we sell businesses


Welcome This winter, LINK Bay of Plenty & Waikato celebrates 10 years of selling businesses in the ever-growing and booming “golden triangle”. From our humble beginnings in 2009 of a small office with two brokers, we now operate from two established offices in Tauranga and Hamilton, employing over 20 specialised business brokers (with a combined experience of over 150 years) and five full time staff. We are now the largest specialised business brokerage company outside of Auckland”. We have facilitated well over 1,000 business sales in the Bay of Plenty and Waikato, and are consistently recognised and awarded as one of the country’s top performing business brokerages. Our mission statement is simple. Facilitate the sale of businesses ethically, confidentially and with utmost integrity. Our exceptional success rate attests to the quality of our brokers and our focus on successful outcomes for all parties. Establishing awareness of broking as a professional and specialist service The working culture within the company is one that we are very proud of; it would not be out of place to see our team cycling the Karangahake Gorge or attending a Friday evening boot camp session. Health and wellbeing play an important part in keeping everybody motivated and able to perform their roles to the best of their ability, and

ultimately providing the highest standard of service to both business buyers and sellers throughout the North Island. At LINK, our team is made up of a very carefully selected number of business brokers, all of whom have extensive business experience and have been chosen to manage a wide range of industry sectors. We professionally manage the sale of the small “one man (or woman) band” businesses right through to our corporate team who look after businesses between $1M - $10M and larger. Our mix of brokers is diverse. We enjoy a varied range of skill sets and expertise. We have the young and not so young, men and woman, those from NZ, UK, South Africa, and those with different cultural backgrounds. We are confident that we have the right business broker to match your needs. The entire team at LINK is committed to providing you with the absolute highest level of service through your exciting journey of buying or selling a business.

Six Reasons Why LINK is Ahead of the Competition 1. The most innovative company in our sector

3. The support of the New Zealand Government

LINK won the REINZ inaugural innovation award for the valuation tool that has been created to conduct business appraisals. This piece of IP is ever-evolving based on current sales data, and has an algorithm that looks across a business and determines an indicative value.

In April this year, LINK was accepted as a NZTE Focus 700 customer.

This tool is available to all LINK brokers, and is uncannily correct, often within 5% of the actual sale value of a business listed. In addition, we were awarded the Callaghan Innovation Growth Grant, a $15M contract over three years to undertake research and development and increase our already advanced IP.

2. The largest business brokerage in the world With 500 brokers worldwide, a vendor has an extensive sales team to transact the sale of their business. In NZ alone, we are over double the size of our closest competitor which gives us specific advantages in how we can market and sell businesses. Because of this scale, we have regular international conferences with our most recent one held in Bangkok, Thailand in April this year. At these conferences, we conduct a number of training programmes, have excellent guest speakers, create sessions to learn how the best brokers work, and have an enormous amount of fun.

4

Being a Focus 700 customer puts LINK in an exclusive group of the 700 largest export companies in New Zealand. For this privilege, we get priority access to NZTE’s services, including market research, sales execution, operational excellence, investment management, design thinking, in-market immersion and the international growth fund. Our executive and board plan to take full advantage of these services to fuel our international growth.

4. Strong staff and broker ownership In August 2018, LINK raised capital for specific acquisitions and growth initiatives which have proven very successful. Over 70% of the capital raise was filled by LINK brokers and staff.

5. Office and support model Unlike a number of other business brokerages where only centralised support is offered, our business model is based upon offices with direct support staff on the ground to make our brokers lives as easy as possible. This enables our brokers to transact more businesses faster without compromising quality. Each office has a Sales Manager who runs the office, conducts sales meetings, motivates brokers, reviews agreements, assists with moving businesses through Due Diligence, and generally support brokers to do a better


job. Within each office are office managers and a support team that undertake a number of tasks for the brokers, including writing & proofing information memorandums, advertising and marketing of a listing, deal management, and conversing with lawyers. In addition, we have invested heavily in our very own broker training academy which provides an “a to z” how-to guide for business broking. All new brokers go through this academy on induction, and have full access to it at any time.

Every member of our executive team and board are shareholders in the company, whether it be existing shareholders, or shareholders who are investing as part of our current capital raise. Having “skin in the game” means we are razor sharp on what we need to do, and how we are going to get it done. By Suneil Connor, LINK CFO

This model undoubtedly costs more, however, we believe this model is a key part of our success in recruiting the best brokers in the market year in, year out.

6. Focused executive team and board The executive team and board of the parent company are extremely focused on moving the needle of LINK. The communication structure between our teams is excellent, we are thorough in our planning, have a clear strategy, are decisive, and are not laboured by the corporate bureaucracy that holds many organisations back.

