Selling a New Zealand Business with “No Regrets”: through using Exit Planning to sell the Asset that makes up most of your Wealth.
By Bruce McGechan.
Selling a business isn’t a transaction. It is the start of the next stage of you and your spouse’s life. It is the wealth that will help you achieve a successful retirement.
And yet 4 out of 5 businesses do not sell. Of those that do sell, 75% of business owners profoundly regret their exit 12 months later.
The business sale process is broken. Not just in New Zealand but around the world. In the US, a new process has been developed called exit planning. This process maximises the business value, and financially and personally prepares the business owner and family for retirement.
This book applies this Exit Planning Institute process to NZ business. It has two parts:
1) Exit Planning that prepares the business for sale and
2) The business sale process.
It also explains Valuation and the other Exit Options including Management Buyout, Family Transfer, Private Equity and Recapitalisation.
It is the book every business owner should read before they exit their business.
