty to grow through acquisition. Finding the right deal at the right price is the hard part. If we come across a potential seller willing to entertain an offer, we will work with you under a Buyer Representation agreement all the way to closing.
3. Brokers & M&A Professionals: ManageVisors is happy to cooperate with qualified business intermediaries on our listings but we do not co-broker deals with individuals who have little or no business transaction experience such as real estate agents, financial planners or principals seeking a co-op fee.
8 Reasons Contractor Businesses Are In Such Demand
Profitability: National profit margins on contractor businesses traditionally are stronger than other sectors like retail, wholesale or manufacturing. To illustrate, the Business Reference Guide, the “go-to” resource in business sales, lists several contractor industries in the highest profitability ranges.
Recurring Revenues: A business buyer’s aphrodisiac. Investors love companies with consistent, recurring income. Especially annual contract income. They seek out multiple streams of revenue not available in other industries.
Client Stickiness: Satisfied customers in contractor businesses often maintain tremendous loyalties and are reluctant to switch service companies once they’ve had a positive experience.
Scalability: Contractor businesses offer tremendous “strap-on” potential for entrepreneurs. The business model is great for enjoying economies of scale or expanding into other markets or states.
Barriers To Entry: Because contractor businesses require licenses in most states, it’s more difficult for outsiders to get a foothold in these industries. This higher barrier-to-entry creates opportunities for strategic investors already in the industry and looking to expand.
Mobility: Technology and business practices make it relatively easy for business owners to expand into other markets, even other states. Client relationships, vendor networks and employee contacts are now more remote than ever.
Value-Add Opportunities: Just as in real estate, some investors seek out struggling businesses. There is substantial opportunity in purchasing an underperforming company at a great price.
Market Knowledge: The online universe has made it so much easier to keep abreast of market conditions and the status of your competitors.
