Exit Strategy

The Bigger Picture In Selling Your Business

What Does Exit Strategy Mean?

In the context of a business sale, an exit strategy is a business owner’s decisive and forward-thinking roadmap of plans and preparations to sell the business.

Exit strategies include selling the company to a buyer (a trade sale), selling it to the management team (management buy-out or MBO), or even taking the company public via an initial public offering (IPO) on the stock market. The choice entirely depends on the business owner’s goals and circumstances.
