Planning is often pushed to the back burner as business owners focus on running their businesses; yet proper planning is the keystone to getting what you deserve for your business. Our advisors have years of experience in valuation techniques, and will give you the personal support you need when considering a sales transaction.

At each step along the way, our advisors will help you navigate the pre business sale preparation process.

Steps typically include evaluating your business, developing a benchmark valuation, drafting a comprehensive action plan and timeline, and planning for the sales process.


The goal of the process is to increase the amount you will ultimately realize from the sale of your business, and increase the likelihood of successfully closing a sale.
