Why You Should Hire Viking to Sell Your Business
There are many reasons why a business owner would choose Viking Mergers & Acquisitions to sell their business. Let’s take a look at just a few:
Experience: Our brokers have almost 9 decades—88 years—of experience buying and selling businesses. Since 1996, we’ve sold more than 500 businesses. Nearly 75% 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.
Commitment to confidentiality: Some brokers will send business stats (including financials) to just about anyone who asks for them. Viking takes your confidentiality seriously, and has processes in place to ensure your business’ private information and financials are only shared with vetted, serious buyers who meet your approval. We make certain that anyone who gets to pull back the curtain on your business’ inner workings and financials is a serious candidate, not just window shopping.
We stay involved: Unlike other firms, we stay with our sellers every step of the process, providing regular updates on what’s happening and being available to answer any questions or address any concerns that arise during the process – even after an offer is accepted, right through due diligence and closing. Staying involved not only keeps you informed, but it also leads to on-time closings.
Our closing rate is 4 times the industry average: At Viking, we close 75%-80% of businesses we market. In an industry where a mere 22% of businesses marketed ever sell, our closing rate is nearly 4 times that amount.
Our network of potential buyers is massive: What if you could find a way to get your business opportunity in front of thousands of qualified buyers immediately? Viking makes that happen. We have immediate access to 2,500+ qualified buyers who are searching for just the right business opportunity.
We get paid when you get paid: Viking charges what we call a “success” rate, meaning we get paid when we successfully complete your business sale. No sale=no fees. Over the years, we’ve found this performance-based compensation works best for our sellers and ourselves.
