Exit Planning

Successful entrepreneurs that exit their businesses with maximum value recognise the importance of key value drivers and building the appropriate strategy, structure, systems, processes and teams to allow the business to realise its true potential.

The Importance of Getting it Right

For the majority of business owners, shareholders etc… the opportunity to exit a business whether via a trade sale, a sale to a strategic buyer or indeed a sale to a financial investor is often a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Planning for a successful exit often requires an unswerving focus on developing;

  • The organisation’s strategic plan and ability to scale-up

  • The organisation’s overall financial performance

  • The strength of the organisation’s cashflow position

  • The organisation’s market position, USP’s, and intellectual property

  • The organisation’s contracted and/or recurring revenues

  • The organisation’s Net Promoter Score

  • The organisation’s reliance on key customers, suppliers and staff

  • The organisation’s reduced reliance on the founder/shareholders

Whilst the challenges of building a highly successful business are considerable, preparing a business for sale in a way that maximises its true value requires a different set of skills and a mindset that is different again from the earlier approaches in the business’ previous growth phases.

Through many years of experience we know that successful deals are a blend of;

  • the price achieved,
  • the structure of the consideration,
  • the buyers future plans to scale the business further and,
  • the timescales involved

At Chalkhill Blue we have considerable experience of helping clients not only plan but also execute the successful sale of their business.
