Exit Planning is the creation and execution of a comprehensive roadmap allowing business owners to exit from businesses on their own terms, conditions and time lines. It includes the preparation to maximize the value of the business, exploring multiple exit options including transfer ownership to family members, or sales to other shareholders, third parties, employees – Employee Stock Ownership Plan “ESOP”, or management – Management Buy Out “MBO”.
