It may seem illogical to plan an exit strategy as your business sprouts from the seeds of an idea. Most business owners are forward facing, identifying opportunities to advance and weed out inconsistencies; securing a stable corporate and cultural position.

Exit Strategies are the ultimate end game; planning for your market departure will assist in optimising the sale price and continued success of your brand. With your legacy safe, the security of a comfortable retirement without compromise is well within your grasp. To be competitive in a saturated sales market, a business must stand out!

Don't Think You Need One? Read On...

  • 17% of small business owners are planning to leave their business in the next two years.
  • 40% percent will follow in five years.

As baby boomers bid goodbye to the market, it is imperative a business owner – new, existing or exiting – invests in long term strategy to generate an appealing, professional and competitive image.

Perception dominates buyer opinion; a business sale should be supported by a compelling marketing pitch, forward planning and extensive preparation. Capture their attention, invoke their emotions and create an investment out of a successful business history.

What are common plan impediments?

Research shows 70& of businesses classify succession and exit strategy as important, though only twelve per cent have taken the concluding step and secured a viable plan. Some common factors in failing to exit plan or strategise include:

Age – Exit planning becomes increasingly relevant as a business owner ages, accumulating experience and insight into positive principles. You shouldn't wait til the eve of retirement however, to contact a consultancy and develop a succession strategy – any business owner, of any stage or age can and should invest in an exit strategy.

Understanding – Business owners and entrepreneurs often ignore the importance of planning for the far future. The value of a succession strategy can be calculated by the total of sale price.
