Your Exit Pathway is tailored to your exact requirements, based on the three core stages:
1. Business analysis and plan creation
Firstly, we need to establish where your business is now and where you want it to be when you leave. Our team will review your business and current strategy, followed by a valuation from both technical and commercial viewpoints. The advice will be combined into an action plan for the business leading up to your exit. We'll talk you through the pros and cons of selling, management buy out or employee ownership, then compare the time, probability and risks of each to ensure we pick the exit option best suited to you.
2. Implementation and ongoing assessment
Once you decide which strategy is right for you and the business, you can rely on our support to ensure everything goes to plan. You’ll be hearing from us regularly to monitor your business’ progress against the action plan, adjust the strategy as required and ensure your end goal remains suitable and achievable.
3. Exit process
Having executed the action plan to maximise business value, your exit process will begin, either by starting a formal process to put your business to market or by evaluating a direct approach. Our team can advise you on the right deal, ensure that it’s on the best possible terms, for the greatest return, and that the completed deal is the same as the one agreed at the outset
