Have Your Exit Strategy Mapped Out

The Bigger Picture In Selling Your Business

Your Business Sale Plan

One of the first challenges when it comes to selling your business is to understand how the process works. Only then can you step up to the challenge of making the most out of your business sale.

For most, the sale process follows these four steps:

  1. Preparing – getting you, your business and your future mapped out
  2. Engagement – finding the right suppliers of services and support to help make your sale a success
  3. Negotiating – once engaged with a potential buyer, working to ensure you reach a successful conclusion
  4. Completing – once an offer has been accepted, clearing all the final hurdles and achieving completion, and planning the steps beyond

For some companies, the process can be accelerated, particularly if a buyer approaches you, but it’s important to understand that in each of these areas you have different challenges to face.

In our experience, most successful business sales result from a number of small wins rather than one decision or breakthrough, so every stage, every decision, every step is important and will influence your future.
