The results of this online questionnaire will start to answer what is surely your first questions when preparing for exit “What might my business be worth?” and “How ready is my business for an exit?”

Prepare for Exit

If you are considering selling your business, or think this may be an option, we would encourage you to prepare for exit now.

In our experience, the first question shareholders ask when preparing for exit is “what is the business worth?” followed by “how can we improve that valuation?” and “what do I need to do to prepare my business for sale”?

To help you with these questions, we’ve built, as the first step, an online tool.  This questionnaire-based tool, designed specifically for technology companies, will help you assess how ready the business is for exit and what your initial business valuation might be.

Managing the Sell-side Process

M&A advisory

When the time is right for an exit, we are here to support you through the sale process too.  Our unique value proposition is our willingness to travel the full lifecycle of the business regardless of the timeframe.

By working with you to prepare for exit and focussing on a longer-term approach, we gain an intimate insight into how the business works. This significantly improves communication with potential buyers and the quality of the process from sales materials production to data room generation.

We have found this close partnership enables us to establish superior buyer lists, communicate more effective messaging, and ultimately create the competitive tension that can build valuation throughout the process.

Isosceles is proud of its successful track record of helping technology companies achieve their full potential.

As founder and CEO of LINE, handing over control for our staff and clients was one of the most important, difficult and personal decisions of my business life.

Mike and the Isosceles team have been helping us with the decision and preparation over many years so that when the time came we knew it was right.

The Isosceles team were with us every step of the way and were a critical part of our successful transaction.

Piers Lea, CEO, LINE Communications

We wanted an experienced partner with a win/win negotiation style. Isosceles managed the seller’s expectation so a mutually realistic valuation could be agreed. They kept the transaction simple and straightforward and are easy to work with.

David McLeman, CEO, Ancoris

We really needed to make sure we knew what we were buying. We did consider using one of the ‘big four’ to help us but their charges were prohibitive and they were unfamiliar with MDSL. Isosceles on the other hand knew us well, were far more cost effective, and also had the individuals with the commercial and financial acumen we needed.

Ben Mendoza, CEO at MDSL

The results speak for themselves. Business Objects acquired Edgewing on the terms we wanted. When issues arose Isosceles were able to resolve them in a calm and easy manner which left the buyer and seller feeling they were both winning.

Steve Crook, CEO, Edgwing

Isosceles have supported us all the way from our MBO. They offer a rare blend of pragmatic business skills and first-rate finance and accounting expertise.
