Timing Is Everything

The best time to sell a business is when:

Internal Factors

  • Business has maximized its operating cash flows based on current management talent and owner’s capital
  • Owners are motivated but not compelled to sell


External Factors

  • More growth expected in the market place
  • Buyers are motivated and competing to buy
  • Finance sources are willing to fund acquisitions
