Avoid These Exit Planning Mistakes

Is your business thriving?  Are you edging closer to retirement or in need of a change?  Knowing when to sell your business is a difficult decision.  You want to leave at a time when you will make the maximum profit but also when it is right for your personal life.  When planning your exit, be sure to follow our tips and avoid these common mistakes:

Timing Is Everything:  Now might not be the right time to sell but it is the perfect time to plan.  For anyone looking to sell their business for the maximum price, they should start planning well in advance.  This will give them the opportunity to create goals, prepare the business and be ready when the right time does come along.  After all, timing is key when deciding to sell your business.

Stay On Your Toes:  Instead of waiting for a deal to come to you, actively seek the deal you want.  It is highly unlikely that someone will serve you the price you’ve always dreamed of on a golden platter.  You should take the time to develop and implement an exit plan with a business marketing professional who knows what buyers are looking for.

Consider Every Option:  There are a number of options when it comes to selling your business.  Many people believe that outright sale of a company is the only option but there is also management buyout, recapitalization, sale to financial buyer, sale to a strategic buyer and more.  When you talk to professionals, they will help you find an option that fits your needs and ideals.

Be Patient:  Exiting your business is a significant moment but it will not come with the snap of a finger.  Selling a business is a complex process that involves marketing strategies, legislative and tax implications, unexpected roadblocks and challenges.  The most important thing to do is run your business smoothly and let the professionals execute your exit plan.

Trust In Professionals:  To ensure your best results, hire an experienced team of business brokers with the expertise, marketing resources and skills to successfully sell your business.  Exiting your business can be a very overwhelming task but an experienced team can help handle the process smoothly and with little problem.
