Exit Planning, Valuations & Financial Due Diligence

Delivering a successful ‘exit’ for your clients

The ultimate goal of all Business Owners should be to build equity value in their business and when the time comes, to exit successfully.

However, 90% of businesses end up being wound up and not even marketed for sale. Of those that are put on the market, 80% fail to sell, and of those that do sell, less than 5% achieve their target valuation*.

All too often the timing of an owner’s exit is not under their control, approximately about 50% are forced to exit early due to illness, divorce, shareholder disputes or family crisis. If the business is not ‘Exit Ready’ the outcome will be potentially disastrous, and given the fact that for many owners, their business is their pension this is an damning inditement on the support they receive and on the advice and guidance they receive.

Preparing for exit is not a quick process, it takes up to a year to sort out the reporting after which the business will ideally build up at least 3 years of robust Management Reports, that’s 4 years, and if you add to that the fact it can take up to 12 months to complete the sale process, owners should start planning at least 5 years before they plan to exit.

The good news is that preparing a business for exit is not hard, but it takes time and planning. As your clients most trusted advisor and ideally their first point of contact for matters such as business valuation and exit you are ideally placed to make a real difference to your client’s live post work AND better still, this work is extremely well remunerated with the potential to earn more in fee income than any other activity.
