Selling your company is a trying time, similar to selling your house. For those unfamiliar with this process, the challenging thoughts will be: 'How do I start?'; 'Who can help me?'; 'How much can I get for the business?'; 'Who is most likely to buy it, and where do I find them?'; 'When should I do it?' This book will answer all your questions. Easy to read, it covers all the practical aspects of preparing your business for sale. It will show you just how a potential acquirer will view a company that is up for sale. This will enable you to: - develop a business profile that will attract buyers - and maintain their interest until completion - build into the business those aspects that will encourage a buyer to increase their bid. This book will take you through the sale process: preparation, marketing, acceptance of offer, the 'due diligence examination' (the vendor's nightmare), successful completion, and beyond. - What you need to do when selling your company - Setting your desired exit package - Constructing an exit strategy that works for you - Introducing a corporate structure to make sale easier - Organising company finances and tax liabilities in preparation - Matching results to budgets - Identifying your company's intellectual assets - Telling staff about the company sale - Pre-sale and post-completion activities Contents: Acknowledgements; Introduction; 1.
