When you’re selling your SaaS, you’ll likely receive offers from potential buyers in the form of letters of intent (LOIs). An LOI is a document that outlines the key terms of the proposed deal.

Maybe you’re ready to move on to your next project — or you’re just curious about what kind of opportunities are out there as you grow your business.

We’re launching a new free, live webinar on SaaS valuation each month to demystify the topic and help you plan.
When you sell a SaaS business what you’re typically selling is the code base that runs your product, the cash flow from your current customers, and potential future growth.So the code base of your product is obviously a super important part of what a potential buyer will review before they make you an offer.

Consolidating all this data will take hours (perhaps days), but if you prepare it in advance, you’ll help your startup get acquired. How? You can respond to buyers’ requests quickly and easily and resolve issues before they arise.
