Maximum Valuation – Achieving the maximum valuation in conjunction with completing a successful transaction will be based on a series of factors; our assessment will review these and allow us to make recommendations on how to prepare the business for the desired outcome

Optimum Timing – There are a multitude of reasons you may be considering selling your business. Your key drivers could be the completion of a period of solid trading and the ability to demonstrate a strong track record and secure a high valuation, or a one off opportunity might have been presented from the market. It could be more personal; you could have fallen out of love with your business or feel you do not add the same value, but with all of these drivers you must be sure your business is exit ready

Right Strategy – This will become apparent once there is clarity around the shareholders desired outcomes. Once the ‘wish list’ is drawn up a strategy can be developed to ensure all stakeholder aspirations can be achieved. It is critical to start this process in good time, both to prepare the business for exit and achieve the desired outcomes

Best Buyer – This is an interesting question and the answer can vary depending which stakeholder viewpoint is being considered. It is important to consider the current and future requirements of the business, its people and its external customers. If you can get the right balance it can be a win-win on all sides

Least Risk – Risk can be measured in different ways, completing a successful transaction within a given time frame may be one goal, or achieving a certain financial outcome. Risk can also be about protecting internal stakeholders (such as key personnel) within the business. As part of our initial risk assessment we will take time to understand what the key drivers are

Exit Ready Planning – Once the preferred outcome has been agreed, we can start the exit planning process. This will be very different for each business, as every business is unique and so are the ideal outcomes. Through our series of diagnostic assessments we will be able to advise on the planning required to make the business exit ready and achieve the full potential in the required timeline. The combination of the Harpers/Meridian partnership will bring together the best talent to help you achieve a successful sale

Our Exit Program focuses on improving valuation drivers; increasing profit, mitigating risk and improving the valuation multiple. Improvements in these areas will increase business valuation and improve the probability of a successful exit.

To help you understand your Exit Options (Strategic Sale, Private Equity, Management Buyout and more) where you can increase the business valuation we use our Exit Diagnostic tool. This workshop covers the 7 areas of your business that are important in leveraging additional value from an Exit.

From this session, we can develop a clearly defined roadmap to take you from your current state all the way to a successful exit.
