Successful and Confidential Exits for Small Business Owners

Successful and Confidential Exits for Small Business Owners

Business Brokerage and Exit Planning help small business owners prepare for a business transition or exit. We maintain confidentiality while getting the best price for a business sale.

Advance planning for an eventual exit can have a big impact on the final financial reward that a business owner can realize from the sale of the business.

Exit Planning

Exit Planning is a dynamic strategy which will allow an owner to be ready for an exit on his or her terms. There is no best time to exit your business; but, there is a worst time – when you are not prepared and you need to exit. Too many owners exit their business when they have to because of external factors like their health, the economy, or other unforeseen circumstances.

Having a strategy for a successful exit – whenever you decide to exit, or need to exit can be the difference between a regretful exit or a successful exit.

You may decide to liquidate, sell to insiders, sell to family, sell to an ESOP or sell to an outsider. You should proactively decide which option will fulfill your retirement and lifestyle goals.

Business Valuation

Business Valuation


There are many reasons to get a business valuation – estate planning, partner buyouts, divorce, or the sale of a business are all good reasons. Many business owners are not sure if they want to sell until they know the value of their business. Different valuations for different reasons have different requirements. We can provide three different levels of business valuation, each suitable for a different purpose.
