By their very nature most entrepreneurs will seek at some point to exit their business and maximise the return on both their personal and financial investment.
As such, while it may seem counterintuitive, details of exactly how you are going to exit your business should be an intrinsic part of your initial business plan and can aid your investment planning.
At Bank of Scotland Private Banking we are only too conscious that potential private investors favour businesses with clearly identified strategic goals. Therefore, a business plan with a carefully considered exit strategy could provide private investors with the confidence they need to invest for the longer term.
In truth there are really only half a dozen ways to activate an effective exit strategy.
The critical factor in all of these exit strategies is the planning. And, in all but the last, on gradual withdrawal from the business whilst ensuring it is passed into safe hands.
