A generally positive but also fragile and uncertain economic future is the outcome of a survey of thousands of business buyers, sellers and business brokers from around the world by BusinessesForSale.com.
The survey points to many prospective business buyers wanting to capitalise on low credit rates and a perceived buyers' market for business opportunities.
By far the most common reason given by the 86% who believe it's the right time to buy a business is that continuing economic uncertainty promises low prices, with about half (49%) citing this reason.
There are also signs that the credit drought is easing, with roughly the same amount of buyers finding it easy to obtain credit as those who believe it's difficult, 28 and 26% respectively.
