About Exit Decisions

The IF, WHEN, & HOW of Exiting your Business.

Exit Decisions was developed to help business owners and their families understand the various options and issues regarding the future ownership of their business. We do so by offering unbiased, sometimes unfiltered advice, about the core principles and topics owners must acknowledge and answer in order to determine their “best” path for the business, their family, and themselves.

Our educational advice helps owners focus on building their businesses’ value while “de-risking” both the business and the owner. These factors not only strengthen any business but also provide an owner with more “exit” options. More options mean better decisions. In other words, owners will have a greater chance to exit their business on their terms.

Exit Decisions was created by Frank Michel, a partner in Brandywine Mergers & Acquisitions, LLC. The need for a matter of fact and targeted, pre-sale view on a company and an owner became clear. With our partners we can help you evaluate, enhance, and exit your business.

Are you doing the right things to have a valuable exit on your terms and timing?

Are you doing the right things to have a valuable exit on your terms and timing?

You have worked hard, made sacrifices, and certainly made many tough decisions.

You built a successful business.

Sometimes you had help, sometimes out there on your own. Like every other business owner, there does come a time to decide, “what’s next? What is next for me and my business?” For most owners, that means it is now time to harvest, realize, and truly enjoy the real worth you have created.

Most likely, you got into your business for the freedom it gives you and your family. That freedom can come in the form of money, pursuit of a passion, being in charge, etc. There definitely comes a time when the most effective manner for you to continue that freedom is to actually exit your business, in one way or another, realize the true value, and fully embrace your next chapter in life.

Often hardest part is the first step, making the decision to exit your business. We admit it, this can be a bit daunting and quite frankly, it should be. As matter of fact, for most owners, the sale of their business is the single largest transaction they will ever make. And that is just one way to exit a business.

Most owners perhaps like you, who want to sell their business will not be able to do so. The statistics show that less than 30% of companies that try to sell are successful. Also, half of business sales are not necessarily by the owner’s choice, often they are set off by unplanned, outside forces. Lack of preparation, or even awareness allows these issues to rob owners of their business “freedom” and limiting their exit options.

You worked for and deserve an exit of your choice.

We are here to help you find that.
