Cetane Associates, LLC Specializes in:
Selling Your Business
One of the most important decisions an owner will make is the decision to sell their business. The sale of a business is often complicated by variables such as timing, tax implications, partnerships and market conditions to name a few. What we bring to the table is the ability to help guide you to a decision you feel good about in the long term. We have built a network of qualified buyers and we know how to keep the transaction confidential.
You probably have the plan in your head. It’s your company and you believe you know what has to be done to improve certain aspects of your business. You have read about successes other companies have had and you have seen where you want to improve, but you just have not gotten around to implementing the programs you want and need. If this sounds like you, we can help, guaranteed.
Cash Flow Modeling and Management
Cash is the life blood of a business and a healthy cash flow will help businesses grow and prosper. At Cetane Associates we help you measure your needs so you can manage your cash flow. We also provide assistance with proven techniques designed to improve cash flow. Regardless if you are recapitalizing your business or just looking to better your current position, we can help.
Buying a Business
The purchase of a business is an exciting time for an owner and their company. Growth is good! But remember, buyer beware. Exploring the purchase of a business has many facets. How do I find the right business? How do I value the business? How much cash will be needed to complete the purchase? As an expert in buying businesses, we can help you navigate the process, get the funding and close the deal.
Business Valuations and Appraisals
Business valuations are required in many instances such as estate planning, acquisition funding, bankruptcies, litigation and divorce, to name a few. Our detailed valuations examine the entire business and have been used by many owners as budgeting and process improvement tools. Our “Valuation Plus” program will also supply benchmark data to compare your results to other businesses in your industry.
