Pre-sale Liquidity Planning

Many business owners balk at considering the sale of all or part of the enterprise for a number of reasons. It's hard to give up stewardship over a business that's been in the family for generations; however, there are strategies that allow you to maintain some control. The trade-off is that you'll typically raise less cash when you retain more control. The main strategies include:

  • Debt dividend recapitalization
  • Minority equity recapitalization
  • Majority/100% sale to a private equity firm (financial buyer)
  • Sale of 100% interest to a strategic buyer

In addition, we can provide assistance with business valuation prior to the sale of the business.
