The new sites are designed to be mobile first, that is to be a ready tool in your pocket to visit whenever you need information about buying a business, transitioning a business, positioning a business to sell, or obtaining a quick business valuation at no cost.
In addition, the new websites provide a fresh approach to business buying and selling. LaManna is aiming to disrupt the traditional broker model with a new model – action-oriented, affordable to businesses of all sizes, dynamically responsive to the changing landscape, incorporating top thought leadership and best practices, with the most recent and most comprehensive data.
“This year, I’ve dramatically adapted my business to respond to the needs of my clients,” says LaManna. “We’re not brokering deals, we’re facilitating deal flow and success through introductions, facilitation, preparation and education. We’re reacting to the rigorous demands of today’s buyers, who require quick decision making and prompt action in a regulated environment.”
LaManna explains that investment groups and consolidators have hard deadlines and mandated steps to complete each phase. If a seller delays the process, the buyer moves on. He warns, “A seller who is not prepared may miss out on deal flow opportunities to sell for a generous yet reasonable price and terms – despite our current unpredictable market conditions.”
LaManna advises that owners who invest in an expert to help them properly positioned the business can attract these quick-moving, motivated buyers as they receive their funding.
“It’s a brave new world,” says LaManna. “Sellers have options.”
Heading into 2021, the prospects for the flexible packaging and label manufacturing sector remain bright for those wishing to sell their businesses. By 2022, technology advancements may require owners to invest before selling and to capture larger market shares to remain attractive to buyers. The coming year will be a prime time to sell the type of business that leaves room for the buyer to make improvements and optimize operations. However, as the industry constricts, smaller businesses will have a harder time competing, driving down their profitability and EBITDA.
“There is definitely a near horizon where sellers can have the best of both worlds,” LaManna adds. “We’re advising sellers to take action now while there is buyer demand and before the market shrinks.”
