HOW TO PICK A BUSINESS BROKERAGE FIRM
Identifying excellence in a professional business brokerage firm shouldn't be difficult. Take, for example, the following criteria:

  • Proven track record of successful business closings
  • High closing ratios
  • Ready access to buyers and sellers, both nationwide and internationally
  • Systems and processes to match buyers and sellers
  • Highly experienced and credentialed professionals
  • Unsurpassed standards of business ethic
  • Membership in all significant industry associations, group listing services, multiple listing services and brokerage networks

Founded in 1994 by Roger J. Murphy, Murphy Business & Financial Corporation meets these criteria. As a result, the firm has become one of the nation's largest and most successful business brokerage firms, with offices conveniently located throughout the United States.

Members of the Murphy team have been carefully recruited and selected for their high level of achievement as former CEOs, CFOs, CPAs, business owners and senior level executives in a wide range of industries and professions. But their accomplishments don't stop with their prior experience. Associates receive intensive training, ongoing support and many have subsequently received the highest awards, credentials and designations in our industry.

We invite you to learn more about Murphy's approach to the business brokerage profession. We hope to demonstrate how we provide both clients and professional partners with the highest standards of professional service and unmatched performance in the sales of privately held businesses, mergers, acquisitions, sales and re-sales of franchise businesses, commercial real estate transactions, business valuations, machinery & equipment appraisals and business consulting.



Why Use An Intermediary

The business owner is an expert at running the business but may not be as knowledgeable about the selling process. An intermediary will provide the business owner with strategic information regarding market timing, market conditions, market price, financing options, structuring the transaction and other information that is advantageous to the owner.

Facilitator
Procrastination and delay are critical factors when structuring a deal. Therefore, an intermediary will continually move the process forward with qualified buyers, financing resources, and ancillary associations to the deal such as CPAs and attorneys. An intermediary is in a better position to perform this function than the owner as he/she is focused on the life cycle of the deal. The owner will be allowed to focus on operating a profitable business.

Negotiations
Selling a business is often emotional for the business owner. An intermediary will act on behalf of the owner and will establish a strong negotiating position without compromising the goodwill and relationship between the principal parties. An intermediary will increase the opportunity to receive the best price for the business.

Resources
An intermediary is a skilled professional in the mergers & acquisition world and has established relationships with many professional organizations which are required to complete the transfer of ownership. These relationships will prove to be extremely beneficial to the business owner and the buyers.

Confidentiality
An owner could experience disastrous results by leaking that the business is for sale. Employees, customers, suppliers and competitors relationships could be damaged causing an adverse condition hurting the potential sale. An intermediary will preserve the confidentiality of the selling company during the process of marketing the business and only share information on a need to know basis.

Advisory
The business owner is an expert at running the business but may not be as knowledgeable about the selling process. An intermediary will provide the business owner with strategic information regarding market timing, market conditions, market price, financing options, structuring the transaction and other information that is advantageous to the owner.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I'm ready to sell my business. What is the first step?

Answer:  The decision to sell is an important one and preparation is required before placing your business on the market. The company's financial records and business operations must be evaluated and analyzed to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the company. A Business Valuation and a Market Analysis will provide you with the necessary information used to determine asking price, deal structure as well as identify potential buyers. Murphy Business Associates will prepare your business for sale and help you maximize your market potential.

Q: How do I determine what my business is worth?

Answer:  To determine the price of a business, the owner will need a Business Valuation. A Business Valuation is an appraisal or determination of the value of the business or property based on current and historical data and establishes Fair Market Value. Murphy Business would strongly urge any seller considering the sale of their business or buyer considering the purchase of an existing business to use a Certified Business Valuation as the criteria to establish a purchase or market price.

Q: How long does it take in order to sell my business?

Answer: Business transactions can happen quickly or they may take over a year before the buyer is located. The average transaction takes anywhere from 4 to 6 months. The key factors in the amount of time are pricing the business appropriately, aggressive marketing, having access to an abundance of buyers and ending sources who have approved the financing. Your Murphy Business Associate is a skilled Business Intermediary and will advise you in all aspects of these matters.

Q: How do you find a buyer?

Answer: Murphy Business is a National Organization having access to a large number of buyers. We market our listings in the appropriate media to generate buyer activity. We also search by industry and associated industries to stimulate buyer activity. The largest source of buyers happens to be our own Murphy Business network of brokers. Our goal is to locate qualified buyers who have determined a genuine interest, are willing to pay market value and are aspired to move quickly.

Q: How do I pick a broker?

Answer: We recommend that you interview as many intermediaries as necessary to find the person that fits your needs. Things to consider: Look for certifications: Professionals educate themselves on the finer matters of the profession. Ask for referrals: While we work confidentially, the broker should provide professional referrals national or local. Look for a broker who is on top of the local market but has national access through the organization he/she is associated with. Each individual at Murphy Business and Financial Corporation is a professional. Our associates have previously held CEO, CFO, VP or Director level executive positions or are former business owners. We believe our experience and professionalism differentiates us and allows us to provide the highest level of services to our clients whether they are buying or selling a business.

