Fact - 88% of businesses that get listed for sale never sell. It takes a skilled partner to guide the sale of a company, and it takes an exit event specialist to maximize its value.
Let us unlock the wealth in your business.
The most important transaction of your life
Selling your business is the most important deal of your life. If executed well it will set you and your family up for life. If executed poorly you will regret it until the day you die. Our team has been on both sides of that transaction, having learned from massive successes and painful failures. These experiences ignited our passion to help others achieve wealth through the sale of their company. Now, we work with business owners to ensure their ideal exit is not just a dream but becomes a reality.
Selling your company is a big decision
Deciding to sell is a gut-wrenching decison. We know because we’ve been there many times. It may feel counter-intuitive, but the best time to sell your business is when things are going well. A new buyer wants to know the business has room to grow and additional upside. This allows them to buy into the excitement of untapped potential. Unfortunately, most people wait until after their business is declining to start the exit process which hurts the valuation. It's never too early to start looking at your options and planning for the future.
There is a massive difference between a financial buyer and a strategic buyer. Financial buyers assess your business very scientifically - they only look at the numbers to determine the value of your business, then negotiate downwards. Strategic buyers, however, embrace the untapped potential of the business and are willing to pay much more for your company. That's why our process involves a custom-tailored, global search for strategic buyers for each and every company we touch.
Negotiation is key
The difference between a stellar exit and an average exit often comes down to negotiation. But an exit event is unlike any other type of sales process - you can be the best salesperson in the world and still negotiate a poor exit as you don't know the "tricks of the trade." A savvy strategic buyer can structure the deal in a way that hurts your upside. This is why having a partner in the exit process is critical. Our team has been through the exit process so many times that we've created a process and standard operating procedures around exit events. We negotiate the deal along side you to achieve results 25% - 40% higher than typical exits.
Leverage expertise from those that have been where you are
M&A firms and brokers are generalists. They engage dozens of companies at a time hoping a couple "bingo" each year. In truth, the majority of M&A firms close between 0 - 2 deals a year. Our model is entirely different. We only work with a select few businesses at a time, focusing entirely on their exit events. This is one of the reasons our success rates are so high. Focus on the few, not the many.
