How to Build a Business Exit Strategy

By Generational Equity

As North America’s number one middle market M&A firm, Generational Equity (part of the Generational Group) works exclusively with business owners with a revenue between $1million and $200million. We’re dedicated to bringing Wall Street strategies, knowledge and approach to Main Street businesses across North America and beyond.

75% of businesses owners sell their company for less than it’s worth – therefore the importance of understanding the value of your business can’t be overstated. At Generational Equity it’s our proven M&A process that helps our clients to achieve their acquisition goals. By completing a detailed evaluation beforehand, we can help you understand your business’s true value. We’ll also ask meaningful questions and analyze your company’s complete financials in order to unlock hidden value. On the completion of this process, we will present you with a detailed evaluation document which gives you and fair and accurate projection of your company’s value. This comprehensive resource, along with our team’s advice, will provide you with clarity on the decision to sell.

If you’re not quite ready to take your business to market, our job doesn’t end there. We will still provide you with a Roadmap for Enhancing Value, to drive your business forward and prepare it for a time when you are ready to sell. When you are ready to sell we will draw up some of the most detailed documentation in the industry, ready to take you market and promote your business to our global network of over tens of thousands of active buyers. Once you’ve received an offer, our dealmakers are there to negotiate and structure the deal on your behalf, making sure that you achieve the best deal possible.

Time and again we’ve helped owners to exit their businesses, we’re proud to have successfully closed over 500 deals with a total valuation of nearly $2.7 billion. You can find out how you can achieve your own success by attending one of our educational workshops, where you’ll learn invaluable exit strategies for your business.
