We’ve been in business for over 28 years. Since 1996, we’ve sold more than 850 businesses. Over 70% of Viking’s employees have owned their own business. And, on average, businesses that Viking represents sell for 96%+ of their asking price. With numbers like these, it’s easy to see why Viking has so many repeat customers.
Selling Industry Average Rate
Our success rate in selling businesses is 3x the industry average.
Closed Deals Still in Business
Out of Viking’s 800+ business transactions, the vast majority are still in business today despite the economic downturn.
Of Listed Businesses Sell for Asking Price
On average, businesses we list sell for almost full price of the published asking rate.
Years of Continued Growth
Viking has continued to grow since 1996, becoming the largest group of its kind in the Southeast.
Viking takes your confidentiality seriously and has processes in place to ensure your business’s private information and financials are only shared with vetted, serious buyers who meet your approval. We make certain that anyone who gets to see your business’s inner workings and financials is a serious candidate.
We stay with our sellers through every step of the process, providing regular updates on what’s happening and remaining available to answer any questions or address any concerns that arise during the process – even after an offer is accepted, right through due diligence, closing, and especially post closing. Staying involved not only keeps you informed, but it also leads to on-time closings and successful transitions.
At Viking, we close 85% of businesses we list. In an industry where a mere 25% of businesses marketed ever sell, our closing rate is more than 3 times that amount.
What if you could find a way to get your business opportunity in front of thousands of qualified buyers while keeping the potential sale confidential? Viking makes that happen. We have immediate access to thousands of qualified buyers who are searching for just the right business opportunity.
Viking charges what we call a “success” rate, meaning we get paid when we successfully complete your business sale. We do not have upfront fees or ongoing fees; we get paid when you get paid. Over the years, we’ve found this performance-based compensation works best for our sellers and for ourselves.
What Our Clients Say.
After having been on the market for only 3 days, we received an offer. We are very excited about the buyer, and feel like Viking did a great job at finding a good fit for our business.
