Starting and building a business is tough, but exiting can be even tougher.
Owners of private, mid-market companies, who are considering its sale should execute the process with forethought and precision, sell for the correct reasons, have a clear understanding of the value, appreciate the credit and capital markets, and be prepared to deal with financial, operational, technology, and human resource issues during the transaction.
