John F. Dini, nationally known author, speaker and expert on business ownership will join the Biz Broker Talk radio team to discuss the five ways owners can choose to leave their companies.

Sooner or later, every business owner leaves his or her business. There are five ways to exit your company. Choosing how you want to transition from your business isn’t a decision to be left to the last minute.

An orderly succession is the least you owe to your employees, your customers and your family. Depending on your current success and eventual objectives, one of the following is going to be your option.

1.     Close down the business

2.     Sell it to a third party

3.     Sell it to employees

4.     Sell it to family members

5.     Let it come as a surprise!

Preparation is critical for any chosen exit. What you will do in the company to prepare it for an outside sale is very different from how it should look for a sale to insiders. In this episode, we will examine how things that you can start doing right away can dramatically effect your long-term equity.


About the Show

For almost all sellers, their small business is their retirement which means the sale of their business will be their largest financial transaction in their lifetime. It is too important not to use an experienced team of professionals for this event. Almost every business owner thinks their business is worth $1M but is it really? Talking to an experienced professional a few years in advance can help maximize sales value and finding a true market price for the business so that it can be successfully sold.
