Gunnink & Company Business Brokers

For the Business Brokers in Western Australia, things are on the UP.
The inquiries of buyers to purchase a business has increased threefold in the last three months and has lifted our spirits.

2016/2017 saw a significant drop in sales activity and speaking with fellow brokers, they too have experienced much lower than usual business activity. Some brokers have left the profession and have sought out alternative revenue streams.

Five months ago it appears as though someone flicked a switch and the calls started coming in, people started showing signs of interest in both purchasing and selling.

In the past five months, demand is still strong and we anticipate this activity to be maintained or increased well into 2018.

Here at Gunnink & Co., we’ve noticed a three-fold increase in telephone inquiries and a five-fold increase in email inquiries. This compared to six months ago, is very encouraging business activity in Western Australia.

Having account figures ready and available for a purchaser provides speedier transactions and fosters good business relationship building.

This financial year is shaping up to be a strong year of business transacting on the back of some sluggish previous years. Business Insider is reporting that the Jobs report has “smashed expectations”, and that in the past three months we’ve seen the fastest pace of hiring since November 2004.

According to the ABS, employment jumped by 42,000 in seasonally adjusted terms, easily surpassing expectations for an increase of 10,000.

Additionally, NFIB is reporting that job openings and plans to create new jobs lead to increases in the small business optimism index by 1.6% to 105.2.

Here’s to a bright 2017 financial year!

According to business reporter Michael Janda from ABC news, the US federal reserve interest rates are on the rise. He comments that in a globalised market, investors are likely to put their cash in places which attract higher interest rates. Naturally, as that happens, the local market will respond, and Australian banks will be forced to raise their rates accordingly.

So if you are genuinely looking for a business, the time to lock the interest rates is now for the next few years now and you be glad to have done so!

Business sales have been very depressed over the last 18 months and the multiples of (net profit) buying a business have dropped significantly in the last years, so now is the perfect time to buy the perfect business!
