Who is it for?
SME business leaders who wish to prepare for an orderly exit or transition of their business, and to capture the wealth created over the years.
What is covered?
We will facilitate planning sessions with the owners and selected leadership team members. The aim is to help the existing owners to be clear about what they will need to do now, to prepare for an orderly transfer of ownership over the next few years.
Of course, to achieve the best price, a willing buyer will need to be clear about the level of risk which he/ she is exposing themselves to.
So in effect this piece of work is about preparing the business to be in the best shape that it can be.
The downside risks are identified and managed; the upside opportunities are being systematically targeted and won; and the organisation’s staff are clear about their roles and deliverables; and appropriate governance is in place for top management to have a good view of how the business is performing.
Simple to say… but harder to put in place.
Why is it valuable?
In effect a good exit plan can help the business owner capture and retain the significant value which they have built over the years.
