Business Exit Planning: Options, Value Enhancement, and Transaction Management for Business Owners

The decision of whether to exit your business or not is never just a simple yes or no answer. Most business owners find the issue difficult to grapple with because it is not just one decision. Rather, in most cases, there are many interrelated decisions to be made. For example: How much money will you receive upon exit? What is the best timing for your exit, given the economic cycle of your country and industry? What kind of advisors will you need? And what will happen to your staff, clients, and business partners? Business Exit Planning explains the two major phases of leaving a business: Business Exit Planning and Transaction Management (that is, what a business owner needs to know in managing the exit transaction). It will equip you, the business owner, with a full overview of what's involved in exiting your business. The book provides a wealth of illustrative case studies covering the wide range of options available to owners of mid-sized businesses, including inter-generational transfer, merger, liquidation, and more, as well as options for owners who seek an immediate exit and options for those who prefer a staged exit over time.
