Sell a Business
Selling the Business is not part of the business owner’s daily routine and relying on your traditional resources might not provide the results that bring you to a worry-free retirement in value creation, or worse the business may simply not sell or lose value over the course of the sale process, because it takes too much time.
Timing the market to sell, works well when you are prepared to sell, and you can move very quickly. That is however not the standard situation, as many times the Buyer / Seller relation is not an immediate match.
If you're selling, the fundamental positions are very limited:
• Sell to Family or to one or multiple Employees
• Run the Business out and close the Door
• Sell to a third party Strategic or Individual Buyer
• There might be an option to sell part of your Business to a PEG, and you continue to run the Business (this might be an option when you need Capital to grow, or want some share in risk / responsibility)
Why not let the professional handle the sale of your Business, while you continue to oversee it and continue to increase its Value?
