Exit, Transition and Succession


Exit, Transition and Succession

At some point, most business owners will eventually decide to exit their company because of age, health concerns, or a desire to pursue other life goals. They may decide that it is time to step back a bit or completely retire. They may sell the company, transfer the company to others or close down the company altogether. It’s an important life transition that should be approached with skilled and trusted advisors.

Leaving your company should be as well-planned as starting and building your business. In fact, planning should begin at least 24 to 36 months before your desired exit because of complex issues, such as business valuation, legal and tax considerations, family matters, and coaching your successors.

Planning an exit is often a complex and sometimes emotional process for a business owner and their family. Every entrepreneur should have an exit plan, yet many exit their companies without one, which can create costly complications. We provide the CFO-level support needed to assure the greatest value is realized and a seamless transition is accomplished.

Many of our FocusCFO team are Certified Exit Planning Advisors, who can provide an additional level of skilled guidance to business owners.
