Your Exit Pathway is tailored to your exact requirements, based on the three core stages:
1. Plan and define
Firstly, we need to establish where your business is now and where you want to take it to. Our team will help you define your goals as shareholders in terms of timing and value, review your current business strategy, and perform a current valuation. We'll talk you through the different types of exits including selling, management buy out or employee ownership, comparing the relative merits and risks of each route, to ensure we pick the exit option best suited to you. The advice will be combined into an action plan for the business to grow to the desired exit valuation and ambitions.
2. Refine and explore
Having defined the exit path which is right for you and the business, we will regularly test and redefine the transaction to ensure your end goal remains suitable and achievable. We will start to explore the market and support you through this to lay the groundwork for the next phase.
3. Realisation - exit process
After executing 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.
