What makes a business attractive to a buyer?
It’s an inquiry we field often, and it’s one that almost always comes with a series of follow-up questions. What steps can be taken inside of a business to make it more attractive for a sale? And, “how do I know that my business is ready for the transaction dance?”
It’s never too soon to consider the answers to these questions. In 2016, our first edition book was inspired by the popularity of a podcast discussion from 2015 between Trusted Counsel and Focus Investment Banking. This year, we present our second edition book. For this podcast series, Trusted Counsel and Focus Investment Banking united with Aprio, Carabiner Communications, Newport Board Group, and Wilmington Trust to present Prepping The Princess for the Party: Is Your Business Ready to Sell? Trusted Counsel has curated a brand-new podcast series of six 45-minute episodes each on preparing your business for sale.
The following conversations were recorded over the course of February 2018 as a series on the show In Process: Conversations About Business in the 21st Century*, a bi-weekly podcast hosted by Evelyn Ashley and John Monahon of Trusted Counsel. Together, with this second edition book, they are designed to give the enterprising business owner an idea of how to prepare for an exit, even if that transaction is years away from fruition.
