I think i am going to offer to buy him out as well, just fish around on what sort of cash he wants. 

 

Much better idea.

it would depend on how he was merged in

 

Perhaps 'he' is thinking you're the one being merged in ?

As you've outgrown him, and if he doesn't want to sell, start off suggesting he gets 40% of the merger and don't go above 49% Then at least you control what goes on.

We never met but had a quick chat on the phone. From what I can gather his business is in a mess and he wants me to save it. I’ve actually made him an offer with a big deposit and 6 payments but he said no because he hasn’t got anything else lined up. 

 

He’s got more customers than me but the average isn’t great. 

 

Youngest van is 7 years old vs ours which is 2 years old. 

 

No good poles, systems or planning software. 

 

If he paid me I’d fix it and we’d just continue separate. 

 

I would be more interested in buying it now.

With this new info i'd put down a solid cash offer and wait till he's had enough.  Maybe put a few weeks time limit on it to give him some urgency.

It makes you wonder how some one can have the brains and dedication to build a sizeable business then slowly run it in to the ground.If it has problems and in a mess with no recent investment chances are his run up debt against it probably not paid his VAT bill or similar.If he had the ability to get it to a multi van business you would think he would know how to sort it.

No one should want out of a good profitable business especially with nothing lined up chances are his bang in trouble and would you want to chuck in excess of 100k at a load of rubbish.

The meet up was for that very reason as I wanted to see some basic accounts and how he’s keeping track etc and what sort of business man he is. 

 

He gives his guys say like 20 houses todo then when they’ve finished they go home, but he gets several complaints a week but just gives customers free cleans!!! 

 

That’s just one example of what needs fixing.

 

i would buy him out but that’s only because it’s a fairly low ish offer I guess.

There are a lot of people out there that can build businesses very quickly, the good business men know when to consolidate before going again. Sounds like this guy falls into the bracket of to big to quick and didn't truly understand what his business required.

I would allow him to fail, then target his work.

 

Only joking!

 

What are your stress levels like?