Franchise Sales Division

What Is Franchising?

The evolution of franchising can be traced back to the 1850s, but franchising as we understand it today started in the 1950s and has reached almost mythical stature over the last fifty years. A new franchise opens every 8 minutes of every business day and drives over 40% of all retail business. Annually, franchising accounts for over $800 Billion in sales, and employs over 8 Million people. Franchises are the most successful businesses on the planet with over 95% success rate and at the same time creating over 170,000 new jobs per year.

Who Buys Franchises?
The majority of franchise buyers are success-oriented, educated, family minded, corporate people. As corporations switched their focus from employees to investors, they realized how expensive their senior level employee had become and they began down-sizing their mid and upper level managers to save money and improve investor stakes in their companies. This growing number of outstanding corporate managers are now the driving force behind franchising and represent a constant stream of qualified franchise buyers through Murphy offices.

The Franchise Buyer
A 25 year study conducted by the International Franchise Association pinpointed the "Typical Franchise Buyer". Franchise buyers will come from all walks of life, educational and economic backgrounds, but some of the typical qualifications are:

  • Between 35 and 55 years old
  • Corporate Management Background
  • Income Avg. $80 to 150K
  • Net Worth of $300 to $800K
  • Majority Have IRA/401K Retirement Plans
  • Men, Couples, Women in that order
  • Most Have Not Owned a Business
  • Want to Build a Business That Will Allow Them To Retire
  • Looking For On-going Marketing, Training and Support

These are the same outstanding clients that come to Murphy offices seeking to buy their own businesses.

Murphy Franchise System
The Murphy Franchise organization is lead by Tom Miller, Executive Vice President of Murphy Business and Financial Corporation. He is a 25 year veteran of franchising and the recognized authority on franchising in the business brokerage community. All Murphy Franchise Consultants are highly trained and experienced in all aspects of franchising, and have owned, managed and sold franchises for many years before joining Murphy. There are a few thousand franchises available but Murphy Franchising is associated with only the finest franchises in America and work to find the "perfect franchise" for each of our Murphy clients.

Finding a Business for Sale with Murphy Business

And, as a client, these networks enable us to provide you with access to the broadest number of qualified, potential buyers or sellers - something you just can't get with many neighborhood real estate and business sales firms. Instead of having access to your own local market, we expose you to worldwide opportunities when buying a business, to find the best suitable business for sale.

Benefits of Buying a Business

We can help you buy a business at ease with an experienced professional with you every step of the way.

Through our global network affiliations, we have access to thousands of worldwide business for sale listings - many of which are never advertised publicly - giving you the maximum number of qualified candidates for purchase within your targeted geographic area of consideration. Murphy uncovers the maximum number of opportunities so you can buy a business, with the reassurance that you found the best suitable business for sale that meets your needs.

Our valuation experts can help determine the fair market value of the business in which you are interested to ensure that you're getting maximum value for your dollars spent.

Our affiliations with National and International Business Brokerage and Merger & Acquisition associations guarantee you that we adhere to the highest professional standards when helping you sell a business. And, as a client, these networks enable us to provide you with access to the broadest number of qualified, potential buyers - something you just can't get with many neighborhood real estate and business sales firms. Instead of having access to your own local market, we connect you worldwide.

Benefits of Selling a Business with Murphy

Since we specialize only in the sale of businesses, you won't find more knowledgeable experts anywhere. We use the same care in finding a qualified buyer for your business that we would if we were selling our own since we have all been successful business owners and/or managers prior to joining the firm. Selling a business with an experienced professional can help minimize sale time.

We can prepare a professional valuation of your business to determine its fair market value and ensure that it's priced appropriately, normally allowing us to sell a business faster.

We also create a complete Offering Portfolio that provides more information about your business than what appears in a typical one-page MLS form used by most brokers. We include the type of detailed information that a registered, qualified buyer will want to know to help them make a decision. Our experience is that this unique Murphy Business service helps us sell a business faster and for more money. Spending more time and attention preparing the sale results in a smoother sale when selling the business.

We design a custom plan to promote your business to likely buyers. This may include targeted marketing, direct mail, consumer and/or trade advertising, etc. as appropriate.

We directly market your business through our global networks and on multiple web sites. This means that you have hundreds of offices and thousands of brokers working with us to find just the right buyer.

We understand the importance of maintaining confidentiality, so information about your business is shared with potential buyers in stages only as their level of interest heightens. We do not disclose confidential information without a signed Confidentiality Agreement and work toward full disclosure with either an Offer to Purchase or a Letter of Intent.

We will use our banking contacts to assist the buyer in arranging financing. This includes traditional financing or SBA small business loans. By doing this we can also help to minimize the amount of seller financing, if any, needed.

Listing your business is only the first step in selling a business. We'll be with you to guide and assist throughout the entire process including the closing.

