Should I Sell my Electrical Contracting Business?

sell my electrical contracting businessIf you are like most of our clients, you have worked for many years to build up a profitable electrical contracting company, and now you are considering how to sell it.  Electrical Contracting businesses vary quite a bit. Some are focused on commercial customers, and some on residential customers. There are union shops and non-union shops.  Some focus primarily on new construction, and some focus more on remodeling and repair work. Your company may do underground wiring or wiring within a building. Whatever type of electrical contractor business you own, when it comes time to sell, you want to maximize the sale price, keep the sale confidential, and find the right buyer to take over.

Who are the buyers of Electrical Contractors?

The electrical contracting industry is a $160 Billion industry. There are 70,000 electrical contracting firms just within the US. Some of your potential buyers will come from within the electrical contracting industry.

However, many other types of firms within the construction industry are interested in acquiring electrical contractors. These firms may already be doing some electrical contracting but want to expand their electrical contracting business. Some potential buyers may not be currently doing electrical contracting and want to get into this aspect of the business. They may subcontract electrical work, which is an excellent opportunity for them to bring that work in-house. Electrical Engineering Firms often want to acquire electrical contractors.  Companies within the construction industry can cross-sell their customer base with your customer base bringing out synergies and providing more expertise to the combined customer base of the two firms.

Also, the right buyer might be a private equity group that purchases companies within the construction industry. The idea is to get as many qualified buyers as possible to maximize the selling price of your electrical business.
