The ABC’s of Exit Planning

Assessment (Valuation): Determine business value using multiple approaches to arrive at a business price for planning purposes.  It is not to be used for tax or other litigation purposes. These limited valuations are referred to as a Calculation Report and are useful for determining a likely price a buyer is willing to pay for your business. 

Business Sales:

  • Planning to Sell – The most popular approaches to selling your business may not be the best ones for you.  Our firm explores several alternative methods to discover the right fit for you and your company.  Next, we chart how to reach your stated goals.  We determine how long it will likely take and what action steps will be required. 
  • Discreet Marketing – This step typically includes executive summaries, comprehensive business memorandums, financial recasting, preparation of financial statements, advertising, prospecting, qualifying, presentations, selling strategy and site visits. 
  • Support – We confidentially work throughout the selling process from the initial visit with the buyer to the closing of the business sale.   We negotiate with the buyer to maintain your favorable pricing, terms and conditions.  For the buyer, we assist to find satisfactory financing.   We help the buyer and seller through a successful due diligence process while gathering all documents needed for the lender along with the proper legal documents needed for a successful closing.
