Frequently asked questions

Have questions? We are here to help.

You need a balanced view on what this impact can be like, with some aspects below:

Pro’s

  • Return focus to the core parts of the business
  • Adapting to changing market circumstances and landscape
  • Shedding non performing parts of the business to another party for some consideration
  • Create efficiencies in current operations
  • Positive impact on financial position – cost reduction and return on investment

Con’s

  • Change to manage with staff and stakeholders
  • Requires effort to realise the benefit of the changes
  • May take longer to adapt
  • Will need resilience to stay the path
  • Legal considerations will need to be understood and stepped through

You always have to start with the end in mind and work backwards. Examples of the points to consider are as follows;

  • When do I want to exit?
  • How much do I want for my business?
  • Do I want to exit totally or partially?
  • Do I have family members I want to transition to?
  • How do I maximise the value?
  • What do I need to do to ready my business for sale/ transition?

There are many reasons why a business owner may want to exit their business. Some of the more common reasons are:

  • It’s time to retire
  • An offer for the business has been made that is hard to refuse
  • The business is not making enough money to keep going
  • The owner wants to cash in on the success of the business and use that money for other purposes
  • It’s time to pass the business on to family members or key employees
  • There have been changes in family circumstances, such as illness or marriage breakdown
  • There are changes in the business owner’s circumstances, such as illness or old age
  • The business is faced with increased competition and decide that continuing to operate the business is not worth the effort
  • The return on investment is too low, so the owner wants to try something different
  • The business is in financial distress, and it is time to get out to avoid liquidation
  • The business has failed, and liquidation is the only option.

Regardless of your reasons, planning your exit to maximise your business’ value will probably be the most important decision made during your business’s lifecycle. You will undoubtedly improve the success of your exit strategy if you seek professional advice throughout the life of the business, not just at the time you want to exit.
