For those business owners who are thinking about selling in 2023 or possibly later, you will want to be a part of our newsletter series starting this fall called Getting Ready to Sell in 2023. Each Friday morning, you will have a new topic and words of wisdom you can follow based upon proven completed transactions and lessons learned by other sellers.
During a 16-week period, we will be covering all sorts of topics that are specifically geared towards getting you prepared to be in the best position possible to sell. Here are some of the exciting topics we will cover in depth in our series:
- When is the perfect time to go to market
- How long and what is the process involved in selling your company
- How to identify your ideal buyer
- Are you a portfolio company, a tuck-in, or add-on? Do you know the difference?
- Valuations in the marketplace today
- What is the right size of a buyer for you?
- A deep dive on recurring vs repeat vs contractual revenue
- Identify your EBITDA and normalizations
- Make sure you understand what belongs in the Cost of Goods Sold section of your financials
- Product margins you should be striving to hit
- Fees you can expect to pay in a transaction
- Documents you can expect to see in a transaction
- And much more…
Some of these posts will be in-depth emails and others will refer you to resources we have already created for our past clients.
If you are a regular follower of our weekly newsletter, your first edition of Getting Ready to Sell in 2023 will be in your inbox on September 9th. But don’t worry, if you are just joining our newsletter, we will make sure you get caught up with our past posts so you can stay current with the rest of our readers.
Finally, we will also prepare a special Q&A post for those of you who comment back and want further clarification on any of the content we provide. We think this is the most comprehensive FREE series you will find on how to begin an M&A transaction. Even if selling is not in your plans for the next 3 – 5 years, there is a lot of information here to get you thinking about what an M&A transaction involves; you don’t want to miss it.
Remember, the most successful transactions are completed by those who plan and prepare. And this series will help you get there!
See you on the inside!
