- Hello, Peter Goodman here. I'm President at Goodman and Company Business Brokers. I've been a business broker for many years and I hold the designation of Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) through the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA), which is the largest and most well-respected business brokerage organization in the United States. I help owners of many types of small businesses sell their companies by working with them to analyze, value and then market their business to the business buying public as well as to my own database of thousands of confirmed local business buyers.
Business sales are always highly confidential. This is why hiring a business broker is so important. Only a business broker has the experience and skills to create a market for something that is top secret!
I work with all types of businesses, such as retail, service, distribution and manufacturing companies located in Eastern and Central Massachusetts. To begin the sales process I produce a Brokers Opinion of Value, which shows the true profitability of the company. (Business brokers call this 'discretionary earnings'.) The net income line on a company's tax return is for tax purposes only and does not reflect the actual owner benefit of a business.
There are many steps in the business sale process, which begins with meeting the owner of the business. Because deciding the direction of a business sale can be so difficult, it is important that the owner feels comfortable with me and the services that I provide. We need to work together closely to achieve a successful result.
My mission is to work with the business owner as a friend and confidant as we navigate through the business sale process, from listing to closing; to work with the seller's attorney and accountant and help negotiate the best possible terms and price.
Sales of all sizes of retail, service, distribution and manufacturing businesses.
