Cash out. Move on. Finish strong.
You’ve built a successful business. Now you’re ready to move on. The idea of turning years of hard work into your last — and often largest — business deal can seem both exhilarating and overwhelming. Where do you begin?
While selling a business is a complex process, it’s what we do every day at Allan Taylor & Co. As successful entrepreneurs who have started and sold ventures of our own, we’ve been in the same position you’re in now. We understand that selling a business is more than a transaction. It’s the culmination of an extraordinary accomplishment, and the beginning of what comes next — whether it’s travel, an extended vacation, retirement, or the launch of your next big thing.
It starts with a lot of questions.
- Is now the right time for me to sell my business?
- Will selling be the right exit strategy for me, my family and my business?
- What is my business worth to a buyer?
- What advisors do I need to help me sell my business?
- What types of buyers will be interested in my business?
- What’s the first thing I should do?!
At Allan Taylor & Co. we start by taking the time to get to know you and your business, as well as your goals for a sale. We will provide you with honest feedback about how ready both you and your business are to go to market. We will also help you set realistic expectations for what the selling process entails, and how buyers will view your business.
ARE YOU & YOUR
A 10-POINT CHECKLIST
We help you find answers.
Selling a business is something most owners only do once. You’ve got one shot to get it right. You may be an expert at running your business, but the process of selling will likely be unfamiliar territory. The advisors at Allan Taylor & Co. will lead you through the entire process, from preparing best-in-class marketing materials to finding the right buyer and getting a deal closed. We also work collaboratively with your other advisors (CPA, attorney, financial planner) to ensure that all of your bases are covered. It takes a team effort!
