Business Exit Strategy Consulting

If you are a business owner, it’s crucial to have a concrete business exit strategy in place. Whether you’re considering a management buyout or selling to a third party, optimising the value of your business is key. This not only involves financial considerations but also ensures the smooth operation of your business on a regular basis.

Effective business exit planning can provide multiple benefits, including increased valuation and a smoother business acquisition process. If a potential investor is interested in your business, they may not want to take on the daily operations by themselves. This means that any aspects of your business that rely heavily on your personal involvement could actually hinder the sale, or lower the value if the cost of replacing that activity is not commercially viable.

At our accounting firm, Wilkinson Accounting Solutions, we have a team of qualified finance and operations professionals who can help you build a successful exit plan. Depending on your business model, our key services include:

●  Full business analysis to ensure governance and controls for a smooth business exit planning
●  Forecasting and cash flow analysis to enhance growth plans
●  Bookkeeping and finance support to streamline processes
●  Advice on how to increase the  business valuation before exiting
●  Reporting on key performance indicators (KPIs) to track progress
●  Introduction to reporting that builds buyer trust and accelerates the business acquisition process.
●  Assistance with pitch decks and investor reports for sale or funding

In addition to our business exit consulting services, we also offer comprehensive business accounting services, including tax audits, and provide other additional information to help your business.

Are you thinking about exiting your business? If so, you’re not alone. Many business owners eventually decide to sell their businesses, either to retire, pursue other interests, or to raise capital for other investments.

Exiting your business can be a complex process, but it doesn’t have to be. With the right planning and execution, you can sell your business for the best possible price and ensure a smooth transition for your employees and customers.

Here are some of the things you need to consider when exiting your business:

  • Your exit strategy: What is your goal for exiting your business? Are you looking to sell the business outright, or are you interested in a management buyout or an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP)?
  • The valuation of your business: How much is your business worth? This will depend on a number of factors, including the industry, the size of the business, and the current economic climate.
  • The marketing of your business: How will you market your business to potential buyers? This will involve creating a sales brochure, developing a website, and networking with potential buyers.
  • The negotiation of the sale price: Once you have found a potential buyer, you will need to negotiate the sale price. This is an important step, as the sale price will affect your overall proceeds from the sale.
  • The closing of the sale: Once you have agreed on a sale price, you will need to close the sale. This involves signing all the necessary paperwork and transferring ownership of the business.

 

Wilkinson Accounting Solutions can help you with every step of the exit process. We have the experience and expertise to help you get the best possible price for your business and ensure a smooth transition for your employees and customers.
