The HGA The Huntington Group Associates "Transition Assistance to privately held companies"
Preparation for Sale
Want the most value for what you created?
Preparation, Timing and Presentation make all the difference in what you get.
You have no doubt heard of "Staging" a Home for sale. A properly prepared business will appraise at a higher value, sell faster, and sell with fewer contingencies. Transition from Entrepreneurial to Professional Management! (You can sell your business, but you can't sell yourself)
Examples of issues inhibiting a successful sale and maximizing market value:
Poorly presented financial statements that do no capture true historical profits.
Current financial results to do represent the future potential
Prospective buyers want to pay you on future profits
Hidden opportunities not well presented
Too much reliance on the business owners
Family members hold key positions
Clutter on the Balance Sheet.
Wrong Sales Broker\Intermediary
Too much sales concentration
Weak systems and controls
Accountant and Lawyer not vested in a Sale
Concern with Key Employees and Competitors
Not understanding or planning for the Net after Income Tax proceeds from the sale.
We specialize in preparing privately held middle market companies and can guide you through the process.
