Selling Your Tool & Die Company Confidentiality

Not everyone thinks about selling a business confidentially, but it is an important part of the business sale process. If investors or employees find out that your business will be sold, you don't want to have some of them get skittish before the deal is completed. Synergy Business Brokers provides a confidential consultation, confidential marketing, and nondisclosure agreements to make sure your tool and die business sells confidentially.

We offer a confidential consultation where we will learn more about your business. We'll ask questions such as:

  • What types of products do you manufacture?
  • Who do you sell them to?
  • What is your role in the company, and what are the skills and experience of your employees?
  • Next, we'll review your financial information.

Once we have this information, we can provide you with a potential selling price. If you are agreeable to this, we can proceed with a marketing plan. We sell companies with an annual net income of $250,000 to $7 Million, so hopefully, your company falls within our range.

Niche Tool & Die Manufacturing Companies are Thriving

The press has talked about manufacturing dying in this country, but we have not found this to be true for specialized manufacturing companies such as tool and die businesses and machine shops. In fact, some of our largest deals have been with manufacturing companies. We find that there is a lot of interest in acquiring them. The potential buyers range from other manufacturing companies to wealthy family investment firms, successful entrepreneurs, and companies outside the manufacturing industry, such as distributors and companies that can benefit from the synergies of acquiring a particular company.

Our job is not so much finding potential buyers as it is finding the right prospective buyers.  We have a qualification process so that we can get information on potential buyers, including their financial qualifications and background, before providing them with information about your firm. We'll also have them sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement to keep the sale of your business confidential.

Confidential Marketing Plan

The first step in our marketing plan is to write up an overview document that doesn't have your name or location but has general information about your business. We will advertise that on many different websites. We use artificial intelligence, social media, and email marketing to generate as many qualified potential buyers as possible.

Once we have a qualified buyer who is interested and has signed an NDA, we'll provide them with more information and answer any questions. If they are interested in moving forward, typically, we will set up a buyer/seller meeting. We'll make the introduction, and each party can ask questions to see if it is a good fit for both parties.  After questions are answered, the next step would be for a letter of intent, which outlines the terms and conditions of an offer. We can get multiple offers on most of our manufacturing assignments. This provides an environment where we can get you the best price and terms for your manufacturing business. We also have relationships with banks that are interested in lending for manufacturing deals. This allows you to get all or most of the money paid at the closing.
