The Pros and Cons of Common Business Sale Options
Selling a business isn’t simple, but it pays to know what options are available to you and if they are the right fit. Boulay’s Dan Markowitz will describe the following common methods for selling your business and further discuss what advantages and disadvantages each offer to the selling owner, shareholders, and to the future of the company:
- Strategic Buyer
- Private Equity
- Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP)
- Management Buyout
Retiring Without Selling
Selling a business outright is not always the most appropriate or appealing option for a business owner; He/She may want to step away from the day to day, but retain ownership. Mike Frommelt, CEO of KeyStone Search, explains how to make this happen by creating a structure and leadership team that not only maintains the business, but actually grows it while the owner retires or semi-retires.
Mike’s presentation will cover the following:
- Creating a structure for successfully stepping back
- Evaluating the current team for successors
- What to look for in leaders who can actually grow the company
