What is Exit Planning?

Exit planning is a proactive, multi-faceted strategy designed to help business owners prepare for their eventual departure from the company. It goes beyond simply finding a buyer. It's about maximizing the value of your business and ensuring a successful handover, whether you're selling to:

  • Family members: Transitioning your legacy within the family requires careful planning to avoid conflict and ensure long-term success.
  • Employees: An employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) or other internal transfer can motivate your team and create a stable future for the business.
  • Third-party buyers: Positioning your business for an attractive sale requires strategic preparation to attract qualified buyers and negotiate the best possible deal.
