Exit Strategies

 

Exit Strategies

When it is time for your business to “transition,” you need to think about the details of your exit strategy.

Is someone cashing out? Is there is a sale of the business? Is someone merging or acquiring another enterprise?

We sit with our clients and analyze business scenarios from our experience and available options, to help you formulate the “best deal” possible to meet your goals.

We then are able to write the deal terms and review comments from the other side.

We assist you to negotiate the deal to successful closure. We would love to work with you during this transitional period.

EXAMPLES OF EXIT STRATEGIES:

  • Acquisition
  • Initial Public Offering
  • Operate Business Long Term
  • Grow the Business
  • Merger
  • Joint Venture (JV)

CHALLENGES

  • Are you ready to retire or sell your business and would like to talk over strategies for how you might accomplish that to the best return on investment?
  • Has your business grown enough to need additional operating capital from mezzanine investors from public or private equity markets?
  • Is your company growing faster than you can handle the growth due to the need for qualified professionals to handle operational activities?
  • Would you like someone to talk to related to setting objectives for management (and possibly compensation agreements around those objectives), someone that understands the technology business and is able to give you a third-party view without having to involve your Board, until you know what you would like to propose to them?
  • Want someone you can trust, that has your interests in mind, and that you could have a professional relationship with over the next 10 years?
  • Every company must have a goal in sight whether it is expansion or simple survival. If company sale is foreseeable then a sound public offering must be given thought.
