Virtual Program: Successful M&A Exit Strategies and the Journey to an IPO
June 25, 2020 @ 10:30 AM - 11:15 AM
Selling your company or taking it public can be a major life decision, which if done correctly can guarantee the legacy you’ve devoted your life to building. Not only do you want to achieve the highest valuation for your business, but you also want to minimize transaction risks and set yourself up for the highest likelihood of a successful closing.
Many management teams choose to navigate these processes by themselves rather than with professional help. Although it may seem like you’re avoiding costly-looking fees by going the journey alone, as studies have shown you may be sacrificing something much costlier – a higher valuation.
A study done by the University of Alabama and Louisiana Tech University analyzed data on 4,500 middle-market businesses that were sold over the course of the last 30 years. The conclusion of the study was those private sellers who retain the services of an investment banker receive up to a 20% increase in sales price on average. Missing out on 20% could mean tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars are left on the table.
