With the majority of our services focused on buyer due diligence, we are perfectly positioned to help business owners anticipate and prepare for the due diligence that they will be subjected to when exiting.
For an entrepreneur, the point of exit is the culmination of years of hard work for which you are justifiably entitled to expect to get a fair return. The value perceived by a purchaser will take little account of the sweat and toil of your journey and will purely focus on a narrow set of judgement calls on where you have got to. Understanding the valuation methodology and measurement criteria, in conjunction with the more subjective impressions a buyer will be influenced by, in order to present the business in its most favourable light, is probably the most important and financially rewarding duty of a business owner. Preparations for exit should, ideally, commence at least two years before the event and the investment in professional assistance with this process can make a substantial difference to the eventual pay off for your labours.
