Selling Your Company

Are you considering the sale of your company?  If not now, perhaps in the next several years?

There are several motivating factors for selling your company and perhaps you fall into one or more of these common categories:

  • Retirement
  • Health Reasons
  • Partner Split/Divorce
  • No Clear Succession Plan
  • Provide Ownership Opportunity to Management
  • Favorable Market Conditions
  • Leverage Resources and/or Capital of Partner to Expand
  • Divestiture of a Product Line or Business Unit
  • Protection from Creditors/Limit Loss of Equity

The Midwest is filled with small companies, many times family-run business, where the owner has a significant amount of his or her personal and or family net worth tied to the value of the company.

Therefore, the decision to sell your company should be planned in advance and executed by a team that understands how to maximize your company’s value and the proven ability to find the right buyer that will meet your personal and financial goals and objectives.
