According to Frances Brunelle, President of Accelerated Manufacturing Brokers, selling a manufacturing company requires consideration of several factors, including automation-readiness. Brunelle’s article is featured in Automation.com magazine.
Brunelle suggested tax legislation has created favorable conditions for selling manufacturing companies. IndustryWeek reported the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 allowed corporations to bring money that had been stuck overseas back into the U.S.
Most manufacturing enterprise buyers need financing to purchase a business; it is important to consider the current interest rates on business loans. Interest rates are low; affordable financing makes buying a manufacturing company more feasible for more buyers.
The condition of a manufacturing business will affect its value. First and foremost, thanks to the rapid technological advancements of Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and big data (enhancing real-time decision-making and predictive analytics), manufacturing is changing beyond simple production.
A buyer looking to purchase a manufacturing company will consider how much advanced technology is already implemented. Outdated production methods will require a prospective buyer to calculate how much of an investment will be needed to bring the manufacturing facility up to date.
Another consideration for buyers is whether current staff is trained in new technologies – and if not, how much it will cost to bring them up to speed. Clearly, the more investments needed to contemporize a manufacturing plant, the lower the price offered.
