Exiting your business is a massive moment for most people. It can bring up a lot of emotion as often your business is so much of your life. And there are so many important considerations.
For some exiting the business means the complete sale to an external party. For others it is succession planning – handing it on to the family or business partners. Either way all the same considerations are in play – who do you sell to? When? Maximising the valuation? Funding the exit? What do to next with one’s life? How to manage the wealth and look after the children?
At Shirlaws we specialise in this area. Our Assay teams help business owners understand, plan and transact and our team at Sequent help families with the next stage of your life, making your wealth work for you and provide the lifestyle you worked so hard for.
Most businesses focus purely on increasing profits in order to increase their valuation.
For business owners considering an exit, the Assay proprietary methodology increases the value of businesses by focusing on the valuation multiple in the valuation formula: valuation = profit x multiple.
We specialise in maximising the value of businesses by getting investors or acquirers to value your business from a strategic perspective, creating a multiple uplift, as opposed to treating their assessment as a simple financial transaction.
Our global corporate finance teams combine experience of owning and running a business with the process of maximising equity value for middle market business owners.
