How Can I Prepare My Business For Exit?

Before starting the process of selling your business, it is vital that you prepare for exit first. A business that is ready to be sold and can demonstrate that it is operationally well run will achieve a higher valuation and be sold more quickly. Additionally, should the business receive an unexpected approach, it will be in a good position to react with a successful exit more likely.

How can I prepare my business for exit?

There are many different reasons for selling a business, but there is one consistent factor; preparation for exit is everything.

Failing to prepare for exit could mean:

  • A reduced valuation
  • An opportunity for the buyer to erode that valuation and reduce the price they are prepared to pay
  • A long and tortuous due diligence process
  • A protracted sales negotiation
  • Ultimately, it could also mean that the sale never actually succeeds
