Discussions and negotiations regarding the sale of a business may be initiated and conducted in various ways.
In some cases an interested party may approach another business expressing an interest in an acquisition. This may be a direct approach by the buyer, or through an agent such as a business broker or attorney. In other instances, sellers may initiate sale discussions with an identified likely buyer, or multiple potential buyers, either by direct contact or again through an agent such as a broker or attorney.
