Tips for Selling an Online Business to Una Brands
1. Healthy Company Finance
Clean book-keeping and having all existing financial statements readily available are important indicators of your company's financial health. This includes but is not limited to having separate business and personal accounts, so our acquisitions and investments teams can quickly and easily determine the costs of your business. Additionally, keeping track of your SDE (Seller Discretionary Earnings) is also important, as it indicates good financial practice and we can evaluate the financial status of your company easier.
2. Revenue of US$1mm to US$20mm
While Una does occasionally consider smaller brands, we are generally looking for brands within this revenue range with growth potential. If your company is on its way to achieving this goal but hasn’t quite achieved it, reach out to us anyway! We’ll add you to our seller community so we can keep in touch. This is where we post company updates, host webinars, and more!
3. More than 15% Net Profit Margin
While revenue is important, Una is also concerned about the net profit margin of your company, in order to accurately determine both valuation and growth potential. If your company is experiencing a spike or a dip in sales, being able to pinpoint why and explain any financial disparities is also an added bonus when selling your online business!
4. At least 70% of sales from Online Channels
Una is based in Singapore, with 7 global offices: Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, Australia, and India. That means that while we’d love to take over your business operations, in order to do so more efficiently, most of your sales would be online. However, our vast network of employees and offices around the world can guarantee that the scaling and growth of your brand in the APAC region is unparalleled!
5. Your Story
While all the above criteria are important to Una Brands, we are fundamentally most interested in learning about you, and your story!
