There are millions of baby boomer business owners who need to transition the ownership of their companies to others. Many prefer to transition the business to insiders while others want to sell externally. Most are unsure about how much money they will need, what their business is worth and how much they will net from different types of buyers. This presentation will unravel the mystery of ownership transition planning and provide you with a process for: Determining your goals both financially and non-financially; Calculating how much money you will need from your transition; Estimating what your business is worth and how to maximize its value; Outlining the different types of buyers and the pros and cons of each; Understanding how the transition will be taxed and what fees you will incur; and Drafting an ownership transition plan that achieves all of your goals. Don't let another year go by without having a plan to ensure your business continuity and your personal financial freedom.