Why a Business Broker is Best for Selling Your Business When it’s time to sell your business, your primary focus needs to remain on running your business. If the business starts to lose profits as you concentrate on the sale, it could decrease the overall value. This is one reason why using a business broker is such a great idea. Besides freeing up your time to keep growing your business and maximise the final sale price, a broker has the expertise to find the right buyer and get the best price, which is the best outcome for you.

Specialised Knowledge Selling a business is often a complicated process, involving preparing marketing materials, screening buyers and giving out varying levels of information to interested parties. Business brokers help buy and sell businesses every day. They understand the process and have procedures in place that make sure every detail is looked after. They also have specialised knowledge that will help you in your business sale journey. They keep an eye on the markets and can advise you on the right time to sell. Often you can find brokers who are specialists in your industry and can give you further information on how the markets are impacting your business. Business brokers prepare a Broker’s Opinion of Value and can help you come up with a realistic asking price. If you don’t like that asking price, they can advise you on the steps you can take to make your business more attractive. In addition, business brokers know what you must do to prepare for the sale, including getting paperwork ready and developing procedures for the future handover; they will make sure that you’re ready.

Maintain Confidentiality Many business owners don’t realise how important confidentiality is in the sale process. If news of your upcoming sale becomes general knowledge, you risk losing clients, suppliers and employees who are unsure

Many business owners don’t realise how important confidentiality is in the sale process. If news of your upcoming sale becomes general knowledge, you risk losing clients, suppliers and employees who are unsure about future owners.

about future owners. This can have a huge impact on the eventual offer price you receive for your business. A business broker removes you from the process of meeting potential buyers, which is an excellent first step in maintaining confidentiality. The process of screening buyers allows them to only share information with buyers who are serious, and they make sure confidentiality agreements are signed before releasing the information. This protects your business, whether the sale goes ahead or not. Brokers also understand when to release information, giving potential buyers a wideangle view to start with, before going into specifics as the sale negotiations progress.

The Marketing Expert Most small business owners have to learn about marketing to make their business a success, but they are able to tell people what they’re selling. Business brokers are experts in making your business look like a great prospect while keeping all the details confidential. Brokers also use marketing materials not used to sell other products, such as the sales memorandum. Having an expert create this for you will save you time and increase the potential offer price.

Potential buyers approach them, and many have a roster of people looking to buy, who they can approach when your business goes on the market.

Securing the Sale Finally, your business broker will help you negotiate the sale. It’s likely you’ve built your business from the ground up and put a lot of time, money and energy into making it a success. This means you’re probably not objective about it. Your business broker can bring objectivity to the table, which can help the negotiation process go smoothly. They also understand the types of clauses that can be added to sweeten the deal for you and your buyer. As they work on commission, you can be assured that they’re invested in getting you the best price. It’s taken a long time to build your business, you want to make sure the sale is a success. Expert assistance can help you continue growing your business while it’s on the market and ensure that you get the price your business deserves.

Best of all, people wanting to buy a business know that brokers have businesses available.

How we found the perfect match COMPANY Che Hair & Day Spa TIME TO SELL 5 Months SOLD within 2% of valua on

“Thank you so much Lisa! You have been a fantastic broker! This has been an outstanding experience. Looking forward to the future!”

Customer This business was started 17 years ago, hairdressing and beauty therapy combined under one roof, in a rac ve and spacious premises. There were 4 full- me staff members (including the owner) and 2 part- mers.

Background The owner had owned hair salons for around 30 years and was very ready to step back without the responsibility of owning her own business.

Result: There was not a lot of ac vity for the first 6 weeks, and then we had 3 interested par es all at once. The one that purchased was fast ac ng, excellent to deal with and offered $2,000 above full asking price to secure the contract.

Lisa Lloyd M. +64 27 685 4556 0800 225 999 lisa.lloyd@linkbusiness.co.nz Lisa has chosen a career in Business Brokering to help see others fulfill their dreams of business ownership, and the rewards that come with that. The decision to specialise in the Beauty and Health sector was a natural progression after 28 28 years in the beauty therapy industry.

Childcare Business Sales Market Update Demand for centres remains high in the main population areas. Outside of these areas, there is less demand but usually that just means a longer selling period. Obviously earnings are a key indicator on price but non-profitable centres can also sell for good prices. Centres with low or negative profitability are, however, more difficult to appraise in terms of a market value range. I have seen instances of sellers being advised by their accountants that their centre is worth very little due to low profitability when that is simply not the case. Get an appraisal from someone who has experience in selling childcare centres as you may be surprised.

When is the Right Time to Sell? This is probably one of the most frequently asked questions by New Zealand business owners.

