KeyStone requires that all potential Buyers register with us. This process not only protects the Seller, but also allows us to serve you to the best of our ability. The registration process allows you access to the current business opportunities that we have available. You can register with the Buyer Registration Form located on the rights side panel. This access provides you, the potential Buyer, with the following:
Confidential Business Profile:
As a registered Buyer, you will receive regular updates on businesses that meet your specific criteria and have become available to us through the mailing of our Confidential Business Profile summary. This one-page profile provides you the information you need to determine if the business is one which you would like to further research.
Confidential Business Review (CBR):
As you narrow down which businesses you would like to receive more comprehensive information on, we will then provide to you a Confidential Business Review (CBR). This CBR includes detailed information on the business, including; company overview, products/services provided, competition, facilities, inventory & equipment included, financial history, forecasted cash flow, and a summary of the business history. KeyStone requires that the Seller has an active role in preparing this information and all finalized materials must be approved and signed off by the Seller. You will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement prior to receiving the CBR.