Irvine is an incorporated city in Orange County, California, United States. It is a planned city, mainly developed by the Irvine Company since the 1960s. Formally incorporated on December 28, 1971, the 69.7 square mile (180.5 km˛) city has a population of about 209,806 (as of January 1, 2008). It has annexed in the past an undeveloped area to the north, and has also annexed the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station, most of which is planned to be converted into the Orange County Great Park.

Because of its good schools, jobs and housing, the city was chosen in 2008 by CNNMoney.com as the fourth best place to live in the United States. In June 2008, the Federal Bureau of Investigation reported that Irvine had the lowest violent crime rate (four homicides, 17 rapes, 50 robberies and 55 aggravated assaults in 2006) among cities in the United States with populations of more than 100,000, and in August 2008 the Census Bureau ranked Irvine as having the seventh highest median income among cities in the United States with populations of more than 65,000.

Irvine is home to the University of California, Irvine (UCI), Concordia University, the Orange County Center of the University of Southern California, and the Irvine campuses of Alliant International University, California State University Fullerton, and Pepperdine University. Irvine Valley College, a community college, is also located in the city.

Irvine is home to a number of corporations, particularly in the technology sector.

A planned city

The layout of Irvine was designed by Los Angeles architect William Pereira and Irvine Company employee Raymond Watson, and is nominally divided into townships called villages. The townships are separated by six-lane streets. Each township contains houses of similar design, along with commercial centers, religious institutions and schools. Commercial districts are checker-boarded in a periphery around the central townships.

Pereira originally envisioned an Atlantis-like circular plan with numerous man-made lakes and the university in the center. When the Irvine Company refused to relinquish valuable farmland in the flat central region of the ranch for this plan, the University site was moved to the base of the southern coastal hills. The design that ended up being used was based on the shape of a necklace (with the villages strung along two parallel main streets, which terminate at University of California, Irvine (UCI), the "pendant") . Traces of the original circular design are visible in the layout of the UCI campus and the two man-made lakes at the center of Woodbridge, one of the central villages.

All streets have landscaping allowances. Rights-of-way for powerlines also serve as bicycle corridors, parks and greenbelts to tie together ecological preserves. The greenery is irrigated with reclaimed water.

The homeowners' associations which govern some village neighborhoods exercise varying degrees of control on the appearances of homes. In more restrictive areas, houses' roofing, paint colors, and landscaping are regulated. Older parts of the Village of Northwood that were developed beginning in the early 1970s independent of the Irvine Company, have the distinction of being a larger village that is not under the purview of a homeowners' association. As a result, homeowners in the older Northwood areas do not pay a monthly village association fee; and its neighborhoods are generally not as uniform in appearance as those in other villages such as West Park and Woodbridge, the latter which, however, generally offer more amenities such as members-only swimming pools, tennis courts, and parks.

In addition to association dues, homeowners in villages developed in the 1980s and later may be levied a Mello-Roos assessment, which came about in the post-Proposition 13 era. For homeowners in these areas, the association dues coupled with the Mello-Roos assessment may add significantly to the cost of living in the city.

The Irvine Ranch played host to the Boy Scouts of America's 1953 National Scout Jamboree. Jamboree Road, a major street which now stretches from Newport Beach to the City of Orange, was named in honor of this event.

ABOUT ORANGE COUNTY:

Orange County is a county in Southern California, United States. Its county seat is Santa Ana. According to the 2000 Census, its population was 2,846,289, making it the second most populous county in the state of California, and the fifth most populous in the United States. The state of California estimates its population as of 2007 to be 3,098,121 people, dropping its rank to third, behind San Diego County. Thirty-four incorporated cities are located in Orange County; the newest is Aliso Viejo.

Unlike many other large centers of population in the United States, Orange County uses its county name as its source of identification whereas other places in the country are identified by the large city that is closest to them. This is because there is no defined center to Orange County like there is in other areas which have one distinct large city. Five Orange County cities have populations exceeding 170,000 while no cities in the county have populations surpassing 360,000. Seven of these cities are among the 200 largest cities in the United States.

Orange County is also famous as a tourist destination, as the county is home to such attractions as Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm, as well as sandy beaches for swimming and surfing, yacht harbors for sailing and pleasure boating, and extensive area devoted to parks and open space for golf, tennis, hiking, kayaking, cycling, skateboarding, and other outdoor recreation. It is at the center of Southern California's Tech Coast, with Irvine being the primary business hub.

The average price of a home in Orange County is $541,000. Orange County is the home of a vast number of major industries and service organizations. As an integral part of the second largest market in America, this highly diversified region has become a Mecca for talented individuals in virtually every field imaginable. Indeed the colorful pageant of human history continues to unfold here; for perhaps in no other place on earth is there an environment more conducive to innovative thinking, creativity and growth than this exciting, sun bathed valley stretching between the mountains and the sea in Orange County.

Orange County was Created March 11 1889, from part of Los Angeles County, and, according to tradition, so named because of the flourishing orange culture. Orange, however, was and is a commonplace name in the United States, used originally in honor of the Prince of Orange, son-in-law of King George II of England.
