A pre-exit involves selling your business in two steps. In the first step, you immediately realise a significant part of your equity and continue your business activities, only now jointly with an investor. Depending on the type of investor, the remaining shares in your business are usually sold within the next four to seven years.
Would you like to capitalise on your success as an entrepreneur and work gradually towards a successful sale?
- Partial capitalisation of your business assets
- Shared control of your organisation
- Access to added value, knowledge and network of the investor
To determine what type of investor is the best fit for your organisation, we prepare an inventory of what the needs of you and your business are. Based on this, we present a selection of parties that would represent a suitable fit. Thanks to our many years of experience, we have an extensive network of investors that we know well and, in some cases, personally. The aim is to select the investor that can offer the desired expertise, for example jointly to fast-track the growth of the business (internationally), to professionalise further, or to make one or more acquisitions possible.
This could also be the perfect time to make management team members co-shareholders. Whether a majority or a minority of shares are sold to the investor, they will want to be involved in certain business decisions or even to have a deciding vote.
