Step 1: Set Exit Objectives/Goals – When do you want to exit? How much income will you need? To whom will you leave the business?
Step 2: Quantify Available Resources – How much is your business worth? What will the business’ cash flow likely be? What about income from non-business investments?
Step 3: Focus on Business Value – Do you know how to increase the value of your ownership interest? What about protecting the value you’ve already created?
Step 4: Sale to Third Party – Do you know how to sell your business to a third party? How will you maximize your cash and minimize your risk and tax liability?
Step 5: Transfer to Insiders – Do you know how to transfer your business to family, co-owners or employees?
Step 6: Develop a Contingency Plan for the Business – Will your business continue if you do not?
Step 7: Develop a Contingency Plan for the Owner’s Family – Have you provided for your family’s financial well-being should you die or become incapacitated? Before and after your ownership transfer?
