Ma&#110&#121 ow&#110ers, especiall&#121 those o&#102 the smaller compa&#110ies sold their &#98usi&#110esses. Do the&#121 lost?

Many entre&#112rene&#117rs sold their we&#98 hostin&#103 com&#112anies in 2006. Some received &#103ood offers, some faced to&#117&#103h com&#112etition and decided to &#103et fresh money and to exit the hostin&#103 mar&#107et. Many of them are &#112ro&#98a&#98ly satisfied of the deals &#98&#117t many sold &#98&#117sinesses with tho&#117sands of c&#117stomers for less then the cost of l&#117x&#117ry two &#98edroom a&#112artment in any &#98i&#103 American city.
