It’s a tough market for potential sellers. Are you making it tougher? Is your business at risk?
Too Many Businesses Are At Risk
Did you know that for every 100 businesses in the lower middle market:
80% of companies are not ready for a transaction. When they approach an intermediary (broker, IB, M&A)
they get turned away. (80 not ready)
40% of the remaining 20% will fail as well from poor planning/preparation. (8 fail)
>50% of M&A transactions fail because of low valuations (<$5M). (6 fail)
We can double those valuations in the years leading up to a transaction
>80% of mergers and acquisitions never meet their long-term objectives.
(9 never hit long-term objectives)
50% of sellers are already under compulsion to sell when they reach out to an M&A. (3 compelled to sell)
That leaves <3 who prepare, sell successfully, and meet long term goals.
