Selling a Wholesale Distribution Business California

Companies in the wholesale sector distribute nondurable or durable goods, typically specializing in a certain product category. While Amazon has a large stake in this industry, the rise of eCommerce of various types makes this kind of business still very desirable. In the US alone, this industry brings in nearly $7.8 trillion annually.


Revenue growth for the wholesale industry has been strong over the last decade compared to other businesses, and it will likely continue to follow that trend. Since many distributors finance their inventory, they can be sensitive to interest rates, so the current low rates are a good sign, making these businesses a desirable investment.

When selling a wholesale distribution business in California, often one of the keys is the negotiation of your lease before you even decide to sell if you don’t own the property your business is on. Will your landlord be willing to transfer the lease to a new owner? Will there be fees, and will that person need to go through a vetting and qualification process?  These are all great questions.

You can know the answers to those questions and more before you even start the selling process. But just as important is finding a buyer who is qualified, which means they need to be able to finance your business. This starts with a certified business valuation, the type that can be used by a lender, and with vetting the buyer to be sure they can obtain the financing they will need.
