Key take-aways from Preparing for Exit Focus Dinner

We caught up with Tony Robison from Scottish Equity Partners who told us his top 3 take-aways from our Preparing for Exit round-table discussion that took place recently.  Here are his thoughts: 

  • Identify your potential acquirers and articulate a compelling story for each buyer group – select and position KPI’s, highlight potential synergies and demonstrate how your business can add strategic value.
  • Identify possible value erosion – be realistic about where negotiation on price might come from and address these issues early on.
  • Manage the expectations of all stakeholders throughout the process – advisers, existing and target shareholders, key customers and suppliers, senior management team etc.  Good communication alongside strong shareholder alignment will ensure a more successful outcome for all your stakeholders.
