We’re ready to sell a business that isn’t going to the market. Why? The owners asked us to create a contingency plan in case:
a) something unforeseen happened to the CEO or
b) the business was approached by an unsolicited buyer
They want a plan in place, ready to execute, should the need arise. Why the investment?
Every stakeholder will have greater confidence in the business’s ability to weather a tragedy.
Leaders will use this process to as a strategic planning tool for growth.
This business will have a rapid response and better leverage if they’re ever approached by a prospective buyer.
Whether they want to sell or need to execute a crisis plan, they’ll be ready. In the meantime, they’ll have unique insight to inform growth. It’s a proactive exit strategy, built at the best time: before they’re ready to leave.
