It is an inevitable, undeniable fact that your business will change hands at some point into the future. In most cases, when a business owner is asked about their plans for the future, you will hear that their “plan” is to; “sell the business, retire, invest in ‘something’, and play golf”. However, only 2 out of 10 business actually sell, which leaves 80% of companies who do not, and of those, most of the former businesses owners are depressed a year or so after their transition, as well as leave behind a good portion of proceeds that they could have received, and even leave their children, employees, and/or customers in a bad situation after the transaction. This is because:

  • 93% have no formal “life-after” business plan
  • Two-thirds of owners are not familiar with all exit options
  • 83% have no written transition plan
  • 49% have done no planning at all
  • 78% have no formal transition team
  • 40% have no plans to cover illness, death, or forced exit
  • Half of all owners need the company to remain profitable during and after the transition plan, yet 86% have not taken on a strategic review or a value enhancement project
  • 56% felt they had a good idea of what their business is worth, yet only 18% have had no formal valuation in the last two years.
