What We Know Your Business Is Your Future… Most owners want to leave their businesses within next 5-10 years. Most owners will never be able to leave their businesses in style. Most owners have no plan to grow value or to exit their businesses. Most owners work in, not on, their businesses.
The Market Value of Your Business Current M & A Marketplace 20 percent of businesses are for sale, but only one out of four actually sells. Businesses with sales of $10 million per year aren’t much better – only one-third sell. Above $10 million per year, the odds improve to 50-50.
Every business owner wants to receive the maximum amount of money in order to accomplish personal, financial, income and estate planning goals. “Beauty is in the eye of the buyer.”

Choosing your Exit Path - Selling to a Third Party vs. Transferring to Insiders As Yogi Berra said: “You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there.”
Ability to sell and business value are determined by: –Intrinsic Value: the value drivers. –Extrinsic Value: the value the market places on the business. –Effectiveness of the sale process. Third Party Sales – Not Just About the Business “Making a mountain out of a mole hill”
