Leading an organization is challenging work. Being the owner, manager, cheerleader, and chief bottle washer can be rewarding, but exhausting. Sometimes it helps to learn about how others go about building their businesses so you can see that there are specific character strengths that you share with other successful, high-performing EOMs. Turns out that we share them too.
Do you want to build your positive legacy? Do you want a capital gain someday? What are the key drivers of Enterprise Value in your business? They are knowable, and you and your team can act on them.
Most owner-managers’ knowledge base of the how the private market works is limited and feels like a disadvantage when considering a capital gain someday. We want to change that. The private transaction market is completely different from the public one and is characterized by asymmetry of risk, experience and information.
Teams work best when members are focused on the same goal and there is role clarity. Objectivity, insight, energy, chemistry, and sense of humor are some characteristics of advisors you want working with you. Who’s on your team?
What EOMs have - a high performing private niche business - is rare and valuable. What investors have is a commodity. What factors should you consider when working with an M+A Advisor and taking the steps to finding your next majority investor?
Choosing your next new majority investor impacts not only financial considerations but also how you will be remembered. How will your hard work be built upon? How will the change register with the employees who helped build your business? Your positive legacy will be felt across many constituencies.
