For some businesses, exiting or selling will be a straightforward process; however, for most owners, a business succession or exiting will be difficult, expensive, and risky. Some of the biggest challenges are: finding a buyer, due diligence, and valuation.
Finding a Buyer:
in the right circumstances, At The Helm can partner with you to become your buyer, this can save up to 10% in brokerage fees and months spent looking for a buyer.
is a process often used to grind the owner and the price down. At The Helm uses a process called “improvement diligence.” Instead of looking for flaws in the business to grind the price down; we are looking for improvement opportunities to make the business more valuable for all parties.
