Seller Errors: Expensive Missteps to Avoid

Business owners selling their company often make serious missteps along the way that can result in less cash from sale, if the deal gets closed at all. Selling successfully requires extensive advance preparation and strategizing to ensure the company shines brightly when it is shown to the marketplace. Moreover, finding the right universe of potential buyers can be essential to producing not only the highest valuation, but also the best fit for the company and the employees. The investment bankers at Doeren Mayhew Capital Advisors share some of the most expensive seller mistakes to avoid.


Mailhes Shares M&A Insight on STA Money Hour Radio Show

Houston Shareholder Jennifer Mailhes was recently a guest on STA Money Hour’s radio show “Financial Planning Friday,” where she discussed the firm’s upcoming M&A Insight event and more with host Scott Bishop.

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?”
