We help you explore all of your exit options and develop an exit strategy that achieves your personal vision. Your strategy will include a roadmap to maximize your business value and be highly attractive to potential acquirers. The roadmap also helps your acquirer to be successful after the transaction.
Over the next 10 years there will be more businesses for sale than the market will bear. Current research has shown 80% of companies below $50M do not sell. With Cornerstone, you can overcome these odds and achieve the financial reward you have worked so hard to earn.
Managing the sale of a business is a full-time job. Cornerstone manages this process so you can continue focusing on the business while Cornerstone finds the best buyer candidates. After buyers have been fully vetted and qualified, your advisor will manage negotiations and coordinate all activities required to sell your business. As a full service advisory firm, we also help develop a transition plan so the new owner is positioned for success.
During the sales process your Advisor will:
Prepare a Confidential Business Review to market your business
Create a private cloud based data room for all relevant documents -- documents required by the buyer, attorneys and bankers
Market the business and qualify potential buyers
Negotiate LOI's to purchase the business prior to talking with the owner
Facilitate negotiations that lead to a binding offer
Managing the closing process with attorneys and bankers
Develop a transition plan for the new owner
"Cornerstone helped us sell our business by creating a solid Exit Plan and marketing our business the right way. Our Advisor attracted qualified buyers who made multiple full price offers. I truly believe we couldn't have sold our business without Cornerstone."
