When To Sell Your Business

Heritage Financial hosted a webinar about the state of the M&A market for small-to-mid-size private businesses. The last decade has been represented by a strong seller’s market. So we wanted to answer the question:

The key points that Heritage President and Senior Wealth Manager, Sammy Azzouz, and Dunn Rush & Co. Partner, Greg Rush discussed were:

  • If interest rates rise going forward, the M&A market will likely become less favorable for sellers. Hear Sammy and Greg discuss this specific point.
  • Even if that happens, business owners can still prepare their business now to achieve the best possible price, terms, and outcome in the future by taking these key steps.
  • In order to exit your business on your own terms, you need to know your number – what you need to net from a sale of your business. The easiest way to answer this question is to create a comprehensive financial plan.

If you missed the live discussion, you can listen to a replay of the webinar.