So how do you go about preparing your business for sale? There are some essential considerations.

The answer, unfortunately, is not straight forward. Many business owners believe that the best time to sell is when the financial position of the business is at its healthiest. This is most definitely a considering factor, there’s no substitute for quality businesses with attractive figures.

Presentation Make sure your business premises and plant equipment are all tidy and in excellent condition.

However, there are a number of other considering factors to take into account, which can significantly affect the value of your business. One of these is “market timing”. This current financial year has been one of my busiest years ever, which indicates that there is strong buyer demand for businesses, especially in the Bay of Plenty. In the coming years, we are predicting that there may be an above normal number of businesses for sale, with a number of “baby boomers” wanting to retire and sell their businesses. Most business owners are reluctant to sell in a buoyant market, mainly due to the fact that they are making good profits and that is understandable. What an owner has to consider is that when the market starts to dip, as it inevitably will, purchaser confidence dips as well. When there are fewer purchasers in the market and an abundance of businesses for sale obviously sale prices soften.

Staff Securing key staff members and ensuring that there are systems and procedures in place, enabling the business to operate with minimal involvement from the owner. Contracts Ensuring that all client and supplier contracts are up to date and ready for a new owner to take over. Accurate property lease documents, clearly noting which party (tenant or landlord) owns the tenant fixtures and fittings. Accounts These need to be accurate, show maximum profitability and be able to stand up to scrutiny. Any potential purchaser, as part of their Due Diligence process, will want to investigate the business’s financial statements for the last 3-5 years. Timing Market timing can significantly affect the value of your business, and that could be as simple as beating the rush of “baby boomers” coming to the market.

(+64) 21 932 633 mike.fraser@linkbusiness.co.nz Mike brings 25 years of experience and will take care of your business sale or purchase with complete confidentiality; which means you will have a smooth experience and a satisfying result.

Hospitality Conversions The Value in Buying an Existing Business By Theresa Eagle & Alanah Eagle There is real value in buying an existing hospitality business that may not be performing, for you to convert into your dream business.

Have an Idea • What is the product or service? • Write a Business Plan. • Have a clear idea of your branding. • Who is your target market? Are they being serviced successfully in the area? • Will it work in the existing business location and space? • Will you need to apply for further consents or licences? It may be currently run as an unlicensed café and you would like to convert it to a restaurant. • What would the Council require you to do?

Make a Plan • Have a detailed start-up budget, ask different professionals in the hospitality industry to help guide you – always shop around and remember, commercial equipment can last over 10 years versus domestic equipment. • Buying an existing hospitality business, can reduce timelines, Council consent processes and expensive set-up costs such as grease traps, extraction hoods, and the number of toilets required. • Look at the reasons why the existing business is not performing. Is it the offering, cash flow problems, bad management, is it dated, or is it the location? • Write a cash flow with at least three different scenarios on turnover; fantastic/good/bad • Look at both successful and unsuccessful businesses with similar concepts, why do they work or not work. • Know your industry KPI’S (Key Performance

32

Indicators). This is where it is beneficial to be a member of Hospitality Associations and talk to your local specialist business broker, they will have an understanding of current guidelines. • Have a good amount of working capital – don’t expect to make profit for the first couple of months. • Use a specialist accountant or mentor to keep you on track for the first year or two; do this by having monthly or bi-monthly meetings about the business. Remember the plan!

Reality – Open • Open when you are ready. Soft openings (no marketing) are a great way to iron out kinks before you get too busy! • Weekly tracking of your KPI’s. Don’t wait for the accountant to tell you how much money you have made, or worse, lost. • Set up a GST account – it’s not your money to spend. • Refer back to your cash flow and business plan regularly. • Keep in touch with your business broker for regular appraisals of your business and knowledge of what is happening in the market. This will help you keep your business sale ready for the best results.

The hardest thing about business is turning the idea into a reality that makes money!

How we found the perfect match COMPANY Huka Honey Hive TIME TO SELL 3 Months SHARED DEAL listing agent Mike Fraser

“Thank you so much Alanah for everything, we are very much looking forward to enjoying a glass of lovely chilled champagne - once we’ve come down from the ‘buzz’ of our first day as owners of the Huka Honey Hive!”

40

Buyer The purchaser and I were ini ally in discussion around a car racing business 20+ months prior to them purchasing Huka Honey Hive. They were reloca ng to Taupo from overseas and were happy to take their me to find the right business for their lifestyle, requirements and principles.

Background Huka Honey Hive is a fabulous business, well established in the local community, while also being a must to visit for tourists to Taupo. It’s con nued growth and profitability within a strong tourism industry was very appealing to buyers, resul ng in a mul offer situa on not long a er coming to the market.
