Exit Planning Valuations

Exit Planning is a process, not an event.  Entrepreneurs that successfully cash out from their business often have one thing in common:  they’ve planned for their exit.

Business valuations for exit planning is one of the top reasons we are engaged. Smart owners seek to understand – and benchmark – present value so that they can plan a course of action forward.  Afterall, how can you effectively plan for your exit (a financial event)  when you don’t know the starting point (your current financial position)?

The general exit planning process is:

It all starts with a formal, credentialed valuation.  Our goal is to provide a thoroughly reasoned, well supported report that shows not only the value calculated, but also the framework and underlying assumptions that go into the development of value.

Why a Valuation for Exit Planning?


Know where you are starting.  Studies show most business owners drastically over estimate their company’s value.  Being honest with yourself is the first step in planning.

Financial Planning

Give your financial planner hard data to work with.  Studies consistently indicate that, for most small business owners, their business is their largest source of net worth.  How can your financial planner plan without this data?


Now isn’t always the right time to pursue an exit.  But a byproduct of a business appraisal is a roadmap to enhancing value.  User your valuation to help focus your improvement efforts.

Exit Right.
