There can be real price differentials

Andy and Jessica are bringing the experts to talk about all about insurance, an issue that comes in a variety of forms while selling a business, from workers comp to property insurance for hurricanes. There can be real price differentials; things can change from year to year since the amount is based on your revenue, so if the company has grown its revenue or employee size, or even in the case that some companies can be underinsured and when is requoted, the numbers can double what the company was paying, affecting the bottom line SDE number and consequently the value of the company. A great insurance broker and partner in your deal is a must! One of the guests talks about how different industries can be affected when talking about insurance since workers comp is a major insurance expense for some specific companies where employees are exposed to more accidents. In a different scenario, when there is financing involved, the owner is going to need health insurance. You can’t miss this episode, since lots of these topics are not usually addressed, and being informed about the insurance aspect will get you prepared to avoid unfortunate surprises when selling or buying a business.
