Exit Planning: Are You Really Ready to Make an Exit?

Benjamin Franklin once said “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” This saying holds true when talking about exiting your business. Although most business owners know they will someday sell their business, very few have a plan in place to do so. While it is commonplace to simply assume you will someday sell your business, cash the check and move off into the sunset, the reality is business owners who fail to plan their exit do not receive the same economic value (if any) for their business as those who do. So the question you should be asking yourself  is not “when should I exit my business?”, but rather “how soon should I start planning my exit?”

Close to Retirement? Then You Need an Exit Strategy

If you own a business, your most valuable asset is likely your closely held interest in that company. And if you are nearing retirement, you need an exit strategy. The good news is that there are many options for you to consider. The M&A advisors and investment bankers of Doeren Mayhew Capital Advisors have outlined just a few.


Value Drivers and Drainers

Knowing the value of a business — and understanding how to increase that value — is key to maximizing price when it is time to sell. Further, focusing on value drivers and trends in the business over time can also help turn around a distressed company before it is too late. But what value drivers should be considered, and why? To increase value, owners must understand how hypothetical buyers would perceive their business operations. The M&A advisors at Doeren Mayhew Capital Advisors provide key factors investors look for when valuing a business interest.
