SELLING YOUR BUSINESS
Owning a business and selling one are different experiences, requiring completely different skill sets. Having the right M&A advisors by your side is critical to maintaining leverage and maximizing value.
EXIT PLANNING ADVISORS
If you have received an unsolicited offer, or are considering your exit options, we can provide the knowledge you need to reach your goals. Schedule a confidential conversation with one of our advisors to discuss your current situation and next steps.
You can also complete our detailed survey to provide our advisor with some of the basic information needed to begin the exit planning conversation with a better understanding of what you should expect during the sale and transition of your company.
You’ve spent years or even decades growing your business.
When the time comes to divest from your business, our proven Assurance360™ process makes sure it’s done on your terms.
WHAT A TYPICAL CORNERSTONE CLIENT LOOKS LIKE
IN OUR MOST SUCCESSFUL TRANSACTIONS, MOST OF THE FOLLOWING HOLD TRUE
- Are individual or family owned businesses
- Are typically “first time sellers” about to embark on the largest financial transaction of their life
- Run a successful business with $5-$150M in annual revenue and/or $1-$10M EBITDA
- Want to sell the majority to 100% of the company
- Want to see the business succeed beyond the transaction
- Understand the value of working with specialists and are willing to invest in a process that will lead to the best results and the most options
- Want the peace of mind knowing they didn’t leave any money on the table
WHY SELL A BUSINESS WITH CORNERSTONE?
TEAM APPROACH: Your deal will be staffed by a full team at Cornerstone consisting of several specialists for each stage of the process. In addition, as a founding partner in the Cornerstone International Alliance, we can leverage the depth, breadth, and expertise of the entire alliance.
ASSURANCE 360™: Our proven concierge-like process yields higher than average closing ratios. This holistic approach goes beyond maximizing value to include tax mitigation, emotional readiness, and other value points specific to you.
NO B.S. RULE: We tell you what you need to hear (not just what you want to hear), so you can make a well-informed decision. Plus, to ensure we do what we say we’re going to do, we only take on a limited clientele per advisor and provide a robust support team committed to deal success.
These three “Cornerstones” result in our closing ratio being significantly higher than the national average. In most cases we achieve multiple offers per client – driving value and giving you options to choose the best successor for you and your business.
