Exit Planning

After the years of hard work growing your business it is of the utmost importance to avoid mistakes when selling your business. Remarkably, many former business owners report they regretted that the sale of their business did not achieve their personal or business objectives. Research shows that former business owners admit they did not understand all of their options, were unable to make informed decisions, and did not know where to turn for advice and correct information. Common mistakes include:

  • Not knowing when to exit their business
  • Being reactive rather than proactive
  • Missed strategic opportunities
  • Not knowing the value of their companies
  • Not knowing where and how to find successors or buyers
  • Paying too much in taxes when selling their companies

A well-developed exit strategy shows you, as a business owner, how to maximize the value of your business and minimize taxes. It also ensures that you will achieve all your personal and financial objectives in the process. Connecor helps business owners define and implement exit strategies. A well written exit strategy is a comprehensive road map that enables business owners to successfully exit a privately held business. The exit strategy asks and answers all the critical questions that business owners and their advisory must consider when the time has come for them to leave a company. An exit from a business can mean the following:

  • Succession by a family member;
  • Contract new management;
  • Looking at a management buy-in (MBI);
  • Looking at a management buy-out (MBO);
  • A merger with a competitor, supplier or client;
  • Selling the company;
  • Selling the assets;
  • Liquidation of the company;

We make the transfer of ownership as smooth as possible and allow current and future owners to focus on the business itself, by overseeing all the necessary steps to realize the chosen exit route.

Entry Plan

When considering an entry in a new market, or an expansion or diversification of existing activities, a buyer or investor has several options to pursue their goals. The acquisition of an existing company is but one of these options, Other entry options are:

  • Growing internally;
  • Starting the activities from scratch;
  • Looking for a merger;
  • Looking for a joint-venture;
  • Looking for a partner, cooperation (license) agreement;

Other Management Consultancy

Whether raising finance, tempting potential buyers or evaluating an acquisition, a key aspect is the expected performance of the business. Those preparing financial projections can be tempted to overstate whilst those receiving them can be sceptical.

Our team of professionally qualified accountants have experience in a wide range of industries that, together with a continuous process of researching industry and economic data combined with extensive spreadsheet modelling capabilities, allows them to produce detailed and sustainable financial projections tailored to the assignment in hand.

Detailed and often complicated financial projections prepared by promoters or corporates seeking funds or by equity houses or lenders investing in a deal are prone to arithmetical inaccuracies, errors in employing assumptions or mistakes in inserting formulae in a worksheet. This could potentially lead to inaccurate, or worse, wrong financial projections and expected results, jeopardizing a potential transaction.

Our team of professionally qualified consultants has experience in preparing complex and detailed financial projections and is best placed to validate models used in financial transactions. They bring with them extensive spreadsheet modeling capabilities and commercial knowledge, allowing them to identify errors and provide constructive solutions.

The buoyant regional economies, considerable global interest in the region and maturing and consolidation of local businesses has resulted in increased M&A and private equity activity in the region. This has led to creation of business combinations, whether by acquisition of shares, net assets or collections of assets.

Our Management Consulting team has extensive experience of the identification and measurement of intangible assets, contingent liabilities and onerous contracts acquired in a business combination. Our involvement provides third parties with assurance that the process has been rigorously conducted and is free from management bias.

Over time as businesses develop, grow and diversify, the capital or corporate structures that are developed along the way are often those most easily done at the time and are then rarely re-examined at a later date.

Our relationships with clients are ones of understanding their long-term objectives. Consequently,
critically examining a capital or corporate structure can be a crucial element in streamlining a group in order that it can reach “to the next level”. Our knowledge of local, free zone and offshore jurisdiction company laws enables us to provide clear solutions to corporate structuring issues that support and lend strength to client long-term goals.
