If you run a print shop and you’re looking to sell your business, consider selling to Allegra.
Our seasoned mergers and acquisitions managers are your go-to team if you’re looking to sell your business. Part of Allegra’s key to success is that we’re constantly looking for existing businesses for sale so new Franchise Members can purchase them and convert them into an Allegra-branded franchise.
As part of the Alliance Franchise Brands (AFB) family, we have a proven process in place to help independent printers sell their business. Since it’s such an important part of our business model to find existing businesses that will mitigate costs for Franchise Members coming into the Allegra system, part of our focus is creating ethical relationships built on mutual trust that empower success for both our brand and the independent seller.
We have helped more than 350 people sell their independent businesses. Entrepreneurs benefit because we bring only qualified buyers to the table, and our assistance is commission-free, which saves as much as 12% on broker’s fees.
Sell Your Business to Allegra in 7 Steps
Establish the value. With our free and confidential valuation service, you just need to gather some documents and click the link below. We’ll need the most recent three years’ worth of bank statements, tax returns, P&L statements, and related documents. Once you have those ready, just click on valuemyprintbusiness.com and complete the confidential form.
Set your price. The astute seller will seek second opinions from an accountant and an attorney. We are willing to consider special terms of a sale such as retaining valued employees. You will negotiate the terms of the purchase with the buyer.
Receive Letter of Intent. The buyer, an existing Franchise Member, will send you a Letter of Intent that details the terms of selling your business, including the price and date of sale from a qualified buyer.
Review proposal. You’ll have a window of time in which to review the terms of the sale and decide whether to accept the offer as-is or make a counteroffer.
Perform due diligence. Before you sell your business, make sure you and your trusted advisors thoroughly examine all the data to make sure every contingency is properly covered and there are no surprises in store for either party.
Close the deal. The buyer will meet with you to finalize the Purchase Agreement, hand over the check, and collect your keys.
Transition your business. To ensure the smoothest transition possible for your employees and clients, we’ll ask you to stay on for 90 days so you can introduce them to the new owner.
